Oh, and I may have exaggerated a tad on Facebook about how my cake actually turned out.
This is not a "how to" post ....this is more like a "how not to" post. I followed the recipe from http://cookingmorningnoonight.blogspot.com/2013/02/boston-cream-pie.html .
I chose this recipe because it was "so unbelievably easy", and I didn't have time for all that homemade nonsense this week. I also underestimated how hard this "pie" or "cake" actually is to make.
I may have also had some trouble because I only had one egg, so I found "egg substitutions" that I used instead of eggs and it made my cake CRUMBLY.
As you will see in the photos, I should have given up at multiple steps throughout this process, but did I ever give up? No! Because I thought it would still taste great, and it did.
As illustrated, I started off great with a perfectly cooked yellow cake #1.
"Smear filling over the top" .......Not quite as fluffy as hers, but I moved on.
"Add Cake #2 to the top"...........well mine came out in crumbles, but I smushed it all back on.
Good as new, right??
"Mix chocolate glaze and pour over cake" ......................Mine was un-pourable so I just "stuck" it on
