Does the sequel ever shape up to the original? Holiday PieLogen attempts to challenge any preconceptions you might have. The makers of the viral food sensation PieCaken introduce Holiday PieLogen, “a toffee pecan pie, an eggnog cheesecake and a chocolate caramel yule log layered together with chocolate buttercream frosting,” according to the website.
The original PieCaken was developed by Zac Young, executive pastry chef for David Burke Group, and Gian Martinez, pastry chef at David Burke Fabrick. With the idea of taking ‘dessert turducken’ to the next level, PieCaken became a viral success, the operation producing 100 PieCakens a day at their peak, according to The New York Times. The PieCaken, for those that don’t know, is, “a pecan pie, a pumpkin pie, and an apple upside-down cake layered together with cinnamon buttercream.”
The PieLogen serves 8-14 people. It is only available for pick-up at the PieCaken shop at 47 West 38th Street, and costs $65. PieCaken diehards can still pick up the “all-in-one holiday dessert” as well, for $49.
