Sweetie Pie: CakeSpy Loves High 5 Pie and a Butter Love T Shirt Giveaway

Guess what, sweeties?

At long last, High 5 Pie has opened its retail operation in Seattle, on 12th and Madison. Which, not that you asked, but is right along my usual route from home to the store each day. You know what that means: CakeSpy's gonna be high on pie forever!

Now, I was pretty primed to love this bakery. After all, I've been a big fan of their pies (previously primarily found at owner Dani Cone's Fuel Coffee locations) for a long time.

Aaaand (full disclosure) I was a consultant for some recipes on their menu, which has expanded with the new retail operation (fun game: to to the bakery, and guess which flavors I helped develop). High 5!

But upon visiting on New Year's Day with Mr. Spy--our first official bakery visit of the year!--we were even more impressed than we expected.

Here are just a few reasons you should love the new High 5 Pie retail location:


  • The pies are delicious. They come by the slice, in mini pie form, in hand pie ("Flipside") form, or as pie fries! And since they sneak crack into the pie crust, you bet your bottom dollar it's good.
  • They serve them a la mode, if you'd like, with Bluebird Ice Cream.
  • The space itself is beautiful, with a slightly more minty green version of Tiffany blue used all over the place--on the custom espresso machine, on the signage, you name it.
  • But of course, they still maintain some secrets.
  • And they have delicious cookies (and biscuits, and a few other items in addition to pies...including a nice variety of gluten-free and vegan items)
  • ...and they have this t-shirt. BUTTER! LOVE!


Now, here's the thing. I bought this t-shirt, in Unisex Small, but as it turns out, your dear Spy is smaller than small, and it doesn't quite fit.

This is good news for you though, because I'm doing a giveaway! Even if unisex small isn't your size, I'm sure you can find a willing recipient for this BUTTER LOVE tee.

Want to enter? Simply leave a comment below, telling me what flavor of pie you favor best. The giveaway will close on Thursday, January 13, at noon PST; one winner will be chosen at random. US and Canadian entrants only, please.

For immediate pie gratification, visit high5pie.com.

My favorite is pecan pie. Yummy.

My favorite pie...Lemon Meringue, but I've thought a lot about gooseberry.

I favor coconut cream, but I'm also fond of just a plain ol' pumpkin pie made with Libby's can mix. I like it better than a fancy, legit pumpkin pie made with real pumpkin! Guess I'm a Midwest girl at heart.

Ack, I can only pick one??? Then it's gotta be Key Lime Pie. I heart the tangy lime flavors, the graham cracker crust, and the simple dollup of whipped topping to add some sweet to the tangy.

I love raspberry or blueberry pie!

Orrrr, anything with chocolate, haha.
January 6 | Unregistered CommenterNathalie
i love peach pie.
January 6 | Unregistered Commenterellen
I have a soft spot for blueberry pie!
January 6 | Unregistered CommenterCaroline
Easy... apple. Call me old fashioned but nothing beats the combination of apples, cinnamon and pastry! And if the slice is still warm and accompanied by some vanilla ice cream, well that's just piefection!
January 6 | Unregistered CommenterVAN
I'm such a sucker for a good cherry pie. Guess that's what I get for growing up in Michigan :)
January 6 | Unregistered CommenterStephanie
i love love LOVE anything citrus, so it's gotta be key lime or lemon meringue tied for favorite. That said, I do enjoy baking any pie that involves booze, wink wink.
January 6 | Unregistered Commenterkase
staight up apple--no raisins, cranberries or other intruders.
caramel and/or crumble are good varieties on apple--
apple is best!
January 6 | Unregistered CommenterCharlotte
Coconut cream for sure. Uh oh, I feel a pie-baking spree coming on...
January 6 | Unregistered CommenterMelanie
I love black raspberry pie!
January 6 | Unregistered CommenterSara R.
I took a pie making class and the sweet potato custard surprised me by being awesome, but I think lemon and pumpkin take the cake (ha?) as lifelong winners.
January 6 | Unregistered CommenterSarah
Chocolate pie all the way.
January 6 | Unregistered CommenterDani
I'm a pie-nut, and I think my fave would have to be pumpkin, chilled, with whipped cream. YUMMO!
January 6 | Unregistered CommenterTheresa
french silk pie all the way baby!
January 6 | Unregistered CommenterLisa I
It may be a classic, but I love me some blueberry pie. If cobbler counts (it's in the pie family, right?), then blackberry is my fave.
