Boston Cream Pie

The other day I made an attempt at making eclairs. They did not turn out very well and I ended up with a lot of the creme filling. I didn't want that to go to waste, so I made a Boston Cream Pie /cake.

Boston Cream Pie

1 Yellow Cake Mix
Cream Filling
Chocolate Ganache/chocolate frosting

Cream Filling
1 4 oz Vanilla pudding mix
2 cups cold milk
1/2 c heavy whipping cream 
1/4 c powdered sugar
--Combing pudding mix and milk. Beat whipping cream and add to the pudding along with the powdered sugar.

Make yellow cake as directed on the box in 2 8 or 9 inch round pans. I let mine cool and then wrapped and froze them for a few hours. Trim off curve from the cake you put on the bottom, top with cream filling (you may have leftovers), top with the other cake and frost only the top with chocolate ganache or frosting. I accidently frosted all the sides but it was still delicious!
