We are having a luau for my moms bday, the cake will be 2 tiers Lemon with keylime filling and Orange dreamsiccle. I was thinking vanilla filling but does anyone else have any ideas? Thanks

Also this will be the first time making this cake it is stable for stacking correct? I will be doweling.

That sounds good. Does that recipe crust well?

I've made the orange dreamsicle with white chocolate truffle filling. It was very well received. I made it for a wedding shower and everyone raved about it, but, of course, I never got the chance to sample it. I have also heard that chocolate in between the layers is good, too. I would think your vanilla idea would be good -- just a vanilla pudding type of flavor.

Mindy - it crusts a little bit, but not a ton. If you add just a pinch of salt to the frosting, it will crust a little bit more for you.

Your welcome!

Sorry, I didn't even notice your question about doweling and stacking. The most important thing is to get the cake level. Then just cut the dowels at the tallest point of the cake. Put a little bit of fresh buttercream down around the dowels and then put the cake on.

If you are going to deliver the cake, I would also run a tall dowel through the entire cake.

I make the orange cake using the fancifil cake pans then for the filling I make up some orange jello using only 1 cup of water , let it cool till it starts to firm up then whip it. Next I fold in an 8 oz. container of Whip Topping.
I frost it with orange flavored buttercream.
This is one of my family's favorite cakes.

I use white chocolate truffle filling from MacsMom and white chocolate cream cheese icing.

A friend of mine was just telling me about a filling she uses for a dreamsicle cake that is similar to grams recipe. She said that she also adds mandarin oranges in there somehow. She said her family loves it too. I haven't tried it.

I made the orange dreamsicle cake a month ago for a birthday - torted the layers and used a chocolate BC and then covered it with white BC and then fondant and lots of fondant decorations. The chocolate was delicious with the orange. YUMO!

Get a red velvet cake and put a fudge cake on top of it and then putting red and chocolate icing all over it. That sounds great.
