Boston Cream Pie (is not a pie)
I’ve been baking at home now ever since I closed the little bakery that I proudly ran for 7+ years. It took a little while to get things set up to my satisfaction in our compact home kitchen, but I’m satisfied now. In some ways, I think that the size of my home kitchen makes it pretty perfect. For one thing, even at the bakery, we always made the most of every inch of space. Visitors generally marveled at how much we could produce in such a small (that was about 150 square feet?) space. Also, if my home kitchen is small, then, I know I can convince you that baking delicious and beautiful treats does not require a lot of space or a lot of equipment. I can show you what it does take, but first, I thought I’d start with a bit of inspiration.
Perhaps this will inspire you? Boston Cream Pie.
Boston Cream Pie is actually a cake, as you can see. It is made with vanilla cake, custard cream and chocolate ganache icing. None of these three are particularly hard to make and each of them can be made ahead so that on the day you assemble the cake, you actually only have to spend about 15-20 minutes.
