These 5 pie-inspired cakes cover a wide range of flavors from fruit to chocolate and everything in between, so I hope you find you resonate with the best! I always have so much fun creating new cake recipes and it’s even better when I can share the recipe and it becomes one of your favorites too. There’s nothing quite like this cake baker community!
Cake #1: Boston Cream Pie Cake
This Boston Cream Pie Cake has been around for decades and decades! When I made my own version, I didn’t want to stray too far from the original. There’s no need when the cake is already such a classic loved by many. I hope you enjoy this nostalgic yellow cake with vanilla custard and chocolate ganache!
Cake #2: Coconut Key Lime Pie Cake
My Coconut Key Lime Pie Cake is a celebration of several flavors. Before I created this recipe, I was stuck because I wasn’t sure what I wanted in it. Once I realized lime would just be another element to the cake, I was set to bake! This delicious cake mainly showcases coconut, lime, and graham cracker crust that all go so well together.
Cake #3: Turtle Pie Cake
This Turtle Pie Cake has all the best ingredients rolled into one cake. Caramel, chocolate, candied nuts, buttercream. Is your mouth watering yet? This cake is extremely tender and moist, exactly how cake should be. This cake has an impressive height to it, so make sure to check out the original post to see how to achieve that when you make it!
Cake #4: Chocolate Cherry Pie Cake
I invented this Chocolate Cherry Pie Cake by combining two desserts that effortlessly go together: the black forest cake and cherry pie. I’m so glad I did because this cake couldn’t taste more amazing! I use acetate strips to hold the cake together while assembling it since it’s a little harder for it to stick when adding wetter ingredients in between layers. There’s also a secret to the bottom cake layer, so make sure to check that out before baking this cake!
Cake #5: Cherry Cheese Pie Cake
My Cherry Cheese Pie Cake is the perfect combination of sweet, tart, and tang. This recipe is inspired by the incredibly easy no-bake dessert, cherry cheese pie. Thinking of all the ingredients that make up this dessert, I knew they would taste delicious baked as a cake. This cake also features my buttercream frosting, so you can never go wrong there!
