ABC: Boston Cream Pie (Cupcakes)

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.

Next month we will be baking No Knead Chocolate Cherry Pecan Bread.  Sounds yummy!



  1. I love how the pastry cream oozes out like that :o) Next time, you could still use cupcake liners but you might want to spray them with non-stick cooking spray first. The cake won't stick to it. That's what I did for muffins recently.

    1. Thanks for the tip....I sure needed to do that this time around!

  2. Hi Chelly. Looks gorgeous. You could always stick the cupcakes, liners and all, into little ramekins and pretend that's what you wanted to do all along! =)

  3. But those very cupcakes make it look very decadent as well! Look at that oozing filling..yum!

  4. The filling dripping out looks wonderful, makes me want to just gobble it up. Thank you for the wonderful pictures!

  5. Those look SO GOOD. :)

  6. The cupcakes look so nice! What a great idea!
