I was gonna submit this exact recipe, as Im a lover of Boston Cream Pie, but am pretty much fed up with the expensive, from scratch recipes out there. Hey, dessert is an indulgence, so who cares if you have a little transfat in your frosting via a can of whipped frosting once in awhile? I use the Duncan Hines Yellow cake, jell-o instant vanilla pudding, and the Duncan Hines whipped frosting. The only recommendations I have are that this cake works much better as a single layer cake, that you split in half and fill. It's just the right proportions between cake, custard and frosting. Also, rather than microwave, I prefer to frost the entire cake, tops and sides so that the cake is sealed and won't dry out. I keep it in the fridge on a plate, underneath and upside down pyrex bowl, and as I take a slice, I cover the exposed cake with a verticle piece of wax paper covering the cake, and not the frosting.
