Grab a fork and pour yourself a cold glass of milk — October 23 is National Boston Cream Pie Day!

This classic American dessert was created back in 1856 by French chef M. Sanzian at Boston's Parker House Hotel. But Boston Cream Pie is not actually a pie. Rather, it's a round sponge cake that is split and filled with a custard or cream filling, and frosted with a chocolate glaze (such as ganache) or topped with confectioner's sugar. The cake is then cut into wedges and served like pie. I have never actually tasted Boston Cream Pie, but it looks delicious!

In the following video segment, you'll visit the kitchen at the famous Parker House Hotel, where Food Network's Bobby Flay gets a demo of how to make Boston Cream Pie. Watch:
