Boston Creme Pie

The Most Delicious Boston Creme Pie Cake

There is just something about Boston Creme Pie. I am not sure if it is the combination of the chocolate and creme filling or the ease of making it. Possibly it is the 2 things together. Boston creme “pie” is really a sponge cake. It is named because it turns out as light and fluffy as a sponge. The cake includes two layers filled with a creamy vanilla-flavored custard and topped with rich chocolate icing. Can you say yum? I know I can.
