I am making a traditional WASC cake but I am lost on what filling and buttercream flavors to use.  My sister doesnt want any fruit filling and I cant do cream cream filling because of the time the cake will sit out while im working on it.  I need some help being that she left the option up to me.  I need something that is non perishable but not boring.  Also I would like to know if I should  flavor the buttercream with almond extract or ameretto liquor?  What do you all think? What have you all paired with almond flavored cake?birthday.gif

My *original* WASC recipe can be used with ANY flavor cake.  I match the filling w/the cake flavor.

You can flavor b'cream recipes in any way/flavor you want.  Have you tried my "2 of everything b'cream" recipe?

It calls for 2 Tablespoon of flavoring.  You can make up any combination of flavors in the 2 T.  I prefer using almond extract along w/the vanilla and butter flavorings.  Some people object to the use of Liquor in their icing/food.  (Why I don't understand because ALL extracts contain a good portion of alcohol - what's the difference between that alcohol and liquor/booze??).

If you scroll down to the end of that icing recipe you will see where I have made comments about combining flavors for icing.
