    Boston Cream Pie.

     Boston Cream Pie is actually a cake made of two layers of sponge cake with vanilla pastry cream sandwiched in between and chocolate on the outside, in this case, chocolate ganache. I haven't found a good explanation to why this is referred to as "pie" but it does originate in Boston, created back in the 19th-century by French Chef M. Sanzian at Boston's Parker House Hotel.
