Kacie’s journey to pie tin tinkering began at age eight, when she baked her first apple pie—from scratch. Years later, she's still baking, sending off sweets with a special surprise for those who savor every bite: a cheeky message or sweet quote, stamped right into the pan. Her hobby soon led to a full-fledged business, her pie pans selling like hotcakes, er, hot pies. To create her hidden messages, Kacie hand hammers the pie plates, one letter at a time, taking care to precisely line up every character. Then the letters are ink-darkened to make the message pop. So after the last slice is (inevitably, tragically) all gone, at least you’re left with something to make you smile.
