Is there life beyond vanilla cake? January 7, 2009

So I know you are saying…”Julia, I have read over your extensive list of flavors (found here) and I am more confused now that ever”!  Don’t worry, you can have them all…. uhm well no, I guess that won’t work.  Okay since you asked so desperately, I will try to narrow it down to my top 5, uhm 10, er 11 favorites.  Cake is really a mix and match type deal… be creative, explore a little: it’s fun.


A word of advice, if I may, while you may absolutely LOVE chocolate cake with lemon curd…chances are the majority of your guests will not.  So consider choosing more than one flavor combination for your cake.  A minimal charge of $15 is added for each additional flavor combination, but this way you get your cake and your guests will eat it too!


Drum Roll please……Our most popular cake is…

            Butter cake with Vanilla American Buttercream….

I believe the popularity of this cake stems from the fact that this cake reminds people of why they love cake.  This is a velvety moist cake with a rich creamy buttercream that tastes like home.  This cake is popular with both the wedding and birthday crowds.


Our most popular grown-up type cake (especially for Groom’s cakes) is:

Chocolate Heaven: A rich dark chocolate cake filled with dark chocolate ganache and raspberry filling, topped with the most fabulous dark chocolate ganache buttercream.





Traditional Fruit: A comfortable butter cake with fresh fruit puree (strawberry or raspberry) topped with vanilla buttercream.


Hot Chocolate Cake: Moist butter cake with swirls of cinnamon filled with cinnamon dark chocolate ganache covered in dark chocolate ganache buttercream


Strawberry Grand Marnier Cake: Vanilla butter cake filled with fresh strawberry puree and a delicious Grand Marnier Buttercream.


Lemon Raspberry Explosion: Fresh lemon cake with raspberry puree and the sweet taste of lemon buttercream.


A Lemon Fanatic:  Lemon cake filled with tangy lemon curd and topped with a lemon buttercream.


Coffee after Five: A deep, dark chocolate mocha cake lightly brushed with hazelnut liqueur and filled with a light mocha mousse.


Chocolate Chambord Cake: Chocolate cake lightly brushed with Chambord liqueur and filled with a whipped dark chocolate ganache.


Perfectly Pumpkin:  Pumpkin spice cake is complimented by a rich pumpkin mousse and then finished off with a sinful cream cheese frosting.
