I need help! I'm making a cake for my daughters 3rd birthday. The theme is a certain monkey so I thought it would be brilliant to do a banana cake. But I'm not sure what filling or what kind of icing to put with it. It's going to be a 12inch so should I do one layer banana and then filling and then another layer of something else?? Any ideas. I need to start making the cakes on Thursday.

Since it's a kids birthday party I don't want to do grown-up tastes but something the kids would like. I guess as long as it has sugar the kids will like it. icon_biggrin.gif

I just made 2 banana cakes this weekend with 2 different fillings so they'd be a little different. I used chocolate bettercream for one. For the other I made what I call a banana split cake, everyone loved it. I put pineapple jam for the bottom layer, chocolate syrup for the middle and fresh strawberries with simple syrup for the next.

I've done a cake before where one layer was banana and one was chocolate. The filling was a caramel filling, it went great with both cake flavors.

A strawberry filling would be nice with the banana too.

The bakery where I work, fresh strawberries and fresh bananas are our most popular filling choice. If you use banana cake (as in banana flavored cake) cream cheese icing is delicious! I made this for my brother's birthday, and I have another order for it for this weekend! HTH!
