Ok, so I have to make a cake for my niece this weekend and when inquiring about what flavor cake she wanted.....I was told that vanilla would be fine because her siblings can not stand chocolate. I don't think that has ever been heard of......who doesn't like chocolate???!!! Getting to the point. In your opinions, what is the best filling to go with a plain jane vanilla cake? And what flavor of frosting would you combine with that filling? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!
Raspberry, strawberry, blueberry, lemon, lime, orange, banana, vanilla custard, mocha (ok, that's a bit "chocolatey", but pretty light! ), pineapple, mango....EVERYTHING WORKS WITH VANILLA!
You could even do white chocolate, if it's only dark/milk chocolates that they don't like??
My favourite "non-chocolate" option is always a vanilla with lemon/raspberry combo. Yum!
Any fruit filling will work.
(I don't like chocolate either, really. Traitor to my gender, I know.)
Ditto! yummy... :0)
cream cheese frosting and dulce de leche are also very good with vanilla.
My brother's favorite filling is my vanilla custard with sliced fresh strawberries and bananas. (Yummy!)
I too like fruit fillings, or even pudding/custards will work
a yummy lemon raspberry is always a sure hit.. its just the right amount of tartness
