  1. I am definitely going to try making these! I think this recipe is really unique. I've never had Boston Cream before, despite it being pretty popular in the Kansai Prefecture in Japan (I'm from the Kantō Prefecture or Tokyo, a major city in the Prefecture. Just so there is no confusion about what we are talking about!) but I would like to make these! But maybe I should try Boston Cream Pie before I make the cupcakes just to be sure I like it :)
