Portal – The Cake is a Pie!

Happy belated Pi(e) day, everyone!

Today’s post is more of an intro. Since my weekend was filled with hours upon hours of baking (this is how dedicated I am to you folks), it is a little late. So Instructables currently has not one, but THREE contests going on: The Pi Day Challenge, Gaming, and Deceptive Desserts, and mama needs a new camera. So to fit the challenge, I’ve decided to start cooking with Portals…

So I know, this cake looks like an innocent, yet decadent dark chocolate cake. Cut into the ganache frosting and oh look, it’s yellow cake. Not quite what you expected, but nothing huge.

But wait, cut even further and inside those spongy pound cake layers is a CHERRY PIE!

I’m not finished yet. When you finally taste that bite of victory, you’ll find it’s lemon flavored! Why? Because when life gives The Gluttonous Geek lemons, she re-engineers them and burns life’s house down with CHOCOLATE, CHERRY AND LEMON CAKE-PIE GRENADES!

It’s delicious. It’s moist. It was a triumph. I’m making a note here: HUGE SUCCESS!
