I met the woman who commissioned me at a party a couple months ago, and she asked if I’d be willing to make her a pie for her birthday. I was thrilled at the opportunity and agreed immediately. She then told me all about the wonderful pie she wanted.
It’s called the “Fat Elvis Pie” and she saw it on the Food Network. It consists of a pretzel-peanut-graham cracker crust, a chocolate pudding-type layer, a layer of bananas and a peanut butter cream pie topping. It sounded amazing! And I had never really attempted a pie like this before, so I was ready for the challenge.
I did a lot of research: watched clips from the show, looked up recipes for all the components (I couldn’t find a single recipe for the whole pie, so I had to take 3 different ones!), looked at pictures and went to the website of the bakery that originally made the pie – I wanted to make sure I got this at least somewhat right. I wanted everything to be homemade and wasn’t going to cut any corners! Since I couldn’t find an exact recipe, I’m calling this pie my own, except, I decided to call my pie the “Slightly Overweight Royalty Pie”.
