So here's my thoughts. I'm making an 8" square cake for a co-worker - they only have about 20 people to feed. The delima is which filling to use. They LOVE both raspberry and chocolate mousse, but can't decide and told me to pick

Since they like both fillings, would it be okay to make a 3 layer cake instead of a double layer cake and for one of the fillings do raspberry and the other filling do chocolate mousse?

Is it OK to have two different fillings in one cake? I'm not creative or daring and since they are paying for this, I want it to taste good. Thoughts?

I personally have never done one that way. But I have been to a couple gatherings that have had cakes with two different fillings. Best of Luck!

I put two fillings in cakes all the time! Just this past weekend I made 1 cake with lemon curd and raspberry and another with lemon curd and strawberry. I'm sure it'll be delicious!

Edna - would you mind sharing the recipe with me? If you don't want to, I understand. That does sound awesome and it would save me time in the kitchen and $$ since I'm not charging for the 3rd layer (my little gift to them).

Well..I can't eat your regular whipped cream filling and in the weddings we dont use dairy cause we have to deal with weddings outside the fridge.
We use bettercream and we use the rasberry sleeve fillings.. We combined thme together and the flavor is awesome.
If you are used to do whipped fillings and like them in the real stuff, just add raspberry (it can be a jelly too) until you are happy with the flavor.
I never tried that with the real whipped filling cause I am allergic to dairy.. icon_redface.gif
Hope this helps!...

I think it is an awesome idea. I have done different fillings in the same cake and love it. I also love doing different flavors of cake in the same tier.

Raspberry and chocolate is a classic combination. I have done many many cakes with more than one filling (sometimes three), but of course each flavor should compliment each other.
I don't like using one flavor for two or three layers of cake since I like to combine texture and flavor icon_smile.gif

You already have many who agree the two are *super* togethericon_smile.gif
Why not swirl some raspberry into your choco mousse?? OR instead of making the extra layer of cake torte your cake twice and use the two as you 1st thought? If you are concerned about handling such thin layers of cake partically fz the cake b efore torting. Use a cookie sheet or cake board to seperate them.
OR make one layer of mouse then a layer of raspb erry over it.
There really isin't any need to add that extra layer of cake.

you guys are the best. I think I'm gonna mix the raspberry and chocolate together and call it a day and just do 2 layers instead of 3. I don't know why I stress over this stuff. I'm a loon!
