What did you put in this pie? Those were the first words in the email of one of my customers. I'd sent her pie in the mail a few days prior, and since it was one of my newer designs, I anticipated her review. However, her question threw me off.

I was puzzled. My first thought was, "Oh, no. She didn't like it." Then I continued to read. She expressed that the pie was so strong that she didn't have to unwrap the packaging to smell it. I thought to myself, "Okay, that's a good thing." As I continued to read as my customer went on to talk about how she'd put the pie on her kitchen table, and her daughter thought it was real. These were all wonderful things! What in the world was I so nervous about?

Well, the fact of the matter is that this pie wasn't exactly a planned design. I was making a completely different dessert design, and it sort of just happened. My nervousness about the pie was because I really wasn't certain that it would be 'likeable' in comparison to the other pies I'd made.

It's not so much that I thought that the pie wouldn't sell at all. I just didn't expect for this particular pie to be a big seller since it really wasn't meant to be in the first place. I was wrong. I gave this pie to a friend to list on eBay, and the pie sold after a couple of days! After that, I made another and placed it on my shop. When that one sold, I knew that my lemon meringue pie wasn't a flop after all. It was quite amazing!

Since then I've sold many of these lemon meringue pies, and I've even been trying out newer models. Each pie has its own uniqueness, and has made a nice addition to my farmhouse fake food pie collection. Here's a model of the first pie I sold. I can't say that one sold more than the other, but which do you like better?
