Hi! yesterday a lady asked me for a white cake with 2 different filling: raspberry buttercream and lemon buttercream. Plus she wants a white frosting, maybe a vanilla buttercream.. I am very afraid that's too many different flavors.. I was thinking of lemon buttercream as frosting too, but she thinks It might not come out white as she wants.

any advices?

thank you

I think it sounds delicious. I have a cake very similar and call it pink lemonade. ;)

The lemon and raspberry sound very good together. If you use clear lemon extract in the buttercream it would stay white.  But I think that even if you do go with vanilla, it wouldn't clash. Vanilla mixes with most anything.

AThat's very similar to what I used for my wedding cake (except strawberry instead of raspberry) and everyone said it was one of the best cakes they'd ever had!

ANot too many flavors at all. Your "white" cake is vanilla too, isn't it?

Wow that actually sounds really good -- I might need to try it. ;-D

ASounds good - raspberry and lemon are a lovely combination. I'm not sure about "white" cake. White is so not a flavour.

I agree with everyone, those flavors go great together...and white cake and my basic buttercream are flavored with vanilla and go with everything too.

AI don't think I've ever made a white cake that wasn't flavored with vanilla.

ASome people consider white cake to be almond flavored.

AAlmond is almond.

Just thought I'd add that I, too, think your customer's order sounds great. Did you take the order or tell her no?

AI know that; which is why I specified that "[U]Some people[/U] consider white cake to be almond flavored ." I never said white cake is or should be almond cake.

I already argued the whole vanilla/yellow cake color vs flavor many moons ago, so you'd be preaching to the choir.
