No Fakin’, it’s a Turcaken

Turcaken strata

As many great ideas do, the Turcaken arose from a joke. I think it initially had something to do with Twitter and trying to come up with the cocktail equivalent of a turducken.

All I know is that I wanted a Turcaken for my birthday and got one. The interpretation was left up to Jane, a friend and cake master.

I was not disappointed. The result was yellow cake surrounding cherry pie surrounding Oreos. The exterior remained springy while the inner strata had nearly compressed into a single gooey unit. Sweet and then some.

The only way it could possibly be improved upon would be if it were battered and deep fried.

This morning I awoke to hear about a new cakey creature, the Cherpumple! The hybrids will not be stopped.

  1. It took me looking at this three times (yes, I kept it open in a Firefox tab so I could keep coming back to it) to notice the sprinkles on top.

    Your friends are better than my friends.

  2. Disclaimer: the Cherpumple photos started appearing on the same day as my Turcaken uploads. I think we are psychic friends!

    I plan to explore additional dessert strata (within the entire cake, as opposed to treating each layer as an individual entity) in the near future.

  3. donuts4dinner: I just added in the photo of the whole cake for comparison.

    Janeminty: Yes, I’m thinking you could embed all sorts of edibles within the cake.
