I'm going to make my mom's 60th birthday cake and we've settled on fall themed colors (rust, orange, yellow, brown). I'm going to make a rosette cake and would like to do vertical layers with one layer being chocolate. What other layer flavor would go well with chocolate and coincide with the fall color theme? I don't think lemon would be good. Pumpkin - not everyone is a fan. Thoughts? Ideas?

ABrown Sugar Cinnamon is yummy. Or strawberry, even Neapolitan. Caramel. Banana (not sure that's a fall flavor though).

If you can't come up with flavor combinations, you could always just use white cake and use food coloring to achieve the colors you need in your cake.

AMany people really like the flavours of chocolate and orange together. That might work.

I definitely thought of raspberry. One of my favorite combos...but wasn't sure if that was an autumn thing. You know I love a combination of pecans and cranberries. There may be some way to incorporate those into a filling. Both very autumn foods.

Thanks everyone, those are all helpful. I love, love, love chocolate and raspberry together and hadn't even thought about mocha! Either of those would be fabulous. Thanks!
