Hey Guys! I'm going to be making a cake for my family for Christmas to show off my new skills, lol. What are some of your favorite, Cake and Filling Combinations? I want to make something they will love! Thanks for any suggestions.
you mean holiday flavors?
I think it's more dependent on what THEY like, and less on what you'd like to make.
YOu can bring the prettiest pumpkin cake with apple-ginger filling in the world ..... but I'm not letting it within 3 feet of my taste buds and neither would most of my family because they don't like those flavors. My youngest wants chocolate cake ... always. My son-in-law like white cake with white icing filling covered in white icing. Period.
So knowing your family and what they like to eat is the biggest factor in how well your cake is appreciated and how much they'll like it.
My family would shove anything I make in their faces (I mean that in a good way!) So, if your family is like mine, I would say try out a new flavor...you never know what could become the next favorite thing! But if you know there is something they all don't like, obviously don't make that. I am making new flavors and combos all the time.
Here are some of my favorites:
Chocolate and caramel
Chocolate or white and raspberry
White and strawberry
Chocolate and marshmallow
Chocolate and peppermint bc
I think my list could go on forever, but these are some of the faves! HTH!
What kind of cake would go good with Bavarian Cream filling? I bought some at my local bakery but haven't used it yet.
Bavarian cream filling with dark chocolate fudge cake is what 50% of my requests are for.
chocolate cake with bavarian creme is kinda like a boston creme pie type of cake.
Do an italian cream cake without the pecans with white chocolate cream cheese icing and strawberries in between layers. trust me it is to die for!!!It will look all gourmet and expensive but it is cheap and easy to do, I love that cake and make it all the time but try more new things here and there. My sons christmas party cake will be choc with cookies and cream filling and I am trying a different filling than what other people use.
Mmmmmm dark chocolate fudge cake does sound good! I'll have to try with my bavarian. Do use one of the recipes here? I see several on here.
I am a newbie in cake making, but on my son's birthday I made a white chocolate cake (Anna Olson's recipe) with buttercream filling and icing and everyone raved about it. You can try raspberry filling/sliced strawberries with buttercream instead. whatever you decide to make, I'am sure it'll be a big hit.
Sorry, nothing fancy or different just Duncan Hines dark chocolate fudge.
