I want to experiment with orange flavors for a wedding type tier cake for a party (but not an actual wedding.)

So far my plan is for a white cake with added orange extract (already tried this, delicious!) and a yogurt buttercream with added orange zest (already tried this too, delicious!)

Now I'm looking for some sort of orange filling for between the layers that go with my cake/frosting combination. Any ideas???

What about whipped cream with orange zest added?

or you could use some orange marmalade...

Upon further thought, would you think an orange cream cheese frosting would be better than the yogurt?

Personally, yes, I would think so. But you are the one who has already tasted the orange yogurt BC and you said it was good so go with whatever you think is best!

What do you think of orange curd or BC flavored with Triple Sec/Grand Marnier? Or a chocolate frosting flavored with orange?

I did this last weekend. I made an orange curd and added orange zest. After it chilledI added it to the bc, it cuts down on the sweet taste of the bc. The best orange cake I have tasted is the orange wedding cake recipe here on cc that uses grapefruit zest in it. It definitely adds something to the recipe!

The orange wedding cake with grapefruit zest sounds delicious!

It's called Beth's wedding orange cake, and it is great as well as simple.

My suggestion is try something complementary to the orange like a Mango-Ginger filling. You could make a Triple Sec Syrup to brush on the cake instead of the orange extract in the cake. I created these two years ago for an engagement party cake and now it is a very popular filling with my clients. If you like, I would email you the recipes. icon_biggrin.gif

I have an awesome lemon filling that would be delicious with orange instead!
1 pkg (8oz) cream cheese
2 cups powdered sugar
cream these together, then add
juice from 1 orange, mix well

in a separate bowl beat 1c heavy cream until stiff peaks form. Carefully fold the cream into the cream cheese mixture. Enjoyicon_smile.gif
