My momma’s best-on-the-planet Rum Cake was always the most requested dessert for Mother’s day, and, yes, we made her bake it (before you get mad, please know that you can’t pull an Italian mom out of the kitchen, ever, even on Mother’s Day).
But this year, we decided to let her off the hook and make something she’d never had before. For some reason, the beautiful Boston Cream Pie with two layers of cake, pastry cream, and chocolate glaze dripping over the top and down the sides, was never included in any of our special occasion menus. We’re making up for that now! Happy Mother’s Day, beautiful moms!
