I'm planning on making some cupcakes this weekend but the gingerbread with lemon filling and cream cheese BC is getting less than stellar responses and I don't want lots of leftovers.

I do what it to be holiday/seasonal though.

Recommendations?

Egg nog would be good, red velvet is a big request and peppermint cake(white or chocolate)

If it's for family then it's chocolate. Otherwise I get a mixed batch of requests - nothing fancy/special.

I was really trying to avoid mint, red velvet, and all chocolate and I hate eggnog so that's out. LOL. That's why I was thinking lemon gingerbread. I might still do it since I'm the baker and that's what I want. icon_lol.gif

You should change the topic to "Tell me what I want is right/No other ideas will work"

How about just gingerbread with creamcheese frosting. Leave the lemon out. Something with apple and cinimon sounds good. It reminds me of apple cider.

For Christmas, I have 5 requests every year. They are my:

1. Pina Colada cake
2. Rum cake w/ chocolate glaze
3. Better than sex cake (with grand marnier and crushed candy canes)
4. Rum balls
5. Carrot Cake

I make them all, in addition to fruit cake and fruit cake balls. Never have much left over.

I just finished making a Rum & Eggnog cake with a rum & eggnog cream cheese filling. It tastes amazing!

I'm not sure I "get" this seasonal flavors stuff. icon_confused.gif I like white cake year round. I like chocolate cake year round. I hate carrot cake, gingerbread, and lemon cake any day of the year. I keep reminding folks that its about what the guests will eat and not so much what the baker wants to showcase.

Its no showcase if no one eats it because they dont' like gingerbread (or whatever freaky flavor it is).

I love gingerbread,gingerbread cookies ( not cake)...
and the butter pecan cake is always popular around Christmas...
BUT the most requested is chocolate, anything chocolate seems to be a given in most orders icon_smile.gif
Have fun in whatever you decide icon_smile.gif

Love ginger cake - but isn't a Christmas flavour to me. Fruit cake says Christmas to me all the way!

I'm interested in your #3- 'Better than sex cake (with grand marnier and crushed candy canes). Is it in recipes? Are the others in recipes? If not, would you mind shraring #3 and #1? TIA!

I'm a hobby baker and making a cake for a party at work,so I can make the flavours I like.
But what do you think of red velvet with whipped BC colored green? I love the Christmasy look, but dont' appreciate minty stuff...
Too tacky?

Chocolate spice cake with black walnut buttercream filling. To clarify, that's a spice cake with chocolate chips I whiz through the food processor, not chocolate cake batter with spices.

IMHO,because RV is so intense in the food color department, I would not color the icing green, ( and while it entirely depends on the execution of it all - there is a strong possibility of "tackiness")but by all means you can/should use green accents and decorations to give it that Christmasy vibe!

You're right - I decided that and just went for the green filling. I used a white chocolate cream cheese icing with the red velvet.
