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, but you can catch me at monthly popup events around the city✨
Special orders are closed for the time being and will be opening back up soon—stay tuned✨
My cakes are available by the slice daily at The Handlebar in Wicker Park and Paulie Gees in Logan Square ✨ The flavor of the month for February is BLACK VELVET.
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 training, and no expectations 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 private commercial kitchen in Humbolt Park and do wholesale, special orders, and popups in Chicago!
Where can I find your cakes? 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! Please note that due to the high demand, Paulie Gee's has a limit of two slices of cake per person, and The Handlebar is dine in only with a limit of one slice per person. 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 ✨
Are your treats nut free?
Many of my baked goods are nut free, but please note that none of them are baked in a 100% nut free kitchen. I do use nut products often, so if your allergy is severe, I'd rather keep you safe! If you have any allergies, you are responsible for disclosing that to me before placing your order.
Do you ship/deliver?
Nope, I can barely keep up with the demand in my own city and shipping is too big of an endeavor for me to take on at this time! 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 today/tomorrow/this weekend, can you have one ready?
Unfortunately not, sorry! I book up far in advance due to the high demand and have a very tight schedule, so I always require at least a couple weeks notice for cake orders ✨
How do I order a cake? Special orders are closed for the time being and will be opening back up shortly! Please stay tuned for updates--I am currently editing my website with a brand new ordering system to streamline the process. Please note that I do not accept orders via email, txt, facebook messenger, or Instagram DM's. Please help me stay organized and place your orders only using the ordering system on my website!
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.
Once I order a cake, where do I pick it up? Pickup is at my kitchen in Humbolt Park, 2636 W Chicago.
How long will your cakes stay fresh if kept refrigerated & uncut? My cakes will stay fresh and moist for up to 7 days in the fridge, or even a month in the freezer!
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!
