The birthday boy has asked me for chocolate cake with cream cheese icing for his 18th cake (we work together.) I have never tried this combo, has anyone ever used it and if so was it good? any input would be greatly appreciated. TIA

Wonderful - thanks ladies! I've only ever made it with carrot or banana cake. He's so cute, he's messaged me from a post about my cakes on facebook. "Let's use the cream cheese part - you can keep the banana!"

1) I tend to view questions like this as "Why wouldn't it?"
2) If that's what the birthday boy wants, then I don't see the question.
3) I make it all the time.

Hi everyone. I am SOOO happy i found this website! i have learned so much from here.

But i was wondering, has anyone tried a fruit filling, like strawberries or raspberries, on chocolate cake with cream cheese buttercream? or what other filling could go well with this?

Thank you!

Yes, it's commonly served in the form of red velvet cake if it has cream cheese icing.

It is so yummy with fresh strawberries! What I really like to make is chocolate cake, a layer of chocolate cream cheese frosting and then chopped fresh strawberries - so good. Good luck with your cake!
