History of the Christmas PieCaken
The PieCaken started out as a fun dessert to compete with turducken. The turducken is a trio of Thanksgiving meats that rival traditional turkey. Chef Zac Young was working at a restaurant in New York City that was set to serve turducken. Turducken is a chicken inside a duck inside a turkey.
He created a cake and pie dessert that features three desserts in one: pecan pie, pumpkin pie, and spice cake. The Original PieCaken is frosted with cinnamon buttercream and topped with apple pie filling. What was meant to be a limited offering turned into a social media frenzy and bakery business devoted to making one of the world’s most unique desserts.
The winter-themed Christmas PieCaken was created after the Thanksgiving-themed Original PieCaken.
