I am doing a cake for my sister for this Saturday. Tell me if this sounds good to you???
Red velvet cake with a strawberry cream cheese filling covered in white chocolate ganache??
ANo, it does absolutely not sound good at all.
Sounds pretty good to me, although I might go with a plain cream cheese buttercream instead of the strawberry. But, then again, sugar is my favorite flavor so I may not be a suitable benchmark.
Ok, how about a strawberry swiss meringue for the filling and for it to be iced in. I am trying to add some flavor since red velvet cake is not a flavor.
AAlso fine. I personally love any and all things cream cheese so it really would be fine, too. Like you said, red velvet doesn't have a distinct flavor so it's really fairly neutral ground. And the white chocolate ganache plays well off anything other than French fries. :)
Why not just make something besides red velvet?
One of my family's favourite red velvet cake is to use cream cheese icing as filling but to also add fresh raspberries and blueberries in between each layer. I ice the whole cake in cream cheese icing as well.
AI made the cake layers earlier in the week so I was committed to red velvet. But I just finished filling and icing the cake. I ended up making a SMBC. For the filling I added pulverized freeze dried strawberries. It is yummy and this way there was no chance of watering down that luscious SMBC that I worked so hard on. Then I iced it with the vanilla flavored SMBC. It will be simple design. The color of the icing is a soft pale mint green and I have one:-) wafer paper rose that is 3 1/2 inches in diameter. I'll post my picture.
Thanks for the advice.
