Pake: (noun)"A delicious pie baked inside of a delicious cake resulting in a delicious, decadent over the top dessert."
Every year for my birthday, my husband makes me a birthday cake. He's been very kind not to laugh at my odd requests (like when I asked him to make a cake shaped like a cat head :P) and this year was no different. After watching an episode of Drop Dead Diva I got the idea of requesting a "pake". Everyone who knows me knows that I LOVE food...especially dessert. A pake to me would be the perfect bonding between two traditional desserts. It's the best of both worlds - excellent for those that are indecisive! We originally wanted to do a black forest pake (chocolate cake with a cherry pie), but unfortunately, had to settle with chocolate cake and a blueberry pie. Due to time constraints, we decided to construct the pake with Betty Crocker chocolate cake batter and a pre-made pie from Walmart. The pake was topped off with home-made whipped cream and Betty Crocker chocolate frosting. Below are photos to document the construction of the pake!
4) Pie has been successfully inserted. Kind of looks like a whoppie pie!
5) All done! We had a few problems icing the exterior. Not the cleanest looking cake, but it's a tasty one.
6) ...and the best part! Eating it! :D
