For his birthday celebration, S. asked her father which treat he preferred: Boston cream pie, German chocolate cake or cream puffs. It's nice to have a choice, don't you agree? The thing is, she was offering to make the confection, not purchase it from a store. Although I was hoping for German chocolate cake (because there aren't enough dishes that use coconut), he chose Boston cream pie...it was delicious! Even if you know how to cook, a nicely illustrated cookbook is a delight for the senses.
