Can anyone suggest a good amaretto cake recipe and suggestions for filling and icing please?

I have a lot of trouble doing flavor combinations (cake/ filling/ icing), is there a cheat sheet anywhere that could help me with this?

I did an amaretto cake with raspberry cream filling for my sisiter in laws wedding. It turned out great. I just substituted amaretto for the liquid in the dream cake receipe. The raspberry cream filling is in the receipe section on here. I iced with buttercream icing. Hope this helps.

Search the recipes here for "Amaretto Divine" looks like a decent recipe and it has an almond whipped cream filling.

Other options for fillings: Strawberry or Chocolate, both are complimentary to amaretto.

Remember amaretto is almond adding almond to your flavors will enhance the amaretto taste.

good luck.....If you find a better recipe, let us know.
