And so it began - piecaken. You've heard of turducken, right? (a duck inside of a chicken inside of a turkey), same idea - just in dessert mode (pie inside of a cake) there are no instructions for this kind of thing so I just did what I thought would work. And learned some VERY important things for the next time (I still haven't decided if there will BE a next time). The idea is when you cut into it you get both cake and pie.
What did I do wrong? Chose too gooey of a pie (apple definitely for the next one - or chocolate pie), chose too small of a cake pan (going for the BIG springform pan the next time), and used too much cake batter (bubbled over and made a mess on the bottom of my oven). So - lots of changes the next time - but here is what it looked like:
|blueberry pie made the night before|
|first layer of cake dough|
|pie removed from the pie pan and placed on top of the layer of cake dough|
|batter poured to cover pie|
|out of the oven - yes, it sunk|
|cream cheese frosting|
