This month the Avid Bakers are baking Boston Cream Pie! We are using the King Arthur Flour site as our reference. Boston Cream Pie is not a pie at all, it is a lovely spongecake with pastry cream in the center and a rich chocolate ganache on top. Whats not to like about that! I really wanted to make cupcakes and I gave it my all and they taste really good however, I should have not used cupcake papers because the cake sticks to it and it is almost impossible to get off! Leaves a big chocolate pastry cream mess...but a good chocolate pastry cream mess. Haha! Oh well, I know now. You learn the hard way....right?
Please take a look at what the other bakers did here.
