I chose the PieCaken for a special New Years Eve dessert to be served at our family gathering. Everyone loved it. It blends so many wonderful flavors and textures. I had no idea what to expect as it was my first time ordering from FoodyDirect and I was very impressed with their shipping and packaging of the product.

Very unique dessert, but not a five star, especially for the price when you include shipping. It was a nice, sweet pie/cake, but did not blow any of us away.
This wonderful dessert was enjoyed by all the residents who share long term living with my mother. The oos and ahs and delight were as delicious as the tastes in the Piecaken! It is the second year of delivery. This product arrives on time and packed perfectly! I look forward to next year's Piecaken.
I was kinda surprised how delicious this was, I would definitely buy again.
Very delicious! Our whole family enjoyed this!!

Luscious. Decadent. Perfect! The piecaken was exceptionally well packaged and arrived on time in great condition. Bringing it to the table elicited lots of "ooos" and "ahhs." Even people who don't have a sweet tooth were impressed with the various textures and flavors. Personally, my favorite part of the piecaken experience was the frosting! 😊
Our ordering and delivery were superlative. It was worth the cost, and the novelty of knowing our cake flew overnight ftom New York to South Eastern Washington State was an added perk... I think my expectations were unreasonably high...The frosting was supposed to be a cinnamon buttercream, and it was tasty, but tasted light like wbipped cream, and was clumpy, and not smoothe and rich. Tasted synthetic. The crumble layering on the exterior was fantastic. The pecan layer was delicious, but kind of "skinny." Pumpkin was good, and subtle. The spice cake was sadly a bit dry, and it was the thickest layer. The apple and cinnamon topping was good, but seemed kind of over-dense. The cake overall was a bit hard to cut, so saw carefully, but I ate a good-sized slice. My work place loved it, and I was happy to try it, but will not do again. I was disappointed. :-(
The layers separately were delicious, and together struck a balance where none were overpowering the other. You could create a perfect bite out of any combination of layers you put together. Easily one of my favorite fall desserts of all time.
The arrived in perfect condition and on time. The best part was opening the foil packing and seeing the cake...i have never been so thrilled to see such a beautiful cake! Once cut, used as a birtjday cake, the taste was out of this world!! It was perfect in qualiry, moistness and sweetness...a beautifully perfect cake!!

A family favorite. This was the second year in a row to order. I'm never making dessert again for Thanksgiving.
Fort Myers, FL
Amazing! Delicious! A HUGE hit!
Ordered this for Thanksgiving. It was rich and delicious. Even with multiple desserts it was half gone. Was concerned after reading some reviews that it was salty since I do not use salt much but I didn't find it salty at all. Very good, size good.
Winter Springs, FL
The piecaken was delicious!! My whole family could not wait for Thanksgiving! I only let them eat half of it and save the rest for Thanksgiving! Everyone went on and on about how tender the cake 🍰 was and how scrumptious each pie was inside the cake! The icing is absolutely perfect for the crowning glory! Buttercream with cinnamon is the best tasting icing we have ever had! My family can’t wait for the next one to come out!
We received the Piecaken as a gift. It arrived as scheduled, with ice packs that were still frozen. It was delicious and very unique. We loved it!
We were so excited to get this cake for our New Year's Eve gathering. We followed the instructions, took it out of the box, kept it wrapped in plastic and put it in the refrigerator. and kept it cold til two hours before serving. I had 30 people, and two other desserts, and this one got the least attention. It was a bit dry and not nearly as flavorful as I would have expected. Probably eaten fresh, on the day it was baked, it would have been terrific. I would not order it again. Unlike some of your other selections that we have gifted to friends, this one was "one-time-only". Not bad. Just not great! Happy New Year!
Delivery was on time and packed well. The Piecaken was delicious. I don't like the $30 delivery but it is a special shipment.
Harrison Township, MI
This PieCaken was so great that I wish I could give it 10 stars! My guests were anxious to taste it. They were totally satisfied when I finally served it. For any special occasion this will cause a stir! A large family would not need to wait for special occasions. For small families it would be perfect if it came in a smaller size. If you are looking for something new to serve this PieCaken is ideal.
One word-Unbelievable!!! Will definitely re-order.
Honestly, not as fun to eat as it is to serve. The pecan pie layer was the best. The pumpkin layer had no discernible taste, and the cake layer was dry. The frosting also lacked taste and was sort of like eating Crisco. The apples on top were good. If more spice were added to the pumpkin pie and more moisture to the cake (and flavor to the frosting) I would love to try it again. It makes a beautiful presentation, but it's simply not worth the calorie overdose.
I did not care for this at all. The cake was dry, the icing was clumped all over. I left it out for an hour before cutting it and the layers separated because the icing was not holding the layers together. The pumpkin pie and the pecan pie both had good flavor, but overall a lousy presentation. I will not purchase it again.
Drexel Hill, PA
Each layer of this cake was awesome! My only issue was the bottom layer (pecan pie)..when slicing it, that layer fell apart! Still tasted very good but presentation was lacking! Otherwise, I would have rated this 5 stars!
The best dessert ever! Imagine eating all of your favorite desserts in one bite, that's what Piecaken is. Will be a new Holiday tradition.
Had very high expectations for this dessert. I agree with Joan about the pecan layer, it was a bit lacking and the buttercream frosting tasted too salty or buttery. Bought it for work and nobody raved about it. Not sure if a bad batch, but I'd be willing to try again.
I enjoyed my piecaken on Thanksgiving. Some people didn't like it. To each their own. Have a great night.
New York, NY
The concept was fun, the execution was great and not overly sweet, and the crowd loved it. First Thanksgiving I can remember with only one dessert on the table and it more than satisfied.
I'd been touting the arrival and eventual unveiling for this amazing dessert. It surpassed all expectation. It was very very ingenious and delicious. The packaging and arrival was perfect. While dining, leave room for this wonderful dessert!!
Staten Island, NY
Loved this cake! It was amazing to look at and tasted great. Would definitely recommend it!
West Haven, CT
We were terribly disappointed in our great dessert find. Very little peacan pie, and the frosting and cake were very salty. Was that an error in judgement? The pumpkin was good. All in all very disappointed
The Pie caken was a big hit and delicious!!!..I saw the ad in Ophrah Magazine, ordered immediately and I was impressed with whole experience - from delivery to serving it to my family and friends....thumbs up!!
The Piecaken may be the best dessert I've ever eaten! Every guest at my meal feels the same way! thank you!
The Piecaken arrived rather smushed unlike the photo with gorgeous, fluffy apples on top but, hey, its frozen. Unwrapping took a bit of doing but Voila! We brought it to a dinner party. Talk about a conversation piece! I loved the bottom layers of quality pecan pie and the pumpkin layer. I didn't care for the spice and apple layers but others seemed to so to each their own. I would prefer a vanilla buttercream because, as over-the-top as the whole cake was, the cinnamon buttercream put it over even further. Certainly not your ordinary cake. Its ambition is impressive. And boy, is it sweet but that's what one would expect. I enjoyed the novelty of it, however.
Was satisfied with the Piecaken.it was delicious and to think that if a person is in the mood for cake or pie and cannot decide on which dessert,this will take care of the craving for both 🤗.The bottom which is pecan pie has lots of pecans and the middle is a pumpkin pie ,which is so creamy and delicious ,the top is the cake portion ,with the cake layer being moist and the frosting all around the 3 layers of both cake and pies was creamy and not too sweet topped with pieces of chopped apples and Caramel. Thumbs up to the person or persons that thought of this . To everyone give it a try and taste for yourself.
League City, TX
I bought the piecaken for Thanksgiving so I have not had a bite yet. The delivery was very impressive - it is safe in my freezer = it came iced down and insulated - not crushed. I cannot wait until Thanksgiving dinner!
Great service! I even changed the delivery address at the 11th hour with no problem! Cake went right into freezer - can't wait!
My first time ordering this. Have been wanting to try a piecaken for over a year now. I did not like that it had to be overnighted over 3 weeks before thanksgiving. I know it came frozen and with holding instructions. Just seemed for the price and the price of shipping it coulad have been the week before. And it was way smaller than I expected. It looks delicious. And I won't taste it for another 2 weeks but again for almost $100.00 I expected a little more.
I saw a picture of this in the Oprah Magazine and jokingly told my daughter that I wanted one for my birthday. She ordered and picked up the Piecaken at David Burke in Bloomingdales NYC. She froze it overnight and brought it with her on the plane to San Diego the next day. It looked exactly as pictured. We kept it in the refrigerator and ate it 3 days later. This is the most AMAZING dessert I have every had in my life! We had a party that night and cut it up in small slices and every single person (about 30+) that tried it asked for the ordering info. It is such a unique idea and no one had seen anything like it. I am now ordering one to be delivered for Thanksgiving and we all know that we will be eating smaller dinner portions to save room for dessert! I highly recommend this and can't wait to have it again in a few weeks!
