Has anyone on this site tasted any of these cakes? What are your opinions on these cakes and how do you think they would taste? I have never heard of them before. Don't know if I would like all those flavors mixed into one thing.

I understand your feeling OP.  This is a perfect pictorial example of the truth of the adage:

 

Just because one CAN do something does NOT mean one MUST or even SHOULD do it.

 

I think you filed it in exactly the right forum.

That's a bit different - at first I thought the cherry pie was ham...not too sure why, but it still doesn't look too pleasant...makes me a little curious though...

AIt just doesn't sound very appetizing.

"Would you like a slice of cherpumple?"

"Why no sir I would not like to eat an oompa loompa for dessert!"

The thing you're missing is that this type of cake/pie was created by Charles Phoenix.  He is the most creative, happiest, silliest man I've ever met, and if you ever get a chance to meet him in person, or get to see one of his slide shows, you'll think so too. 

cazza1 Posted 11 Dec 2012 , 12:45pm

Not sure I understand the sense in this.  Wouldn't the pasty go soggy?  Looks like a waste of both good pies and good cake to me.

Umm, besides the other obvious problems of the flavor combos, texture combos, and giant mess if it went wrong (wronger?) either your piece on a plate would be too much to eat (if edible) or it would be too skinny to serve. That's a big @$$ caketype thing!

tykesmommy Posted 22 Dec 2012 , 4:14am

AIt looks weird and oozy, but at the same time, I wouldn't mind trying it. Hopefully it tastes better than it looks... *shudder*

There is no such thing as perfect a parent. You always have new things to learn, to improve skills, and new options to try. Because you want the best for your children, a quick tip should always be welcome. Useful tips that are in this article can help you manage your daily life is one of the problems of parents so that you can start to be a better parent. Toddlers should not be given any type of soda. Do not give your child drinks that provide nutrients and vitamins. Milk, water and juice are excellent examples of drinks that are good to offer your child. When you teach your children to focus on the communication of the right way of doing things rather than focus on the undesirable behaviors. Constantly by imposing restrictions on your children may lead to wild and rebellious. By focusing on the things that they are allowed to do so, give you the child the meaning where they have a lot of freedom and control. When you are dealing with a difficult child behaviour, always use positive reinforcement. Do not forget that some children may have emotional problems and are unable to communicate their thoughts and feelings. One of the best ways to help is to show them how they can express themselves properly.

I'm sorry, but have I missed something? I thought this was about cherplumpiwhatever?

A pre-baked shop bought pie encased in a box mixed cake, mmmmmmm deeeeelicious.

SwtCanuck Posted 28 Dec 2012 , 12:21am

So for Christmas this year I had set in my mind to make a Cherpumple. I made my own pies. Layers the cherry in chocolate cake, the apple in vanilla cake and the pumpkin in spice cake. Besides a few hiccupcs of too much batter in the first cake and a longer baking time, it turned out pretty good. It was huge and even with very thin slices no one was able to finish a slice but everyone loved it! If I were to ever make this again I would use tarts and make a smaller version.

SwtCanuck,

The Cherpumple you made looks pretty cool. I heard about those a few months ago, but was afraid to try it, thinking I might waste a lot of ingredients if no one would eat it. I like your idea of using tarts and making a smaller version. I think I might just try it sometime. It just seems fun!

inspireddecorator Posted 6 Jan 2013 , 4:24am

AI've made an apple in a white cake. Kids thought it was good. I made my apple pie the day prior and let it sit in the fridge overnight. I put batter on the bottom of the pan and around the sides only, I found the batter does not bake on top, so I leave it off.

Not as disturbing as the "piñata cake" icon_confused.gif

hbquikcomjamesl Posted 12 Apr 2013 , 10:54pm

Perfect dessert if the main course is a turducken.

I don't want to eat anything that starts with "turd".

Not a very appetizing name, I'll agree. And I don't find it especially appetizing even knowing that a Turducken is a boneless chicken stuffed inside a boneless duck, stuffed inside a turkey.

auntginn Posted 15 Apr 2013 , 5:01pm

Why not just use those pies flavors for a filling.  Like Cherry filling, pumpkin creamcheese filling, etc.  I don't think it would be appealing to guest as a cake otherwise.
