Hello All you wonderful people!
I Have a customer who wants a pear cake, and I just cannot find anything that I could use. Its intended for a birthday cake so it needs to have strength and be stackable, but it needs to taste good. My first thoughts were to use just a basic white cake with a pear filling but then it occured to me that the pear might be too soupy and would aborb into my cakes and make them soggy.
Another thought I had was that often times some people (nobody I know) would substitute applesauce into their cake and I know the texture of that applesauce would be similar if I were to make 'pear-sauce'
Any thoughts or ideas here?
