The PieCaken is back, y’all!

It was huge hit last Christmas, so it’s not surprising that Piecaken is making a return this festive season.

If you are unfamiliar with the stuffed dessert creation, it consists of three different types of pie baked into a cake.


Pastry chefs at David Burke Fabrick in New York were the original masterminds behind the creation and developed the recipe as a Thanksgiving treat.

Their piecaken consisted of a spiced pound-cake with layers of pecan pie and pumpkin pie, topped with upside-down apple pie, slathered in cinnamon buttercream and edged in oat streusel.

Many bakers have been inspired by the masterpiece and have since shared their take on the Piecaken on social media. Take a look at some of them below:
