a BUTCHER from Belper was surely wondering if a customer was telling ‘porkies’ when they handed him a strange request.

For Tim Howarth, of Jerry Howarth Pork Butchers on King Street and High Street, was asked if he could make a tiered pork pie ‘cake’ for a wedding in Doncaster.

The three-tier pie, which was separated by glasses of confetti, weighed 8kg and made up the centre-piece of the happy couple’s evening buffet. They had a traditional cake for the reception during the day.

Tim admitted he was worried at first, but now says he would love to make another one.

He said: “They were chuffed to bits with it. It’s the first one I’ve made, but I really enjoyed it!”

Ironically, Tim’s daughter Rachael, 19, is well on her way to a career making and decorating wedding and birthday cakes and is already taking regular orders.
