I want to do a spice cake, but I need a good filling/ frosting ideas. I 've never done a spice cake, actually never even tasted one. but I want to try one, Help!?!
Spice cake is wonderful.
I have one ordered for a wedding, with mocha filling...
I've also heard of apricot, lemon/lime or a nut filling recommended, but never tried those.
...mmmmm....cream cheese filling and frosting...there is recipe here for crusting cream cheese....so yummy!!!
I recently tried a banana filling with a spice cake and it was very good...just used regular buttercream for frosting with a bit of cinamon and nutmeg in it, but don't use the spices if you don't want to see the little specs heh... was very yummy!
Cream cheese, maple cream cheese, orange cream cheese, hmmmmmmm......I'm sensing a pattern here. What can I say I love cream cheese!
I love coffee flavored buttercream on a spice cake, but cream chesse icing sounds really good too.
Here is an older recipe for a Caramel Apple spice cake, but you could use just the filling on a regular spice cake and it would be really good too.
Wow, I may try the caramel, but what do you think would be better, cinnamon frosting or caramel frosting?
definitely cream cheese vote from me, I have done this before and DH and DD loved it.. easy to do too
For my DH birthday i made a spice cake with an apple compote type filling. i make a cinnamon buttercream to be the first layer...and then i made a caramel frosting over that, once the cimmamon BC crusted to keep in the crumbs and filling. it was really yummy.
caramel, definitely caramel.
One of my more popular fall wedding cakes is rum-spice cake with either lemon curd or blackberry filling and cream cheese icing.
cinnamon buttercream is also quite nice, I did one last August with a CC spice cake recipe that was wonderfull!
