Cross-section of custom cherpumple that uses a buttermilk pie

The Cherpumple was my very first cake or pie to ever make! I went wild and put cherry pie with strawberry cake mix, buttermilk pie (no one in my family likes pumpkin) with butter pecan cake mix, and apple pie with spice cake mix. Butterscotch pieces are on top the butter cream icing!


Cupcake variation on a cherpumple

No one was thrilled with the Cherpumple idea for our New Year’s get together so I decided to make a pie inside of a cupcake.

I made mini apple pies with a homemade apple mixture and store bought pie crust. I baked those in the mini tins, then I made a french vanilla box cake (with vanilla pudding and sour cream), then poured it over the pies in regular sized cupcake tin (inside cupcake papers).

I baked them and then made a cream cheese frosting to decorate on top. They are interesting. I am surprised they turned out.
