Someone is baking delicious American Pies in Bangkok

The business of making cakes is serious, in particular those cakes and pies we know from our childhood. Nobody made ever a better pie that grandma. In Germany we love apple crumble pie, while I learned that in the US the apples are in the open or covered with a neat grid. Since I am not so much into baking, I am happy that someone else decided to bring finest American Pies to Bangkok.
James Schoepflin is a filmmaker as well as a baker, and the latter is his current profession in Krungthep.

He just opened a shop selling homemade pies. Unfortunately it is not in downtown, but more near the airport in Ladkrabang. And in this area you get free delivery. There is also a website available, with a map and a lot of information, online order included. Check out http://kingofpieland.com/.

For a test I tried the Granny Apple Pie with extra rum, and it was so delicious that it barely lasted long enough to take a picture. Prices are from 75 to 350 baht depending on the size and type of pie. There is a facebook page also available, have a look on https://www.facebook.com/AmericanPies.


Every cakes comes in a neat box, well packed. As the owner told me they started already to deliver pies to certain shops in the Ladkrabang area. I just hope they may find a way to serve more areas, maybe by franchising?
