After my apple pie layered cake recipe I tried to think of more pie/cake possibilities. It seemed like a fun idea to just use pies to create a layered cake, however, pies can be very time consuming to make & with Pi Day just around the corner I didn’t have hours on end (who does?!) to make the pies & then assemble them into a cake. So I turned to trusty Marie Callender’s Frozen Pies that I picked up at my local grocery store (you can order them online here too!) & started to get to work. The entire recipe ended up being way less time consuming than I though which was awesome! Since the pies are no-bake, I just took them out of the freezer stacked one pie on top of another & smothered the sides in frosting. I mean hello food hybrid of the future! An actual cake made out of three delicious pie flavors? Yes please!
The tops of the pies are stunning & far beyond my piping skills so I chose to leave it showing. If you feel like getting fancy, simple pipe a small dollop of caramel sauce around the top of the cake & let it drip down for a ganache effect. As for the pies themselves, I used Marie Callender’s Banana Cream, Chocolate Satin, & Coconut Cream Pies. They have tons of other flavors to choose from as well. They all tasted beyond delicious & I loved the ease of working with them. Since they are frozen pies, they were very easy to assemble & frost. Even if the pie sits in your freezer for a week or so (I highly doubt it will last that long) it still tastes super fresh. This pie layered cake recipe is sure to wow all your friends & even gives you a much needed excuse to celebrate Pi(e) Day!
