I'm trying out a Bavarian cream filling this weekend and would love suggestions as to which flavor cake would pair beautifully with this.

I was just going to make vanilla, but I am suddenly feeling more adventurous! icon_smile.gif

I would keep the cake vanilla but flavor the Bavarian cream - strawberry, raspberry or cherry are popular flavors. Also, you could add a layer of strawberries or raspberries instead of flavoring the cream. Good luck. Chocolate cake would work too.

Since it is just a basic vanilla flavor, you could do anything. There is no real "best" flavor for it, so go crazy!

I'm weith you - *EVERYTHING* goes with it icon_smile.gif
I had a customer who always ordered white cake w/Bav. I thought that was sooooo bland/yuck icon_smile.gif Well, not yuck but so unimaginative.
I have paired it with choco, choco chip, butter pecan; lemon; fr van; - I think every flavor there is.

If you really want a contrast, go with a "sharp" cake flavor -- chocolate, spice cake, or something like that. The bavarian creme is very much like a fancy vanilla which is a base flavor and will help offset the sharpness of say a spice cake. Let us know how it goes!! icon_biggrin.gif

I know you are asking about cake flavors, but I had a comment about Bavarian Cream itself. Though I love Bavarian Cream, I think it belongs in a donut or pie. I think it gets "lost" as a cake filling. I often reommend Strawberry Bavarian Cream or Grand Marnier Bavarian Cream ...or anything added to the Bavarian Cream to enhance it.
