October 23 annually celebrates a chocolate frosted, custard filled cake that is loved by millions across the country, it is National Boston Cream Pie Day.
Even though called a pie, Boston Cream Pie is actually a cake.
In 1856, at Boston’s Parker House Hotel, Armenian-French chef M. Sanzian created this pudding and cake combination which comprises two layers of sponge cake filled with vanilla flavored custard or creme patissiere. The cake is then topped with a chocolate glaze, such as a ganache or sometimes powdered sugar and a cherry.
In 1996, Massachusetts declared the Boston Cream Pie as their official dessert.
