Boston Creme Pie(cakes)

Its Pat's birthday today! So, a happy birthday shout out to you, Pat.

Unfortunately it is also exam week, but birthdays are always time for celebration, even if you are caught up in other things (like studying...).

Im not very good at baking, but I thought I would try my hand at cupcakes. And lucky for Pat, these little guys turned out great!

Instead of making one cake, we decided to make mini "personal" boston creme pies (aka. cupcakes). I used Martha Stewart's recipe and put a little twist on it. They really did turn out great, and they didn't even take much time at all.

Here is my step by step instructions:

1. Follow Martha's recipe for boston creme pie. In a lined cupcake tray, pour 1/4 cup of batter into each cup and bake at 350 degrees for about 25 minutes or until golden brown around the edges, rotating once.
2. Let cool. Prepare any vanilla pudding recipe, that your little heart desires!
3. When the cupcakes are cooled, use a small spoon and scoop out the center of the cupcake (these little cake crumbles are a tasty treat!). Fill with a dollop of pudding.
4. Frosting: Heat 1/2 cup of heavy whipping cream in a saucepan, until it is boiling. Then, remove from heat and add about 3/4 cup of chocolate chips and stir until melted. If it is too runny, don't be afraid to add more chips! (p.s. This is the best chocolate frosting recipe I have found so far!)
5. Spread frosting over the little pies, and you are good to go! A lovely little treat, that anyone is bound to love.
Happy eating!
