One of the constant topics I see on here is requests for cake/flavor combos. Yesterday MacsMom posted an awesome list in another post and I thought that we could keep it going. I am going to post Macsmom's list (I hope that's ok). Then we can have a frame of reference.

My favorites are:
White cake w/ Lemon curd
Chocolate w/ ganache
WASC w/custard and fruit jam (Black Raspberry)
Yellow cake w/custard filling and Poured Chocolate Ganache
