Cake-Pie Hybrids

The Flying Monkey 'Pumpple' Crams Just About Everything into One Dessert

— October 31, 2010 — Lifestyle
Thankfully, it's almost the holiday season; for some, that might just mean justifying a slab of the Flying Monkey 'Pumpple' cake. Actually, the word 'cake' does not do this dessert justice.

Here's why: The Flying Monkey 'Pumpple' is comprised of both a pumpkin pie and an apple pie, between which lies chocolate and vanilla cakes (note the plural). The whole thing is covered in buttercream icing. One slice of this 15-lb. dessert is 1,800 calories. At least your jaw will drop far enough down to fit the foot-tall slice into it.
