Boston Cream Pie

I never met a CREAM PIE i didn't like.. but this one was made for MY MAIN SLICE OF PIE my hubby's birthday.
I was rather proud of myself...all made from scratch. So I'm blogging about the things that made this cake so good. I tested a fewt things to see what the outcome would be. I will say that I really love vanilla beans.. you know, the ones in the pod that you scrape the tiny beans out of that impart delicious flavor? If you've never witnessed.. it's a fun indulgence. Secondly I bought cake flour (specificly Soft as Silk brand) I noticed a difference for sure. It was the same texture as a box mix... more light and crumbly. The ganache on top was thick and rich with the help of some good chocolate and cream. **seriously I need a personal trainer...

I love trying new things and testing it to see if it's all it's cracked up to be. YES~ I think BOSTON will forever hold a place in my heart in more ways than one.
