Someone has asked me to make a strawberry cake with lemon filling. They like these individually but I do not think they have had them together. Will these flavors work together? I was going to do strawberry cake WASC style and do the lemon pudding with heavy cream and milk filling so the flavors shouldn't be too overpowering. Any thoughts?

It doesn't sound that appetizing to me, but if that's what the customer asked for, I'd go ahead and make it for them. Everyone has their own taste, I guess!

I think it will be okay. People have strawberry lemonade all the time.

I've made a WASC cake with lemon filling and fresh rasperries on top. What about a lemon wasc cake with raspberry mousse filling?

They probably wouldn't like it. I like your idea of adding the heavy cream & milk to make a mousse. Like JGMB said, if that's what they want...

Can't wait to see it!

I forgot to post after I made this cake how it turned out. Cake was super cute and colors were pretty because of pink cake and pale yellow filling. The clients loved it. She mainly loves lemon filling and wanted strawberry cake because it was for her daughter's strawberry shortcake birthday. Anyway, cake tasted fine. Not my favorite but it was good. I did overhear one guest comment on the "odd flavors to put together but it tastes fine." I would have felt awful if people didn't like the taste since it was a big party. So it worked but just wouldn't be my first choice. icon_smile.gif
