I would have to say my favorite flavor combination is: Chocolate fudge cake with chocolate whip topping filling and frosting, covered in poured chocolate ganache and decorated with chocolate fudge frosting!
I know this sounds sickening sweet, but it really isn't! The chocolate whip topping lightens it up enough to make it tolerable. I have to make one like this at work a lot and it is a big hit. Made a couple at home for friends and the people who said they hate frosting on cakes just loved this combination! (See attached photo )

I've been doing a white chocolate hazlenut cake with carmel filling that is really good.
I also like chocolate cake with a turtle filling (mock chocolate cheesecake filling with carmel and pecans)
Another is banana cake with strawberry buttercream filling

Chocolate with whipped cream and crushed oreos

Chocolate with whip cream and cherry pie filling (even better if choc cake has a few tbsps of kirsch spread over it)

Chocolate with a coffee and baileys filling - whipped cream, some vanilla pudding to stabilise, a few tbsp of baileys and 1 tbsp instant coffee dissolved in 1 tbsp boiling water (nescafe tasters choice)

OK, so...

I just tried this amazing cake and want to replicate some version of it at home...

scratch yellow cake with layers of vanilla Swiss MBC (i think)
dark chocolate crumbs
mini chocolate chips and...
passion fruit curd.... OMG!!! icon_eek.gif

I wasn't sure about it when I was purchasing it but LM tell u! Honey! It was heaven in my mouth...

I love the way the bright acidity of the passion fruit cut threw the deep chocolate. Yellow cake and smooth SMBC just knocked it out of the park!

icon_smile.gif try making a buttercream frosting with just enough peanut butter to give it a taste and a little color...another thought is to use marshmellow fluff that comes in a jar, scoop it out (u might have to nuke it for a few seconds), add a tad of cream of tarter, 2 egg whites and whip it a few minutes. it turns out exceptionally glossy and after you cover the cake you might want to sprinkle the top with coconut....i used to make ice cream cakes...many different combos....1 layer of chocolate cake, 1 layer of peanut butter and apricot preserves, the next layer butter pecan ice cream, and repeat the process till you're satisfied....chef louise

In this tread they talk about flavor combo that are their favorite. It's about WASC cake, but I think you will enjoy all the different flavors they've put together, even if you don't use a WASC cake recipe.

This is the link to the thread

And this is a link to the google doc that has the recipes of all the cakes, fillings, and frosting they've come up with. You can also find this link under Macsmom's signature line.
