I couldn't stop thinking about Boston Cream Pie. I have not had a piece for over a year and yet it suddenly became something that I "had" to have.
I've been helping a friend of mine, who owns a cupcake shop, come up with new recipes. I've been baking daily so, I wasn't in the mood to bake today.
But, that wasn't going to stop me. I made a quick stop at Marie Calenders and bought one. They have WONDERFUL Boston Cream Pies.
It starts out with a crust, then topped with a yummy pastry cream. On top of that is a layer of golden yellow cake and another layer of pastry cream. One more layer of cake and then topped with chocolate and some rich whipped cream. Sprinkled with a few chocolate bits and you are ready.
Ready for what, you ask? Well, for a burst of flavor that is like a party taking place in your mouth!
I think this would make a great flavor for a cupcake. Don't you? I think I would leave out the crust so it would be a Boston Cream Cupcake and not a Boston Cream Pie.
