In the tussle of preference between cake versus pie, I come down squarely on the pie side. So why would I celebrate cake day? Simple, you should try a Piecaken. In a nod to a Turducken (where a boneless chicken is stuffed inside a boneless duck and then stuffed inside a boneless turkey), a Piecaken is essential several pies stuffed into a cake shape with icing covering all. Enough sugar in one spot to send me into a diabetic coma! You can find recipes on line or order one pre-made from various sources. Happy Thanksgiving Excess!
