The Best Fruit Mince Pies in Australia

IT’S OFFICIAL!!! Miami Bakehouse have the best Fruit Mince Pies in Australia!


Local West Australian baking business Miami Bakehouse have been awarded THE BEST FRUIT MINCE PIES in Australia from The Official Great Aussie Pie Competition held in Sydney last week.

The legendary West Australian Miami Bakehouse bakery team were ecstatic to learn of the win with great cheers echoing across the Mandurah-based bakery as the national baking awards were broadcast in a Facebook Live feed from Sydney.


Every Christmas, the baking elves at Miami Bakehouse make delicious Fruit Mince Pies, so with the confidence of customer’s raving reviews from the last few years the team decided to enter the festive treats into the inaugural Christmas Pie category at the Official Great Aussie Pie Awards a few weeks ago.


“It all comes down to the ingredients, many hours of taste-testing and baking skills” said Valentina Franceschetti, Head of the Pastry team. “We know we have a special fruit mince recipe and have worked hard to perfect the flavour over many months in 2020”. With delicious sweet and buttery shortbread pastry, filled with a spiced fruit mince recipe of juicy currants and sultanas the judges awarded the Fruit Mince Pies based on their criteria for sensory appeal, smell, taste, texture and aftertaste. The team certainly have their work cut-out over the next few weeks to meet pre-order demand. With Christmas only a few weeks away, the specialist baking team at Miami Bakehouse are even more busy than usual keeping up with the demand for their Fruit Mince Pie gift boxes.


Christmas has truly come early for the Miami Bakehouse team this year, with their new Fruit Mince Cheesecake also bringing home a GOLD award from the 2020 Perth Royal Food Awards held in November. Watch out for the Miami Bakehouse 13 Days of Christmas event starting on the 1st December for the chance to win one of these award-winning treats.




If the chaos of 2020 has taught us anything, it’s the fact that we love nothing more than freshly baked treats to share with the family. Whether you are a seasoned home-cook with a repertoire of family favourites or a time-poor hopeless Masterchef wannabe, the team at Miami are on-hand to solve the need for a freshly baked pie or family treat.


The growing team at Miami Bakehouse have had an extraordinary year from the lows of border closures and regional lock-downs to the heights of winning yet more accolades for their incredible baking skills. With the tally now at over 900 Baking Industry Awards, it’s going to be an exciting year ahead in 2021.


Mr David Palmer, Co-owner of Miami Bakehouse said ‘We are incredibly proud of our team winning these festive awards. This year has presented many challenges for all of us around the country but with the strong support of every team member, our supportive suppliers and loyal customers we have achieved many great things in our local WA business’.
