I'd like to make a cake for a Jack & Jill party. Its Luau themed and I was thinking of making a cake, but using Bailey's in the filling. Any suggestions for what kind of cake I should use or for the filling?

I would do a more tropical cake, if it has a luau theme. piña colada or lime daiquiri or something.

A jack & jill is like a bachelor/bachelorette party but both bride and groom are at the partyicon_smile.gif No separate party for them.

I just got a recipe from someone on here for a key lime filling, but would I use a yellow, white cake, or some special flavored cake? Coconut??

Either a white cake or coconut cake could work. A yellow cake is a bit heavier a flavor than a white cake, in my experience. ...you could try little batches of each and see which works best. I personally would go with white and let the lime flavor shine, but then, I tend to have a simple palette. (Also, I can't stand coconut! icon_lol.gif )

I just made the Bailey's Irish Cream cake that's on this site. It was delicious. In addition to the Bailey's, the recipe calls for vodka as well, so you can definitely taste the alcohol if that's what you're after. FYI, I made it with the butter pecan filling...yum

I'd like a white cake, torted (with each layer brushed with a coconut rum syrup)-- with the key lime filling.
