We're counting down the days to Pie Social 2011 -- 2 p.m. on Saturday, November 12 at 408 E. Roosevelt in downtown Phoenix. Don't forget, you can get in on the action yourself. Here are details for community bakers. And don't forget about our celebrity bakers -- every day we'll introduce you to a different one.
Today: Baked-good guru Tammie Coe of Tammie Coe Cakes. Coe baked her first wedding cake at the age of 12 in her mother's kitchen and traces her interest in baking to her grandmother, who taught her to bake form scratch. With a degree in Pastry and Baking Arts and a husband who's one of the youngest Master Bakers in the country, Tammie's dream has since grown into a thriving business with locations in Arcadia and Roosevelt Row.
Pie is the new Switzerland because no one fights it.
The hardest part about baking a pie is not eating it!
Get the rest of Tammie's answers after the jump.
The Phoenix food scene needs more desserts and less people on diets.
