One of the greatest dilemmas during the holiday season is figuring out what kind of dessert to serve. Sure, you could go all out and make (or buy) every type of pie, cake, and festive treat to please everyone in your family — or you could take a cue from a new food craze.
“Piecaken” combines four desserts in one: pecan pie, apple pie, pumpkin pie, and cake. The jackpot of sweets has been around for a while, according to The New York Times, but the mainstream hype around the dessert has just begun thanks to a few popular bakers and pastry chefs.
The dessert concept can be expressed in as many ways as there are cravings. For instance, you can combine one pie and one cake to create a simplified version, or you could bake each pie within a cake and then stack them. The possibilities are endless.
What’s more, you can up the flavors with various pie and cake batter combinations according to the season. This fruity variety from Cookies, Cupcakes, and Cardio, features pumpkin pie, apple pie, and cherry pie.
Looks like the Thanksgiving dessert table will be both streamlined and even tastier this year!
