The turducken of cakes

What does this look like to you? A cake, right?

This, my friends, is the turducken of cakes. "The Pumpple cake. Apple and pumpkin pies are baked inside layers of chocolate and vanilla cake! Vanilla buttercream holds the whole thing together." Here's another shot:

This was brought to my attention, I'll note, by a sober-minded, well-respected economist at a Washington think tank.

That looks and sounds like the most delicious thing I've ever heard of. On the other hand, I think I gained five pounds and got three cavities just looking at the picture.

@MosBen: recall (perhaps it was a hit before your mother was born) the George Harrison song Savoy Truffle (from the White Album), which basically consists of the contents list of a box of sweets that he and Eric Clapton were devouring. Clapton needed extensive dental work at the time, as I understand it.

Cream tangerine and montelimar,
A ginger sling with a pineapple heart,
A coffee dessert, yes you know it's good news,
But you'll have to have them all pulled out after the savoy truffle.
Cool cherry cream and nice apple tart,
I feel your taste all the time we're apart,
Coconut fudge really blows down those blues,
But you'll have to have them all pulled out after the savoy truffle.
You might not feel it now
But when the pain cuts through you're going to know, and how.
The sweat is gonna fill your head,
When it becomes too much you'll shout aloud,
But you'll have to have them all pulled out after the savoy truffle.
Know that what you eat you are,
But what is sweet now turns so sour.
We all know ob-la-di-bla-da,
But can you show me where you are.
Cream tangerine and montelimar,
A ginger sling with a pineapple heart,
A coffee dessert, yes you know it's good news,
But you'll have to have them all pulled out after the savoy truffle.
Yes you'll have to have them all pulled out after the savoy truffle.
