Quick & Easy Dessert. Not quite like the real thing, but close & a lot less work. Easy to change fillings and add fruit. Just something easy to throw together for dessert when you are pressed for time.

Made for Spring 2010 PAC This was a really good dessert. I love Boston Cream "Pie", and it is hard to get around here. This was an excellent substitute. I didn't think it would be and I was very pleasently surprised. However, it isn't cheap to make, the small Sarah Lee frozen Pound Cake was $4.50. Nontheless, it uses ingredients that you could keep on hand and have Boston Cream Pie/Cake anytime you want. That is priceless to me.
