Starlet Closet: Cleaning

September is fashion month on Everyday Starlet, so I thought this would be the perfect time to clean out my closet.  The whole month I will be posting fashion related content, but every Tuesday I will be posting closet tips.  I’d like to invite you to follow along with me and by the end of the month we will all have (or be closer to) a perfect Starlet wardrobe.  This week is all about cleaning out your closet.

My home state of Massachusetts was represented by the Boston Cream Pie.  Now Boston Cream Pie is not a pie, it’s a cake…and before you go judging, just remember that New England is buried in snow and ice most of the year so we’re a little cuckoo around these parts.

Typically it’s two white cakes with a custard in between and a chocolate ganache or frosting on top… so I guess you could say it’s more of a sandwich than a pie…. maybe we should call it a Boston Cream Cake Sandwich?  Anyway, PET suggested I make one, so I set off on a quest to make my own version.  (more…)
