This spring, Emilou Cadmus, Short Street Cakes’ Cake Lady and Pie Lady in her own right, got her Sandy Mush home kitchen certified and is now offering pies daily at Short Street Cakes!  She also sells pies at the Leicester Tailgate Market on Saturdays.

Below, you will find her extensive Pie menu.  Pies can be ordered 48 hours in advance and picked up Sunday through Thursday at Short Street Cakes (call 828.505.4822) or at her pie stand at the market on Saturdays (call 828.683.9171 or 828.242.5207).  Thanks!

The Dish on the Goods

• 100% organic, NC milled flour
• seasonal local fruit and nuts
• local free range eggs
• 100% made from scratch
• no hydrogenated fats
• lard crusts available by request

I began selling pie as way to use my skills as a baker to engage in the agrarian economy and community of WNC. All of the ingredients I use are natural and minimally processed. I also have a passion for using obscure recipes and specialty ingredients like sorghum, black walnuts, and muscadines. In so doing, I hope to be a part of preserving our unique and lovely Southern Appalachian culture.

    Just found Short Street Cakes and your pies. We are enroute from Knoxville to Fayetteville NC tomorrow morning, and are not above veering off I-40 for a pie. Will you have any pies in stock or do they all have to be pre-ordered? I HATE that I might miss out on such a treat. Thanks.

  3. Tom Hess says:

    Is there a restaurant in Asheville that serves your pies by the slice?

  4. jodirhoden says:

    Tom, as of now I don’t believe there is, but Emilou stocks the case at Short Street Cakes regularly with individual-sized mini pies!

  5. Question: Do you take orders from the Lake Norman area (just a little to far to drive to pick up pies, but would love to order)

  6. jodirhoden says:

    Unfortunately, we only take orders for pick-up in our shop. Thanks for your interest!
