Cherpumple is short for CHERry, PUMpkin and apPLE pie – the three pies each baked in a layer of cake. Cherry pie in white cake; a pumpkin pie in yellow cake, and apple pie in spice cake!

For Those You Food Network Watchers I’m A Judge On "Cake Wars: Christmas" This Season Beginning November 9th !!! ...

Host Jonathan Bennett (2nd from right) poses for a photo with, from left, judges Chris Buck, Charles Phoenix and Sherry Yard, as seen on Food Network's Cake Wars, Christmas Special.

For those you Food Network watchers I’m a judge on "Cake Wars: Christmas" this season beginning November 9th! "Cake Wars: Christmas," btw, is a reality-based competition show with eight teams competing for the big prize. Shooting the show was a blast! It took 7 days to film the 6 hour-long episodes. Frankly I was shocked by how smoothly it all ran. My co-judge, pastry chef extraordinaire Sherry Yard, kept us plump, constantly sharing her homemade sweet treats.
