When I posted the other day about making Boston Cream Pie on both my blog and on facebook, I received some very good guesses.
One friend guessed that I might have watched Throw Down with Bobby Flay the night before and been inspired.
Another wondered if we're learning about Boston in homeschool.
And another wondered if we're visiting Boston sometime soon.
However, it was my sister the artist who actually hit the nail on the head with "because it's really a cake and you studied Wayne Thiebaud's Cakes."
It's true. I've been staring at these masterpieces on my refrigerator door for the last week and I just couldn't get that Boston Cream Pie out of my mind. Did you know that Boston Cream Pie is actually a cake? I had actually forgotten until were playing the National Gallery of Art's Frosted Fractions game about Thiebaud's Cakes. From that point on and seeing the lemony yellow top of Thiebaud's version everyday, I HAD to have one.
What about you? Do you like Boston Cream Pie? It's been a big hit around here.
