So I have to be honest. The only Boston Cream Pie I have had before was out of a Yoplait container haha, but it just happens to be my favorite flavor! Well, I know this is a cake and not the real Boston Cream Pie, but I love it anyway! It was delicious!
Anyway, I have decided that from now on I am going to increase the photos and decrease the talking so here you go...
Right away I got the feeling that the cupcake idea wasn't going to work out so well....
I had originally planned to fill the cupcakes with the cream and top them with the chocolate glaze but after seeing them I wasn't too sure how that would work out.
New Plan! Mini Cakes!
Pouring the glaze... I went a bit Glaze Crazy!
I made all different sizes... 4 layer, 3 layer and sandwich size
I know it's hard to tell but each layer has an inner cream center while the chocolate cream outer circle.
You can see the cream center a bit better once you get inside but I just could not get the white cream to photograph well against the white cake.
I know they are messy and that they aren't the prettiest cakes in the world but they do taste good!
I didn't want to give up on the cupcake idea completely so I made to following my original plan.
And they came out better then I had thought they would.
Once the wrapper was peeled away they started to look kind of cute but they left behind a VERY messy cupcake wrapper.
There is the cream filling, once again there is the regular pastry cream in there as well you just can't see it yet.
I had a lot of variations haha
Thank you Brooke for picking this wonderful recipe!
