Stacy is now in the bakery business but with only one product, kind of like the Cupcake only bakeries. Stacy accidentally created the Pake, Part cake/Part pie, when two pages in a cookbook stuck together. If you think that was the end of it, it wasn't. First she had to contend with a business partner played by Kim Kardashian who ran off with her start up money. Then, a patent troll looking for profits from the Pakery, took her to court. Poor Stacy, of course, forgot to send in the papers even though her roommate is a lawyer. But Stacy proved that she invented the Pake in a courtroom bake-off (Episode 12, Season 4). The 'pretender's' Pake imploded. His baking skills were way too deficient--and, of course, he didn't create the Pake.
O.K., so why am I bringing this up? Well in my Retro Research, I came across a recipe for Funny Cake. It's a Swans Down recipe and advertisement from September 21, 1953. "It's a cake and a pie... and it's 'wonderful good'!" Sorry, Stacy, but Swans Down already offered the world the recipe for this Pennsylvania Dutch treat. How come Jane didn't find this ad in researching your claim?
So here's the Swans Down Ad and Retro Recipe. Watch out, Drop Dead Diva, this Funny Cake is a cake baked in a pie shell. The sauce goes on the top and ends up in a layer right at the very bottom of the cake. And, there are three variations for the sauce--Butterscotch Sauce, Chocolate Sauce, and Orange Sauce. It's a cake in a pie. It's a Pake! Here's the Recipe!
