How about some cake for Thanksgiving? How about a slice of pumple? Pumpkin  pie inside of chocolate cake and apple pie inside of vanilla cake all in one slice of cake. Sounds confusing but they actually bake two different pies into a two layer cake. Since Flying Monkey pioneered this concept people have taken it even farther to a Cherpumple, which is cherry pie, pumpkin pie, and apple pie, baked into a three layer cake. So Flying Monkey's Pumple is alittle outdated but still crazy. At $8 a slice and 2000 calories this is some serious dessert. Located in Reading Terminal Market, which is just an amazing place to visit and eat, Flying Monkey has been pumping out all sorts of desserts. They are especially known for their whoopie pies besides their pumple cake. I was actually very disappointed with this dessert. The icing they use is some kind of hard stuff to help support the 4 layers.  My wife and I made a Cherpumple a few years ago which was much better. I wouldn't even bother getting this cake just go straight to Dinic's and get a roast pork sandwich and then after a whoopie pie.
