Best of Boston

1995 Best Pies, Boston Cream

Bentonwood Bakery/Cafe

This classic not-really-a-pie has three parts: cake, custard, and chocolate frosting. Bentonwood’s version is unconventional—individual, cupcake-size BCPs, a circle of cake topped with a creamy custard, all hidden underneath a bittersweet-chocolate glaze, but terrific.
