Hi there!

I was wondering if you would like to share your favorite cake flavor combo's. I just have a really hard time just sitting down and putting things together on paper. Once I bake something, I can tell if it tastes good.. but I have to get there first.

Here's an example of what I'm interested in finding out: yellow cake with lemon syrup, filled with lemon curd, covered in Italian meringue buttercream.

Thank you so much for sharing!!

My recommendation is to check folks' web sites for different flavors & stuff. I mean they may show a list of fillings, a separate list of cake flavors then some splashes but that's where you can get some interesting ideas.

And keep your eyes open for when people say what kind of cake they made for that photo. White chocolate cake with bladeebladeebladeebla. That's where the combos become clearer.

I mean I use Grand Marnier and rum usually as my default splashes. And actually my three primary cake flavors are listed on my website which is overdue for some updating.
