HELP! Gourmet flavors???? - Page 8

post #106 of 6398
Macsmom:
I just finished reading your list of flavors and I found the Tuxedo Cake, I just tasted that cake about 2 weeks ago and have been looking for the recipe like crazy. I found one but (together with picutre) doesn't look like the one I tasted. Do you mind sharing your recipe?
Thanks

I simply alternate layers of white cake (WASC using all vanilla extract) and dark chocolate cake (also a variation of the WASC, using dark chocolate cake mix, swapping out 1/3 c flour for 1/3 c cocoa powder, and adding chocolate fudge pudding mix. Oh, and using 3 cups coffee instead of 2-2/3 water).

For the fillings, I simply make one recipe chocolate truffle, and another using the same recipe but with white chocolate chips icon_wink.gif

Truffle filling
16 oz cream cheese, softened
4 c milk chocolate chips (2 bags)
1/3 c butter
1-1/2 t vanilla
2 c PS, sifted

Beat the cream cheese. Melt the chocolate and butter together in microwave; beat into cream cheese. Add vanilla and PS; beat well.

So I torte my cakes and assemble chocolate on bottom with chocolate fudge truffle, white cake with a layer of white truffle filling, and top with chocolate cake. Sometimes I make tall cakes using additional alternating layers.

I love Nuts and Berries! I used to bartend and we made it with Frangelico and Chambord. Frangelico is peanut based.

I giggled a bit, though, so I apologize, but WASC already has the almond in it (you could use LoRann amaretto flavor if you prefer) and if you use a raspberry filling... It's one of my most requested cakes! Original WASC with cheesecake and raspberry filling.



Actually, I think you mean that Frangelico is hazelnut flavoured... not peanut based. icon_smile.gif Soooo good with kahlua and creme de cacao in a specialty coffee!

Oops! You're right. I was thinking of peanuts because I used to make a "Snickers" shot using Frangelico, Buttershots, and Godiva liquer.

Oh darnit! I just made a new cake flavor, huh?

Mmmmmm.... I sure think so.

Mac, Please Please Please PM me when you make a recipe for a honeycomb cake. I also just got a recipie for honeycomb and made for my hubby as it is his ABSOLUTE favorite candy. He would be so amazed if I made a honeycomb cake....
And thx for all the other great ideas as well!!!
