What’s Your Flavor?
Choosing the flavors and fillings of your cake can be as tricky as deciding on its exterior decorations. Most cake designers offer about 15 flavors and 20 fillings—and with exotic fillings like passion fruit and cappuccino, and cake flavors like banana and lemon, the potential combinations can get complicated. "If you don’t want to do vanilla cake, opt for chocolate cake paired with a layer of fresh orange cake with Grand Marnier filling," says Sandy Hargrave at Classic Cakes of Aspen, 970-927-5450, sandyhargrave.com. "Generally, the most important thing is for couples to choose favorites, not necessarily what’s traditional." For a late summer weddding, Classic Cakes of Aspen created this French-buttercream frosted cake that featured two layers of vanilla cake with raspberry filling and two layers of chocolate cake with ganache filling.
