Pie Social

Amanda Sizemore and Corianne Nelson of Treehouse Bakery: Pie Social Celebrity Bakers 2013

Forks up, Phoenix! Chow Bella and Roosevelt Row present the fourth annual Pie Social Saturday, November 16, from 2 to 5 p.m. at the "What Should Go Here" Pop Up Park at Second and Roosevelt streets. We've got an all-star lineup of bakers making pies for you to taste, and from now till Pie Social, we'll introduce them to you, one by one.

Today is two by two, actually: Amanda Sizemore and Corianne Nelson of Treehouse Bakery

Sisters who bake together stay together, and Amanda Sizemore and Corianne Nelson of Treehouse Bakery are living proof of that. Though their bakery specializes in vegan cupcakes, neither one of the women in this sibling baking team is a vegan. However, they do plan on applying their animal-product-free baking skills to their pie entries at this year's Pie Social. While vegan baking may evoke an image of dry, flavorless health food, Nelson assured us that she doesn't try to make her baked good healthy -- just delicious. Although they haven't yet decided what they're going to make (and said they probably won't until it's "down to the wire"), we're sure that focus on tastiness will make them fierce competitors.
