Bostini Cream Pie for my first DB challenge

Finally the 29th came!! I just couln'd wait to post my first Daring Bakers challenge!!
But... how i'm forgetfull... i almost lost the challend (in Brazil is 27 to midnight)


The challenged was hosted by Mary at Alpineberry, and her choice was a Bostini Cream Pie, a variation of Boston Cream Pie.

When i started making the recipe i planed on taking step by step pictures, but... as i'm not a lucky girl the camera was without battery, i maneged to take some pics on my brothes machine, but lets just say i don't really know where the camera is and i also don't know where he is, soooo i'll post the ones i maneged to take after charging the battery.

To assemble it i put a very tiny slice of the cake under, put the custard, another slice of cake and finished with perfect chocolate. I liked the cake and the chocolate glaze but the custard wasn't really great.

cake+custard+cake again














The Bostini!!


Thanks Mary for a great challenge, my pictures aren't the best so i sinceirly recomend you visit the other lovey bakeres to see the diferencs. And the recipe can be found at Mary's blog.

I'm jealous that you got your custard to unmold. And I'm with you...I was SO excited to post this first challenge, I ended up changing my time stamp a bit earlier that it really was here. :-)
