I hope this is in the right forum. I am planning on making the AMAZING Chocolate WASC cake and filling it with JodieF's caramel filling. First of all, I'd love any reviews/tips on these two recipes if you've tried one. Second of all, I was considering a chocolate cream cheese frosting...would that be an odd combination? Should I just stick with a buttercream?...or maybe just a vanilla cream cheese icing? Thank you guys so much!!

I made the best chocolate cream cheese filling over the weekend, so I am partial to that right now. I just used icing and threw in some cream cheese and some cocoa powder "to taste" YUM!

Why not the best of both worlds - use Earlene Moor's cr che b'cream recipe sub'ing some of the sugar for cocoa powder? &/or adding melted chocolate?

Martha Stewart has a chocolate cream cheese frosting that also has sour cream and butter in it. It is absolutely divine. I used it to frost a banana cake for Easter and it was a hit. Very rich and decadant.

There is an amazing chocolate frosting recipe on here. I can't stop eating it (after I'm done making the cake).
