Ooh cinnamon coffee cake sounds great! 
What about a bundt cake with a sprinkle of powdered sugar?
I  bake everything at 325 for a longer time and I cut off any dome because my kids and DH like cake scraps.  Just to make sure, OP, you are flipping your cake upside down and using the nice flat bottom as your top, correct?
It's the one on the CC home page.
He left the BC layer very uneven and not smooth at all.  That's going to show through fondant.  He only put a very thin layer of BC on, I use a nice full layer because people like BC and I make sure I take the time to make it perfect before I put on the fondant.  That's why his fondant is lumpy.  Those are the major ones.  Some minor preferences - I don't like the weird flower spray on top, I don't like the plastic pillars ( I use SPS) and he didn't mention putting a...

When I want a quick, easy yet beautiful cake, I go to the rose swirl (I am baker) technique or the buttercream ruffles.  I don't have to mess with fondant and they look so pretty and girly!
