Don't know if this is the right place for this post but I was just wondering.......what are your favorite cake flavor/frosting combos? All my family ever eats is chocolate and well, that gets old. I'd like to try some different flavors and just wondering what flavors go with what! icon_biggrin.gif

If you have links to recipes that would be awesome too!

Have you baked them as cupcakes before?

I was thinking about making something for the guys at work, but cupcakes are easier on the grab and go factor.

No, I haven't; but have baked many of Sky High recipes as cupcakes before with no problems. It's my go-to book for delicious combinations.

I wanted to do it a while ago, and put one of those dried pineapple flowers on top of each cupcake. Like this? I even got the apple corer to core the cupcakes and put the pineapple inside.


But my day job doesn't let me do much!! If I get to bake the cake is only because my aunt requests it for her birthday all the time.
