Need help with cake flavour!

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hi All,

Wondering if I can get some help!

I've been asked to do a 2 tier baby shower cake, and the mom-to-be wants a vanilla cake with fruit and chocolate frosting? I feel like she's thinking about the grocery store sheet cakes that come with fruit on top?

Any ideas on what kind of cake I can do? It has to be fondant covered for the design - so I'm assuming I have to use chocolate buttercream for the frosting, and I'm fine with the vanilla cake part.... but fruit filling? Wouldn't that be hard to do with a stacked cake??

Any help/ advice?

Thanks!

You could do the fruit as filling between the layers.

I would do a raspberry filling because that goes well with a vaniila cake as well as the chocolate frosting.

Raspberry would be wonderful or how about amaretto cherries?

Here's another vote for raspberry filling. I would use a good brand of raspberry jam/fruit spread and add fresh berries also. It is the perfect flavor for the combination of vanilla cake w/choco icing icon_smile.gif

Thanks! How do you guys feel about vanilla cake with buttercream and strawberries as the filling, with chocolate frosting?

I will run the rasberry jam + fresh rasberries by her in the meantime.

Thanks!!

I would vote raspberry, too, b/c it's so good with chocolate- but strawberries are yummy, too.
I use the recipe for raspberry filling that is on the cakeboss website--it is sooooooo good, and it is smooth, so unlike strawberries- it won't be lumpy. seedless rasperry filling - it's dellicious!!
I've learned so much from my mistakes..... I'm thinking of making a few more!
