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.
