Boston Cream Pie Cake [Club: BAKED]

So, I am a day late posting the September 1 Club: BAKED choice, but better late than never! I actually made it on Sunday. This time Brooke from Brooke’s Bountiful Kitchen picked Boston Cream Pie Cake. I didn’t follow the recipe exactly. I decided to make a 6-layer cake since I had three 6 in. round pans. I had just made my first 3-layer cake the other day (which I will post about that soon – with the start of school and trying to get work done I am so far behind!) and so I thought why not try a 6-layer one. I must say I have never been a big Boston Cream Pie fan so I guess I enjoyed making this cake more than I enjoyed eating it… As you can see it was a little bit lopsided, but not too bad for a 6-layer cake. At least it didn’t topple over! You can see all the other Club BAKED posts for this cake here.

  1. I love that you made a SIX layer cake! That is just plain awesome.

  2. I can’t believe you went for 6 layers!! I didn’t even want to deal with 4. Great job!

  3. Thanks Joan! I decided I really like using 6 in pans and making cakes that are a little taller. This one was a little wonky since I cut my three layers into 6, but it held up.

  4. Wow! 6 layers! That is a tower of pastry cream and chocolate goodness! Yummm.

  5. Thanks Melissa! 6 layers wasn’t too bad… I was worried it would topple and it almost did when I cut the first piece.

  6. Kirsten – It surely was a tower (almost a collapsed one)!

  7. How fun! I love layer cakes. Yours looks great with all that delicious pastry cream dripping out the sides and coated in beautiful chocolate glaze. Good stuff!

  8. Gloria, I have decided that I love layer cakes too! They are a lot of work, but they are also pretty fun and look great!

  9. what a great interpretation! how fun! looks delish
