Food Jealousy?

Is it wrong that I'm feeling protective and jealous of a food idea? A year and a half ago I posted my first food porn about mini cup-pies. And now someone else has created a beautiful website and contest on just that subject and it rocks.

I know that I can't be the first person to miniaturize a pie in a cupcake pan. And I won't be the last. But I can't help but feel like, "Hey, that was my idea!".

Silly, I know! The beautiful thing about cup-pies is that they are easy and less intimidating than big pie crusts and EVERYONE should make them!

So to channel my weird idea-hogging feelings into something positive, I think I might enter the contest! Here are my past cup-pie endeavors. I might just use one of these ideas...or maybe come up with a new pie altogether.

Good for you to channel it positively and I hope you win. Your earlier PPK threads all look like they've got what it takes to conquer all!

Good luck! I checked out your links to your mini pies, and they all sound so good!

They had cup-pies on a recent episode of Pushing Daisies.

(Since it revolves around a pie maker )

Mmm, so hungry for pie now.

when you said cup-pies I assumed you meant little tartlets, but covered pies are way cooler. very very very cute. :O

So cute and inventive! I suppose it would be pushing it to attempt mini-cup-pies in mini-muffin tins? The potential explosion may be minor and they could be appetizer-like, but it might be too much effort. Still, it would be neat to see if they worked!
