Boston Cream Pie Day is observed annually on October 23.
Boston Cream Pie is a chocolate frosted, custard filled cake that is loved by millions.
In 1856, at Boston’s Parker House Hotel, Armenian-French chef M. Sanzian created this pudding and cake combination which comprises two layers of sponge cake filled with vanilla flavoured custard or creme patisserie. The cake is then topped with a chocolate glaze, such as a ganache or sometimes icing sugar (powdered sugar) and a cherry.
In 1996, Massachusetts declared the Boston Cream Pie as their official dessert.
