In this video, you’ll see how to make vanilla pastry cream and ganache for Boston Cream Pie. If you like, you can use boxed yellow cake mix for the cake itself—because, after all, Boston cream pie is just a pastry cream and ganache delivery system! (It's not actually a pie at all!) Chef John also shows you how to build the “pie,” sandwiching the vanilla pastry cream between two rounds of cake and slowly pouring the chocolate ganache over the top so it slides over the edges here and there. Oh yeah, it’s wicked good! Get the recipe for Chef John’s Boston Cream Pie.

Why you you shrug off the cake like it doesn't even matter? "just a pastry cream and ganache delivery system" ... When he shows the sliced cake at the end of the video the cream and ganache look great, but that cake looks dry and boxy. If you are going through the effort to put together something delicious, take an extra few minutes and make a real cake would you please? I give it two stars - one for the cream and one for the chocolate.
