Hello cake lovers,

 

 

I would like some advise on what are the best fillings and frosting for a chocolate cake.I would prefer white or at least light-in-color frosting if there's any that match chocolate cakes. Can you also share some recipes? 

 

Thanks a lot :smile:

AI'm quite partial to passionfruit with dark chocolate.

I make a raspberry puree with sugar and a little cornstarch added. I think I found the recipe on the Wilton site. Everyone requests this flavor from me.

ARaspberry filling with chocolate cake is our most popular flavour combination.

With what frosting or cream do you cover your chocolate cakes?  thanks you both :)

AIt depends. If we're covering with paste or leaving it plain with frosting then we use SMBC. If the client wants we'll use a rich, dark chocolate frosting.

I've seen people covering and filling their chocolate cakes with cream cheese frosting, does that taste good? Is that common?

AI use CC filling with carrot cake or pumpkin spice. I don't like it with other flavours.

Taste is never objective.

I have 3 that I get asked to make all the time with chocolate cake.  Raspberry, Caramel and Latte.  They are all SMBC.
