The cake is for a group of ladies who LOVE Strawberry Mango Margaritas. I'm making a mango cake from a recipe found here, but I want to use fillings to give it extra flavor. I need 3 fillings as I will (hopefully) have 4 layers of mango cake to separate. Here are some ideas I've come up with so far (I don't like icing, fondant or filling personally, so tastetesting won't really help!!):

Strawberry mousse
Strawberry buttercream
Lime gelatin mousse
Lime buttercream
Oreo mousse
Pineapple or other fruit filling
Chocolate genache
White chocolate strawberry genache
Chocolate Strawberry filling

I would go with a strawberry mousse, between the torted layers, since they like the strawberry and mango combo, then in the middle do the icing you are using on the cake.

So it would be mango cake, strawberry mousse, mango cake, icing, mango cake, strawberry mousse mango cake.

I won't mix in a bunch of different filling flavors personally.

I agree with TexasSugar, I would go with strawberry filling, either mousse or buttercream, or even strawberry jam or sleeve filling.

Jello makes (or made?) a margarita flavored gelatin, that might be neat incorporated into a strawberry filling.

My three would be definitely strawberry, coconut (tropical!) and chocolate ganache.

Raspberry goes GREAT with mango!

You all amaze me!! I've only posted a few things on this site and In a matter of 2hrs I have a bunch of great ideas!

Now the problem I'm facing is that my cake MIGHT make 3 layers, if I'm lucky!!
Always something, right? At least in my kitchen it is!!

I also would do raspberry and alternate the layers of cake with white chocolate mousse or ganache as well.
