How do I make a banana cake look a little more special ? I was thinking frosting with dried banana chips on it? Help anyone!

What kind of icing are you doing the cake in?  You could pipe big swirls around the top edge, drizzle on some chocolate and maybe half-dip your banana chips in chocolate and place on them.

Here's a link to a recent thread about a banana cake recipe (I've tried it after reading the thread and LOVE it.  I made mine with buttercream and no nuts and just presented it as an 8x4" round "dessert cake".  Sorry don't have pics but here is something similar that I googled:

JeffArnett's idea of dried banana chips placed in decorative rosettes is a good one.  Dipping them in chocolate is even better.  [Thanks Jeff!  I'll do that next time!]

In case you're interested, here's the link to the recipe thread:

I did the best ever banana pudding cake suggested by Apti a couple of times. Sooooo yummmmy!  In between each layer I've put brown sugar frosting, dulce de leche and sugar coated pecan. Very simple shell border on the botom and a nice drizzle of dulce de leche all over the top.  I've also add chopped sugar coated pecan around the top border of the cake. I don't think I have a picture. I'll have a look.
