30th Birthday Cherpumple
Cherpumple Test Kitchen creation, submitted by Lindsay
I switched it up a little to make, what I think, are better flavor combinations.
The bottom layer is an apple pie inside a yellow cake.
The middle layer is a cherry pie inside a chocolate cake.
The top layer is a pumpkin pie inside a spice cake.
Frosting is a brown sugar simple syrup whipped into egg whites, cream of tartar, vanilla extract to make a really light, almost whipped cream like texture.
No mixes. Everything from scratch except I did buy canned cherries and canned pumpkin (not pumpkin pie or cherry pie filling, just the fruit).
I made this for my boyfriend’s 30th birthday. It’s all he requested. Took 2 days. This is the very definition of a labor of love. But he is sweet enough to deserve it.
