It seems that the popularity of the ‘Pork Pie’ style wedding cake is on the increase around these parts. According to Craig Potter at Potters of Wombwell, such is the demand for them that their popular family owned butchers, situated in the heart of Wombwell High Street, are producing several of them a week during the busy summer wedding month period.
Craig told me a little more as we chatted over a cuppa at their Wombwell shop recently: “It all started off as a customer’s suggestion a couple of years ago and from that, and with the help and the power of social media with lots of people sharing the various pictures on facebook and twitter, word soon spreads around. We recently went to a wedding and the Pork Pie Wedding Cake, that we’d done coincidentally, was the first thing on the buffet table to disappear – the buffet opened at 8pm and by ten past eight it had gone!
Potters do a three tier Pork Pie Wedding Cake – similar to the one in the picture above – which comes with miniature picnic pork pies and garnish to accompany them on the various tiers. These are priced at around £100. All decorations and initials are obviously optional and the pie comes delivered on a rustic style cake board. All pies are bespoke and are baked the day before to ensure the finest quality and of course freshness.
