Banana cake and what flavor icing? - Page 2

post #16 of 32
I would do a cream cheese frosting flavored with ginger.

Chocolate with banana would actually not have occurred to me. icon_lol.gif

Ok, now I am more confounded than before! All these ideas sound fantastic and I want to try them all! icon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gif I am leaning towards the banana split idea b/c I think I could do something interesting with that which will allow me to attempt some different techniques.

I have one set of cakes (went into a pre decorating baking frenzy last weekend and have 6" rounds out the wazoo) that is a mix of chocolate and banana, so maybe I'll do the "split" for that one and a cream cheese for the regular banana... decisions, decisions.

Thanks everyone for the great ideas.

Banana cake with pb frosting is by far the best. YUM!!! It is my most requested flavor next to my chocolate cake. Good luck choosing as they do all sound good.

I agree with the Peanut Butter vote. There is strong evidence that Peanutbutter on Banana cake makes you a better person ... icon_smile.gif

I always use dulce de luche buttercream with my banana cake (I add chocolate chips to the cake batter) it's great!

It looks like I absolutely MUST try PB as a flavor with the cake, it honestly never would have occured to me. I put chocolate on pretty much everything so that was what first popped into my head and just refused to make room for anything else. So the Chocolate/Banana cake is getting PB and the regular Banana cake is getting "Split".

Everyone on this site is so great, I can't wait to get into the kitchen this weekend!

Tesso, Just read your Jello MMF thread, there is a good chance that recipe will be making an appearance! thumbs_up.gif

Here is the finished product.

Banana cake torted to 4 layers with SMBC in between in the following flavors: Strawberry, Chocolate w/ nuts, Pineapple.

My neighbor was the recipient so I will find out today how it went over.

Thanks for all the advice. Next, chocolate w/ PB.

Fondant "scooped" with a cookie scoop for ice cream, fondant fruit, candy melts as choc. sauce. Cherry and nuts are real. All fondant is MMF.
