I am looking for a unique recipe from scratch (I will not be using box mixes) for an upcoming event. I am tired of presenting people with the typical chocolate, vanilla, butter, banana or carrot!

Any suggestions on a unique cake flavor and filling??

Thanks!!!!!

Well, pick a flavor combo first, and then we can talk recipes....

Here are a few of my best sellers...

Strawberry Shortcake - vanilla bean cake with a strawberry filling

Cinnamon Bun - vanilla cake swirled with pecans, brown sugar and cinnamon

Cappucino Crunch - mocha cake with coffee bc with chopped choc. coffee beans for the crunch

Peanut Butter Cup - chocolate cake with a layer of peanut butter bc and a layer of ganache

German Chocolate - light chocolate cake with a caramel, pecan, coconut frosting

Those some of my best sellers to give you some ideas and get the juices flowing...

Thank you so much!! I will be covering the cake with fondant so need a base icing that is not nutty, I think! icon_smile.gif

Right now I am leaning towards a pineapple cake with lemon curd between the layers and lemon butter cream as a crumb coat, but I'm definitely going to check out some of the flavors you post. I am starved now just reading them!!!!

Thanks muchly! icon_smile.gif

You dont have to use the same icing for filling that you do for crumb coating. In fact I never do. Fillings for me are room for experimentation. I use nuts, mini chocolate chips, fruit, peanut butter, pecan butter, etc. for fillings and then crumb coat in a regular old stiff vanilla (or other complmenting flavor) BC.
