It probably should be, but I haven't icon_surprised.gif . It's never made me sick! (It's always been eaten within 8 hrs).

Well, I trust the WASC recipe so much that I haven't actually made every single of those yet But I haven't had any concoction fail me yet!

I did learn, though, that flavored cake mixes can be too sweet, too moist, too dense, so I use cake flour for those and combine a white mix with a flavored mix, as stated earlier.

Chocolate cake mixes tend to blend up thick, so I add more liquid to those. (3 cups as opposed to 2-2/3 cups).

I forgot to add that I think my brain is now hard-wired to recognize new flavor combinations, lol.

Like eating at Sweet Tomatoes and spotting the strawberry lemonade, ordering my favorite sourcream blueberry pie at Marie Calendar's, and my favorite popsicle (Big Missile) which is cherry and pineapple, peanut butter and banana sandwiches, 50/50 bars,...

Anytime I spot something I like, I turn it into a cake flavor!

What outstanding flavors!! Thank you all so much for sharing.
I'm fully aware that I abuse exclamation marks! It's better than abusing my husband, right? Cake decorating is exciting, periods are not!

that's exactly what i do all the time! i tell my customer's when they are trying to figure out what flavor(s) they want, i just ask them what is their favorite dessert, candy bar, ice cream, pie, adult beverage, things like that. frustrating tho when they still go with the regular wasc icon_rolleyes.gif

I'm with MacsMom. No way I've MADE all those combos, or have the time to...I just have them as ideas for great combos I know would work, should someone want them. And I know my base recipes very well, because I've made them all at one time or another, so I know they'll work in these combos.

It just provides some inspiration so the brides have choices to look at so they can get creative with flavors. Otherwise I get orders for...white cake with raspberry filling and chocolate cake with plain buttercream filling. Come on...push me. lol

Not doing cakes any more, moved on...

This is such a great topic, thank you all for the fantastic ideas thumbs_up.gif

I really love pistachios but have not really come across any cake recipes for using them - have two cookie recipes that I make very often. I see here people have mentioned pistachio flavours... would you mind sharing how you use them?

What about everyone's favorite butter creme recipes? What do you change to get great new flavors that compliment all your great cake flavors.

I just add a dram of LoRann flavored candy oil to my BC that matches the cake or filling. There are so many flavors to choose from! In fact, that is another place I get cake flavor ideas from. I want to make a guava cake for my birthday in March...

A dram is = to one teaspoon. LoRann sells tiny little dram-sized bottles.
