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.
