What’s Your Flavor
Selecting the flavors and fillings of your cake can be as tricky as deciding on its decorations. Most bakers offer about 15 cake flavors and 20 fillings, so we asked Nina Asadoorian of Truli Confectionary Arts in Philadelphia, 215-856-9206, truliconfectionaryarts.com, for some advice on choosing wisely. "Brides are requesting rich, fudgey chocolate cake with ganache and mocha espresso or hazelnut buttercream," she says. "I wish more couples would consider airy genoise sponge cake with passion fruit curd and macadamia nut buttercream." Truli’s fondant-frosted cake (left) with handmade sugar parrot tulips and fondant swags feature the "delicious deviation" of genoise sponge cake with guava curd and strawberry buttercream.
