Start with a sweeter cake flavour such as the raspberry/white chocolate and honeycomb or pecan/maple and follow up with a zesty/citrus flavour such as the lemon or lime/coconut milk/passionfruit. Finish on the two chocolates.

Some notes on the flavours;

1) Raspberry, white chocolate and honeycomb

no problem to add some raspberry conserve here if you feel there is not enough raspberry coming true.

cake is just straight lemon.

3) Pecan and Maple

really popular - again crunchy pieces are the pecan praline.

4) Lime, Coconut Milk and Passion Fruit

11) Fruit cake

12) Chocolate Biscuit

We include 4 types of chocolate in our biscuit cake and feel it has the right amount of biscuit to chocolate.

13) Lemon, Fennel & Ginger

A nice alternation to lemon with the liqourice fennel and ginger.

14) Spiced Orange

One of my favourites and especially at Christmas with the spiced cardamon and cinnamon with zesty orange.

15) Chestnut, Praline & Caramel

Another nice seasonal flavour to have at Christmas, with the savoury chestnut cake being a lovely contrast to the sweet buttercream.

3 flavours if you are having a 4 tier cake or 2 flavours if you are having a 3 tier cake. This will provide an equal(ish) amount of each flavour. Each cake tier will have 4 layers of cake and 3 layers of fillings, so there is plenty of flavour running though the portion. It is always nice to have contrasting flavours and from experience the guys tend to like the chocolatey, sweet flavours and the ladies the fruity, zesty cakes.
