Pies To Crow About - ABC Pie Company

Four & Twenty Blackbirds just in time for pie season! If you're craving something different, then you must try ABC Pie Company; pies made right here in Raleigh and delivered to convenient Triangle establishments. They surely beat hot cross buns!

Owner, Pam Runyan loves to bake pies; apple, pumpkin with pecan streusel, sweet potato pies plain or with meringue, double chocolate chess (gluten free), cherry, mayan chocolate pecan, and strawberry rhubarb to name just a few. She has flavors for any occasion.

Baking pies allows her to put some of the restless energy of having three children in the military to good use. She named her pies ABC Pie Company after her children, Abigail, Bob and Camille.

The pies are available at NOFO in Raleigh, A Southern Season in Chapel Hill and introducing her hot cup pies at Neomonde's in Raleigh. Her pies are also found in the freezers at For Your Convenience.

Why ABC Pies? Growing up in the South and observing the enthusiasm that her mother and  grandmother had in preparing their wonderful pies, Pam was determined that her children would have the same experience. She wanted them to have memories of a warm kitchen filled with the aroma of freshly baked homemade pies. Her children Abigail, Bob and Camille were and continue to be her inspiration for baking.

ABC Pie Company's each and every pie is made to order and created from scratch beginning with a 100% homemade and hand rolled crust. Pam uses only the finest and freshest available ingredients.

ABC Pies are as perfect for family gatherings and special occasions. Offering ABC Pies in two sizes, they are unique for corporate gift giving.

Meet Pam Runyan, founder & baker of ABC Pie Company -  On Saturday, October 24 from 11am to 2pm. Pam will be at NOFO in Five Points, Raleigh. She'll offer samples of her delicious, freshly baked Caramel Apple Pies and Pumpkin with Pecan Streusel Pies.

To Have and To Hold -  Once you've spent hours baking your special pie, cupcakes or a cake, it's disheartening to place it in an ordinary plastic container or cardboard box. You want the presentation to be as beautiful as your baked product.

We found boxes worthy of your homemade goodies. The PieBox and CakeBox are so simple, so practical, and so lovely at NOFO in Raleigh. Handcrafted in the USA, these lidded, wooden boxes will protect your sweets in transport and provide the perfect presentation. The PieBox holds a 9" pie. The CakeBox accommodates a 10" round cake or 18 cupcakes in slide-out trays.

When All Else Fails, Bundt! Nothing Bundt Cakes in Cary   

If cupcakes are the baking world's cutesy goody two-shoes, then we've found the cool kid who cut PE to hang out in the parking lot. That would be Bundt Cakes.

A Bundt cake from Nothing Bundt Cakes is a lip-smacking selection of big, fat baked-to-order, bad ass treats.

To find the perfect cake recipe, you first need the perfect ingredients. And that's what the founders, Dena Tripp and Debbie Shwetz were for each other. In 1997, they joined forces, or better yet kitchens, to help make cakes to entertain their friends and family. The cakes they made were delicious, unlike anything anyone had tasted. As a result, their friends and family asked them to entertain more and more.

They quickly realized this side project of theirs could be something more. There was a gap in the world for delicious cakes, readily available, that didn't compromise on their ingredients. Fresh eggs, real butter, and real cream cheese; nothing was too good to achieve perfection. And perfection are those decadent, slowly melting bites, that's known and loved.

Nothing Bundt Cakes was born and it's in the Triangle at 2008 Market Center Dr. in Morrisville/Cary. The cakes are especially rich, flavorful and primed to pull an all-nighter from NC to destinations across the 48 states... staying fresh when it gets to its designated address.

But the best part of this adventure is the true freshness and moistness of these bundt cakes. It's obvious that there's no compromising with any ingredients. These unique and easy on the eyes bundt cakes come in several sizes from  8" or 10" Bundts, to Bundtlets, to Bundtinis and in many flavors. Click here for menu. Deliveries  and pick-up orders are easy to navigate. Click here.

The Beltline Buzz items are selected by our editors.  No one can pay to be featured on
The Beltline Buzz..  That's what advertising is for, and it's always labeled as such.  Selling ourselves (literally) would destroy the legitimacy, integrity, and fun of 
The Beltline Buzz.  Plus, we'd never earn your trust that way.  So we'll never make a dime off your meal at a restaurant nor a penny from the sale of the latest accessory we told you about. 


That said, on occasion, we will send out "Dedicated" e-mails on behalf of sponsors.  You'll recognize them from the subject line: "The Beltline Buzz Dedicated E-mail."  Yes, these are paid for.  And, no, we would never sell our subscriber list to anyone.  Not for any amount of money. 


We hope that you continue to enjoy your Beltline Buzz.  We look forward to delivering it.
