Flourless Chocolate Cake: Part 2
Wedding Cake Flavors: Thinking Outside The Box
The “Not So Famous” Wedding Cake Flavors
Traditional, decadent, wonderful wedding cake flavors such as vanilla bean, chocolate, almond and lemon have graced cake tables for years. Classics such as red velvet, carrot cake and banana cake flavors have been the cake of choice for many happy celebrations. But what about these new fangled flavors that are popping up out of the imaginative minds of bakers everywhere? Is it “safe” to spend money on a cake flavor that your guests may not be accustomed to? Are theses flavors just a fad? I leave you to ponder those questions. Here are some bold flavor choices that you and your fiancé may want to request at your next cake tasting.
Cinnamon Roll Pound Cake with “Cinnabon” Buttercream
An all-time favorite, the flavor of a great cinnamon roll is something that should pleasantly surprise your guests. Swirled with cinnamon and sugar this cake would be great choice for the coffee drinking, book loving newlywed couple.
Raspberry Lemon Coconut Cake with Vanilla Buttercream
A bright, lucious wedding cake flavor, this raspberry lemon coconut cake flavor would be a great compliment to a Summer wedding. Raspberry filling layered on a lemon cake is sure to give your guests the perfect pucker-up tart and sweet flavor combination.
Butter Pecan Cake with Maple Buttercream
Butter pecan ice cream is an old fashioned favorite. So why not have a vintage wedding paired with a vintage flavor. Layers of pecans in a maple buttercream filling would be a sweet addition to a Autumn wedding.
Strawberry Shortcake Cake with Fluffy White Buttercream
Fourth of July parties, backyard barbecues, and church picnics invoke thoughts of strawberry shortcakes served with rootbeer floats and ice cream. This wedding cake flavor would be a great accompaniment to an outdoor wedding. This flavor profile is both stylish and comforting.
Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Brownie Cake with Chocolate Buttercream
Bring out the child-like excitment in all of your guests with this peanut butter cookie dough brownie cake. Decadent and fun, this wedding cake flavor brings bake all the great memories of homemade brownies and baking cookies with mom.

Gluten-Free Banana Custard Birthday Cake
By Grace Cakes Gluten-Free Bakery, Bay City, Mi
What’s been cookin’? The moistest gluten-free banana cake, filled with custard buttercream.
Each layer uses 1 1/4 cups bananas, pecans and buttermilk. The recipe comes from my Grandma Mickey’s old cookbook, which I converted into a gluten-free recipe. As you can see, I used a gluten-free buttercream, which you can find in my recipes section, to create a filling barrier. My, made from scratch, custard buttercream, using eggs for our own organic, free range chickens, gives a creamy, savory flavor to a very sweet cake.
The white buttercream border was piped using a 1M tip reverse scroll motion. Using an extra stiff buttercream, the roses and leaves show more definition and dry quickly. The custard soaked gluten-free banana cake gives the dessert extra moisture and flavor.
Gluten-Free Confetti Cake
