I need some help with my mothers day cake!
I am planning it right now but I cant figure out any flavors that goes with warm sunny weather.
I was going to make a chai tea cake with honey ginger frosting, but my mom said it is too winter-like...
Im gonna decorate it with daisies and ladybugs, so the flavor has to go with that....
Lemon or any type of citrus goes well with warm weather.
Lemon, Orange, Strawberry, Passionfruit, They all say summer to me
I am trying to do a mom's day cake also. I am thinking of something along the lines of either lemon cake with berries or maybe orange cake with something (nothing is coming to me to go with the orange yet). Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.
I just did an orange cake with orange marmalade mixed with a little bc for the filling and vanilla bc frosting. It went over very well.
I just made a Lemonade Chiffon with Raspberry Filling cake for Easter. It was delicious and spoke "warm, sunny weather" to me. It's in the Cake Mix Dr. Returns book.
I recently had an orange cake with sour cherry filling and white chocolate gnache. it was fabulous!
My second thought would be lemon cake with either raspberry or strawberry filling (reminds me of berry lemonade).
I am making a mother's day cake as well. I was thinking something simple like a yellow cake with either lemon filling or vanilla pudding. I have done both before and they are both good. They are very basic though.
I agree with everyone else--citrus or strawberry. Has anyone ever done orange with chocolate? Those two flavors are really good together. Pioneer Woman website has an awesome yogurt marmalade cake that says summer to me everytime I make it. My dh who is a chocolate-covered-chocolate-with-a side-of-chocolate kind of guy, loves that cake!
How about a Margarita cake or may something with coconut?
I was thinking coconut cake too, maybe with a pineapple filling.
But I am drooling just reading this post!
How about FrenchVanilla Cake with raspberry and vanilla pudding filling and raspberry buttercream. I have also done coconut cake with banana cream filling and banana coconut frosting or Strawberry and chocolate cakes layered with chocolate fudge filling and strawberry frosting.
