Pie, Pie My Darling is a one woman run 100% vegan bakery serving the Chicagoland area since 2014 ✨
I don't have a storefront that's open to the public (yet!), but you can catch me at monthly popup events around the city✨
Special orders are closed for the time being and will be re-opeing in mid-January following my post-holiday break! ✨
The difference between PPMD and any other standard bakery you'd see around town is that I'm running this alone ✨ I started PPMD with no business plan, no agenda, no expectations and no training and have been continually floored by the support & demand from vegans AND non-vegans in chicago. It is truly amazing and humbling and inspiring. I love all of you SO MUCH and I thank you for making my most enjoyable hobby into a career 💖
Frequently asked questions:
Where are you located? I don't have a storefront that's open to the public, but I bake out of a shared commercial kitchen in Humbolt Park and do wholesale, special orders, and popups in Chicago!
Where can I find your cakes? Please note that I'm on a post-holiday break and will not be stocking restaurants with my cakes again until the last week of January! You can find my cakes by the slice daily at Paulie Gees in Logan Square & The Handlebar in Wicker Park. If you're heading to either of these spots from far away, I would highly suggest calling ahead to check the stock, as my cakes DO sell out! They both have tons of vegan options so stick around for lunch/dinner! I also do monthly popups around Chicago—see the “popups” tab for upcoming dates ✨
Are all of your cakes vegan? And do you offer anything gluten free?
Everything is 100% vegan--dairy, egg, and animal-product free! I don't offer anything gluten free at this time due to cross-contamination. Maybe sometime in the future when I have a much larger kitchen to work out of! For now, go check out my friends @mindfulbaking and @bettybotshop! They offer 100% vegan & gluten free cakes ✨
Do you ship/deliver?
Nope, I can barely keep up with the demand in my own city! Pickup only for the time being. That said, some of my customers have had success using a company called "Task Rabbit" to pick up & deliver my items to them locally.
I need a cake for tomorrow, can you have one ready?
Nope, sorry! I book up far in advance and make everything fresh to order, so I always require at least a couple weeks notice ✨
Do you have a full menu of cake flavors with pricing? I took my cake menu down for the time being until orders are back open! Please check back soon.
How do I order a cake? Special orders are closed for the time being and will be opening back up in mid-late January! Please stay tuned for updates--I am currently editing my website with a brand new ordering system to streamline the process. Due to the high volume of orders coming in daily, please allow at least 3-4 weeks to a months advance notice for all orders! I do not accept orders via email, txt, facebook messenger, or Instagram DM's.
Once I order a cake, where do I pick it up? New pickup location is TBA!
I emailed/messaged you a week ago and haven't heard back, did you get it?
Due to the volume of emails and messages coming in on a daily basis, it may take me some time to get back to you. I spend several hours per week in the kitchen and try my best to knock out as many emails as I can throughout the week, so please know that I'm not ignoring you & trying to keep up!
When is your next popup/event? Click the "popups" tab in the main menu to see a full list of my upcoming events!
Do you do wedding cakes? Wedding orders are closed for the time being!
