Cup-pake!

The fellow who posts over at Three Ninjas read the post on my famous pake, a cake into which three pies had been baked.   He must have liked the concept, because for his birthday one of his coworkers baked him a pake—actually, cup-pakes, smaller versions that, as he put it, “facilitate workplace sharing”.  Cup-pakes must be even harder to make since one first has to make the mini-pies instead of using regular store-bought pies.

Here’s a cross section of the natal cup-pake, with celebratory birthday cetaceans in the background.

Three Ninjas reports that it was delicious.

    I would love to get that recipe. Looks like a special cake — huh, pake.

    Happy birthday! Not willing to travel to Seattle for a pastry version of a crocoduck, though.

    Oooh. This is like a sweet turducken.

      My thought exactly! Well, my thought was ‘what a perfect dessert for after a dinner of turducken’. Close enough.

    What a lucky dude–I’ve never had celebratory birthday cetaceans!

    I love the birthday whales. (“Thanks for the fish …”)

    Can you not get mini-pies in your stores in the States? They’re quite common in the UK, e.g.

      Thanks for the link. No we can not get them here, or not that I know about.

    Cakes, pies, cupcakes, pakes, cup-pakes – all off limits on a paleo diet 🙁

        But one must beware “…are stuffed, sometimes with a highly seasoned breadcrumb mixture…”

        Even better is a Brazilian restaurant which serves 15 different meats in an all-you-can-eat dinner. I won’t post the commercial link here though.
