HELP! Gourmet flavors???? - Page 341

post #5101 of 6398
Ya, I make a jalapeno/mango jelly and mix it with cream cheese to make a great dip! Just sounded good to put it in some Bettercreme or buttercream. I wish I had time to experiment but got to put it on hold for awhile.

It's probably been done, but I just made carrot cake (& added pineapple) & made a blackberry filling to go w/ it. I have to say it was yummy!

Another mango flavor option - not sure how you would incorporate it, though - is chili powder. My sister-in-law (from central Mexico) is always sprinkling chili powder on her mango slices as she eats them. I'm not crazy about mango, so I've never tried it. But she loves it.

Yes, the flavors blend very nice together. Next week I need to try this! I'll let you know how it goes.

Would anyone be willing to share the recipe for Lemon Meriginue Coconut cake? I saw Chef Stef listed it and it sound really yummy. I PM'd her but no response as yet. I would like to try this one if anyone has the recipe.

thanks,

GrandmaG, please do let me know how it goes! If it turns out, I may make it for my husband's birthday. He's a big fan of the sweet and spicy flavor combinations.

On a separate note, thanks to everyone who guided and helped me with the root beer float cake (I made it for a friend's daughter's birthday). It was fabulous! It even had the adults talking!

on the rainbowlicious cake, do the cakes bake up lighter or darker than the wet batter? just want to make sure i end up with the right colors and not puce or rust icon_biggrin.gif

thank you again!



(made this cake earlier this week)
Maybe this will help Macsmom... I take the Andes chips and toss them in about a spoonful of flour coating them... that keeps them from sinking to the bottom and distributes them evenly in the batter. I add this to the batter at the end gently stirring them in.

pinkbox Do you care sharing the andes dream cake recipes? TIA

I'm making MacsMom's Orange Dreamsicle cake for my daughter's birthday. What kind of frosting/flavor would work well? I'm covering with fondant. I thought about the buttercream made with marshmallow fluff. I need to make sure I'm able to cover with fondant and leave it out of the fridge. Thanks.

Hi, my niece is turning 16 this weekend and i want to make her a two tier cake the snickerdoodle and maple white choc. cakes(her favorites). do you think those flavors go well together? any suggestions on filling? thinking of just covering with buttercream and doing zebra print and a big bright lime green bow(her favorite color).

Hi. I have really been enjoying this thread. Have my niece's cake decided.. and now need inspiration for my nephew's cake. He doesn't care much for cakes/sweets. I just IM'ed his sister to get some clues.. He does like Twix candy and Hot Fudge Sundae pop tarts and cookies and cream pop tarts. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated! I have 18 month twin girls and barely can think for myself these days. Thank you..thank you.

Well, I made the cookies 'n cream cake for my daughter's third birthday. It was a big hit with the kids. But you could totally do a twix cake. If I were doing a twix cake, I would probably do a Graham Cracker WASC with caramel and chocolate ganache fillings. Good luck on your cakes!

I just want to apologize to those who were asking me about the root beer float cake and glaze recipe!!! I stopped getting notifications about the thread and 5 whole pages went by!! I am so sorry!

I think those flavors go together great! You could fill with the white chocolate truffle on both and cinnamon buttercream on the Snickerdoodle and white chocolate on the maple/white chocolate! Sounds so yummy!
