We made piecaken for Christmas. For those of you who don't know what that is, its a pie baked inside a cake.
So, was it worth it? I personally think it wasn't. I ended up realizing at the last second that my cake tin was too small to fit the giant pie I made and the cake batter so I had to shave off the edges of teh pie which was a big pain and a mess. This caused the pie to leak into the cake.
Maybe if I had owned a bigger cake tin it would have been easier and tasted better, but either way it wasn't worth the effort in my opinion. Honestly I think it would be better just to place some raspberry jam in the middle of the cake and then bake it. Same effect, less mess.
