Tip #1

If you’re not familiar with this East Coast dessert, you might think you were getting a cream pie. Actually, this sweet treat, is layered sponge cake with custard filling and then topped with a chocolate glaze. We gave it a slightly updated flavor and made the cake chocolate and used pudding to simplify the custard filling. Vanilla or French vanilla pudding can also be used for the filling if you can’t find white chocolate pudding. Whether traditional or updated, it’s a favorite.
