Doctored DH spice cake(with buttermilk, cin, applesauce) and i'm stumbling for flavors for fillings that would work well with this. everyone tells me to just use icing, but i'd like to have a couple other things i could offer. one idea was an apple filling just because i put applesauce in the mix. would that work and any other ideas would be great

I thought something apple, or maybe caramel apple or maybe just caramel.

I think caramel sound like a good idea too. what about some SMBC with some apple butter in it, or light cinnamon cream cheese, or brown sugar SMBC. gosh I think it would pair well with so many things...it'ld be a shame to not pair it with something other than vanilla.

I think just a cream cheese buttercream would be good. Don't want the filling to over power or distract you from the flavors you put in the cake when you do something special with your mix.

I would go w/ apple or caramel filling. If you go to the latino section in your grocery they have small cans about the size of condensed milk. It's thick, creamy & oh so yummy!!! I think it's LaLeche. Comstock has a special edition of Caramel Apple filling. Steer clear of it---it tastes like chemicals!!!

If you want buttercream I think cinnamon, caramel, brown sugar, apple spice or pumpkin spice would go well

When I make Spice cake I fill it alot of times with a Chocolate Hazelnut Filling.

I am thinking since it is a doctored mix with cinnamon, apple sauce and spice then why not a brown sugar cream cheese combo.

The brown sugar would compliment the apple and cinnamon flavors while the cream cheese would be tart and give the sweetness some balance.

Never tried making a combo of brown sugar and cream cheese butter cream/filling together, but maybe you can do the filling separately and have a three layer cake.

I made a spice cake with blackberry filling and cream cheese icing last fall....everyone LOVED it - the flavors were terrific together. It was on Epicurious .com if you wanted to look at the combo of flavors/spices.

How about a mixture of 8 oz. of honey walnut cream cheese and a jar of marshmallow cream? I mix raspberry cream cheese and marshmallow cream and it makes a great filling. I think the honey walnut would probably be delicious, too.

Not sure if this would work, but I make a caramel pie at Christmas by boiling cans of sweetened condensed milk. It turns a nice color with a caramel flavor and is ooey gooey thick deliciousness. Maybe mix with cream cheese to cut down on the sweetness. I'm pretty sure I got the idea off a can, but I can't remember which brand. You have to boil them for about an hour though, so be careful as those suckers get HOT.

Oooh, another idea hit me while I was driving home. Butter rum buttercream. You don't have to use alcohol (unless you want to), but McCormick's Rum flavoring has a great butter rum flavor, not to strong on the "rum".
