Ok so I am very conserative when it comes to cake flavors and fillings. I have decided to start trying new things starting with my sister in laws baby shower cake this week.
So please tell me what your favorite fillings are for chocolate cake.
Peanut butter buttercream is my favorite.
Raspberry creme. My number one requested cake is chocolate cake with raspberry creme filling and white chocolate mousse frosting.
White choc. raspberry SMBC.
Until this combo, I hated raspberry and cake combos. Despised them.
Pineapple filling, did once and all my family members loved it!!
Raspberry filing or raspberry buttercream... for sure!!!
i love a chocolate cake torted with a really good chocolate ganache! nothing beats choc on choc!
chocolate truffle filling.... :drool:
chocolate chip cookie dough filling
I often do a whipped chocolate ganache which goes down very well. Heat up cream, add chocolate, stir until melted, add flavorings, chill until fairly cool, then whip. 2 parts cream to 1 part chocolate.
I sometimes add peanuts and caramel to each layer for snickers, or almonds and a layer of coconut mixed with cream cheese frosting for almond joy.
Whipped cream and strawberries is always a winner!
Cookies and cream - Oreos chopped up and mixed in buttercream, simple & delicious, always a big hit.
Cannoli! Hands down!
There's a recipe on here...I don't put the cherries in mine, though.
cheesecake mousse...........I love it in EVERY kind of cake though......and with no cake.........and on cookies..........oh and with ice cream.....................mmmmmmmmmm....its so good with..........a spoon!!
Thanks for all the great ideas everyone.
Right now I am debating between chocolate ganache, oreo and cannoli.
But I am still open to more ideas so keep them coming.
