Last week, our sister site Lemondrop.com wrote about the Pumpple Cake: half cake, half pie and all calories. The Pumpple, created by the Flying Monkey Patisserie, in Philadelphia, consists of apple and pumpkin pies baked inside vanilla and chocolate cakes covered, no, obliterated, with vanilla buttercream. It just so happens I was in the area this weekend, and picked up a Pumpple to bring back to AOL Headquarters.
Having made the trip back to New York in one piece, the cake was ready for the food team to dig in. By 10:00 a.m. we were slicing into this masterpiece. For a moment we all just stood there in awe, thinking, How did anyone even come up with this idea?
Eating a cake this large and indulgent doesn't come without repercussions. Here come the heartbreaking numbers: The Pumpple weighs 15 pounds and measures more than a foot tall. And make sure you have a crowd to share this cake with, because each slice packs 1,800 calories. No, that is not a typo.
