Boston Cream Pie and Happy Easter


It's actually a cake with two treasures, it has vanilla pudding inside it and chocolate glaze over it; what more do I need? Just gobble up... Finally spring has sprung and we are enjoying unbelievably beautiful and sunny weather for the last couple of weeks. Hope the weather is not going to trick us by acting anymore weird. As spring arrives, first thing that comes to my mind is it's time to barbecue. We love to BBQ and we really don't miss any great sunny day that's good for BBQ. Yesterday, we had our first BBQ of this year with our good friends. Even though it was slightly chili in the evening, we had a fun time and we grilled Tandoori chicken, Scallops, Shrimp, Asparagus and of course Corn on the cob. Everything was delicious. To end the fun filled BBQ I had made Boston Cream pie and my friend had made Chocolate cake with chocolate ganache. Two of these delicious desserts gave the BBQ night a sweet ending. Every time when I feel like having cake, I end up making my Dates cake. So
