To take your big 4th of July blowout to the next level, I’ve created a red, white and blue summer version of The Cherpumple.
The Cherpumple, a three layer cake, each with a pie baked into it (CHERry, PUMkpkin, and appLE), is an original recipe from the Charles Phoenix Test Kitchen and the most talked about dessert to come along in years.
The Latest Sweet Mess From The Charles Phoenix Test Kitchen Is Just In Time For Easter.
This Easter party agitator is a 4-layer, pastel-colored, rainbow cake sprinkled with tequila, filled with Peeps and smashed bits of chocolate Easter bunny. Then, it’s frosted and filled with chocolate fudge frosting, inside and out, and finished with foil wrapped chocolate eggs, malted milk ball eggs, jelly beans and skewered Peeps!
Dreamy Dessert Deliciousness In A Cheesecake Kinda Way
I’ve baked pies in cakes, candy in cakes, Cheese Wiz and even Spam, experimenting in the Charles Phoenix Test Kitchen, so it’s high time I cross pollinate cookies and cake. I’m talking supermarket superstar cookies - Oreos, Nutter Butters, Chips Ahoy, Fudge Stripes and Circus Animals, of course. But before they meet up with the batter, they’re soaked overnight in half & half. Go ahead and use cream if you want to. I would’ve, but I didn’t want to kill you!
Cherpumple is an original recipe from the Charles Phoenix Test Kitchen, and the most talked about new dessert to come along in years.
It’s a three-layer cake with a pie stuffed in each layer. YUM! Cherpumple is short for CHERry, PUMpkin and apPLE pie. The apple pie is baked in spice cake, the pumpkin in yellow and the cherry in white. I DARE YOU TO TRY IT AT HOME!
