Okay so were having a potluck on friday for all of the teachers and staff at the local high school I work at. I have been chosen to bring a two teired cake to show my talents off and show them what I got.

First of all I have only done ONE teired cake haha and I never do any flavors that fancy. I want to make a cake that will knock their socks off. Was thinking maybe a fruit flavored cake then a coffee/hazelnut cake I dunno. Any ideas...if so can you send me receipes.....ALSO How would I stack and secure a two tired cake... What sizes etc? I need to feed prolly 50+

Thank you before hand for all your help!!

The teachers at my school love my white sour cream cake with chocolate hazelnut filling. Add Nutrella to canned chocolate icing, and then I add some powdered sugar until I get the right consistency. They also love my white sour cream cake with raspberry preserves as a filling. I've made a coconut cream cake with coconut filling that they seem to love. Instead of all of the water called for in the recipe, I substitute about a cup of it with coconut milk. I'm on the social committee so I make the cakes for all of the social occasions (showers, retirement, principal's birthday, etc....) I hope this helps.

Hazelnut filling sounds great. I also never thought of using coconut milk instead of water. Thank you very much

What a great opportunmity to show officon_smile.gif

there are soooooo many cake flavor/combinations the list would be endless.
Lemon w/lemon fill or raspberry or even chocolate is different.
Choco cake w/raspberry; or strawberry or lemon or hazelnut or cheesecake filling
Butter Pecan cake w/bavarian creme fill or spiced apple pie (canned) or thickened applesauce.

For 50 servings I suggest a 10" round and a 6", 7" or 8" round (though I'm not a fan of only 2" difference.)
Don't forget to dowel (straws are just fine). Make sure you dbl or even tripple the # of cake boards on the bottom, then cover it in grease proof paper.
Once you are completely finished sharpen a long dowel to go all the way thru both cakes & into the board to hold it all together for the deliv ery.
