I am interested in learing what cake flavor combinations you have tried. How did they taste and would you make them again? thumbsdown.gifthumbs_up.gif

I am a newbie and am getting tired of doing van/choc with homemade royal icing. Today I am trying fudge choc with rasp filling and dark ganache. Hopefully it turns out good.

Mix some of the sleeved raspberry filling with chocolate icing and use that as a filling ... really adds a pop! to about any cake flavor! My brides order this a lot with choc cake and yellow cake.

Some of the combos my brides have ordered are:
Rum cake with apricot/pineapple.
Rum cake with banana filling (banana daiquairi)
Lemon cake with raspberry filling.
Coconut cake wiht pineapple filling
Pineapple cake with coconut BC filling
Spice cake with apple filling
White or (lightly flavored) orange cake with dreamsicle-flavored filling

These all sound so good.

My most popular is a marble cake with milk chocolate ganache filling.

Another good one is a spice cake with either a blackberry or a cream cheese filling.

White chocolate cake with raspberry filling.
