Greeting Card Campaign: 11-27 National Bavarian Cream Pie Day

Click here to download Bavarian Cream Pie Day card.
November 27th is National Bavarian Cream Pie Day. Probably named for the German province of Bavaria, the Bavarian Cream Pie is a  delicious chilled cream pie made of layers of custard and whipped cream in a pie shell, then topped with even more whipped cream. The Bavarian cream pie dates back to the early 1800s. It first appeared in U.S. cookbooks toward the end of the 19th centurey and became even more popular with the invention of better methods of extracting cornstarch and with the concurrent rise of refrigeration technology.  The Bavarian cream pie led the way to other popular custards and cream or pudding pies.

Tell your sweetie pie that sweet pies make you think of her with this downloadable Bavarian Cream Pie Day card. Just click on the caption below the picture of the Bavarian Cream Pie.  The link will take you to a pdf file in Google Docs.  Download the file. Don't try to print the file from within Google Docs. I use a lot of fonts and Google Docs doesn't seem to like them very much.  Instead, click on "File" in the upper left corner, then select "download" and copy the file to your own computer. Open it with Adobe PDF Reader or whatever PDF reader you prefer.  Print the card from there and it should be fine.

This is a side fold card, so when you print it, be sure to select "landscape" and if you have two-sided printing, choose "flip on the short side" so that the inside of the card is the same way up as the outside.

Also, here are some good recipes for a nice Bavarian Cream Pie.
