I am brand new to the "cake world" and have been practing A LOT!! I bake a cake and frost it almost every night. The bad thing is I can not eat cake (diet) so my hubby has been taste testing all of them. He wants me to try something "new". Guess he is getting tired of the white cake with BC icing! I have looked thru the recipes but thought it would be interesting to see what your favs are. Give me your fav. cake flavor along with filling and or frosting.
TIA,
LeAnn

Jayde, would you share how you make the chocolate cappucino mousse? (If you don't mind.) icon_wink.gif That sounds amazing!

Most most requested is the WASC with strawberry cream filling, and strawberry with strawberry cream filling. My favorite so far has been the coconut cake WASC with pineapple filling and coconut cream cheese icing.

Otherwise, Choc and Peanut Butter.

4 large eggs, separated
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup sweet cream butter, cut into small chunks
1/4 cup strong coffee (i use chocolate coffee)
3 tablespoons Kahula
7 ounces bittersweet or semisweet chocolate chips


Whisk the egg yolks, 1/4 cup of sugar, butter, 1/4 cup of water, and the Kahula in a metal bowl to blend. Set the bowl over a saucepan of simmering water (do not allow the bottom of the bowl to touch the water); whisk constantly until the mixture is very thick and frothy, about 3 minutes. Add the chocolate and stir until melted and smooth. Remove from the heat.

Using an electric mixer, beat the egg whites in another large bowl to soft peaks. Gradually add the remaining 1/4 cup of sugar, beating until stiff and glossy peaks form. Remove the chocolate from over the water. Fold 1/3 of the meringue into the warm chocolate mixture to lighten, then fold in the remaining meringue.

Cover tightly with plastic wrap and refrigerate until set, at least 3 hours or overnight.

Wow!! My hubby will be so happy!! I may have to "break" the diet for some of these. Thank you all very much!

Thanks Jayde! That looks awesome!

For the WASC I just use the regular recipe except substitute coconut extract and Princess cake and cookie flavoring for the vanilla and almond extracts.

I also use the Decorators Cream Cheese Frosting (below) and use the coconut and Princess cake and cookie flavorings there also. I like this one because it crusts well:

You can buy the pineapple filling in a sleeve or make it fairly easy with this recipe from ladycakes.com:

3 Tbsp flour
1/2 c sugar
2 Tbsp butter
20 oz. can crushed pineapple, undrained

Combine flour and sugar in a saucepan. Add butter and pineapple; cook and stir until bubbly and thickened. Cool before using.


The strawberry filling that I use is this whipped cream frosting, but only 1/2 cup of sugar:

To give it the strawberry flavor, I to add the strawberry icing fruits from countrykitchensa.com. It's a great way to really add a true strawberry flavor. I just keep adding it until it tastes right.

I hope this helps. thumbs_up.gif

MVigil - A good rule of thumb is that if it has cream or eggs in it, it probably should be refridgerated.

How does everyone get their peanut butter filling? I'm doing a peanut butter cup cake coming up and I worry that a pb filling would be gummy.

Jayde Posted 5 Jun 2008 , 10:27pm

I use the Silky Peanut Butter Filling Recipe in the recipe section.
