Edible wedding favours are some of the best, and there’s an enormous variety to choose from. They can go with any theme and offer lots of fun for the bride or groom who loves to cook. Read on to see three DIY tutorials for our mini pie wedding favours.
DIY miniature pie wedding favours.
Mini Apple Pies
Apple pies are a very popular dessert (particularly around the autumn/winter seasons) and that makes them a great choice as a wedding favour. Served with cream, ice-cream, custard, etc, they taste great too.

Think about shape and decoration. You can make your pies in any shape you want—classic circles, squares, love hearts—and then make them extra appealing with your decoration. Use edible embellishments like more fruit or nuts, for example, on top of choosing a pretty packaging/presentation option. Then use a small fork or place card to finish it off.
If you’re particularly kitchen-savvy, you may consider making a range of pies as wedding favours. That way you can better ensure that you cater for all of your guests’ tastes. And with Christmas less than a month away (and especially if you’re having a winter wedding) add a dash of seasonal tradition with mince pies decorated with icing sugar and sprigs of holly. Or make pies with cherries or rich berries drizzled with brandy. You’ll find recipes for anything you want, all across the internet.
