For years I made Boston Cream Pie on Valentine’s Day for my kids. I loved putting little chocolate hearts around the edge of the cake and I loved that it had such a gorgeous old fashioned look with the glaze dripping down and the custard peeping out. It reminded me of those cakes that Yogi Bear stole along with the Pahnicanic baskets.
When I made Boston Cream Pie last week, I started thinking of all the different versions of white cake I’ve made over the years. I use this one in my Boston Cream Pie mainly because it’s a rather plain foil for the cool creamy custard and gorgeous ganache icing.
