What's Your Flavor?
Most cake designers offer about 20 different cake flavors and over 30 fillings—and with cake flavors like banana and guava, and exotic fillings like pineapple and mango cream, the potential combinations can get complicated. We asked Andy Strachwsky of Bake Me a Cake in Altamonte Springs, 407-830-9006, bakemeacake.net, for some advice. "Couples tend to be concerned about their guests liking the cake, so they stay away from flavors that are considered too exotic," says Strachwsky. "I think wedding cake flavors should reflect the couple’s tastes—it’s not like guests will take back their gifts if they don’t like it!" For an Orlando wedding, Bake Me a Cake created this coconut cake with chocolate ganache filling, decorated with fondant ribbon, stripes and flowers.
