Two things that you should expect from your baker when ordering a cake: a well executed design and taste! I talk about the design of our cakes all the time, so let’s talk a little bit about buttercream flavor…
Here at the bakery we make something called a Swiss meringue buttercream. It is light and fluffy and made with butter, pasteurized egg whites and sugar. Then we flavor according to what the client wants.
When we meet with our clients we present an array of flavors for them to try. Like the outside of the cake, the inside can be just as customized and we hope our clients take the plunge and create a more flavorful “dessert” than just vanilla cake with vanilla filling. (Although that combo is very delicious, it is very expected.) Some of our clients come in with a favorite dessert in mind. We deconstruct the dessert and build it back up in the cake.
Some of the “dessert” flavors we have created for clients:
“Almond Joy Cake” Almond Cake, Coconut Buttercream with Dark Chocolate Ganache.
“Pumpkin Pie Cake” Vanilla Cake, alternating layers of Pumpkin and Vanilla Bean Buttercreams.
“Key Lime Pie Cake” Vanilla Cake, alternating layers of Key Lime and White Chocolate Buttercreams.
Don’t forget to have fun with flavors, desserts are most memorable when they are unique and delicious…
