Boston Cream Pie plop

boston cream pieBoston Cream Pie, like this one from Betty Crocker, is a classic dessert that balances layers of sweet, yummy deliciousness while also looking almost too good to eat.

Something tells me CraftFail reader Pepper’s pie won’t have that last problem.

Well, I spy a piece or two missing, so at least we can say that its appearance – either too pretty or too putrid – didn’t interfere with anyone’s willingness to test a slice!

    Boston Creme pie is the one cake I can actually make without ruining it, if you don’t count the first practice cake. My trouble Is getting the cake out of the pan in one piece, but the filling and ganache I can make from scratch in one try. Every other cake I have tried to make fails.
