Help me with this cake

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

I want to make a cake but I don't know if it will taste good, so I need your opinion.

Vanilla sponge cake with coffee syrup filled with a mixture of custard cream, whipped cream and orange zest. I will decorate the cake with whipped cream, strawberries and chocolate flakes. What do you think of the flavors?

Not the flavor combo I would ever enjoy but then I am not you.

Experiment and report back.

So what flavour combo can you suggest me?

I think it sounds like a good experiment, though I would personally drop one of the three flavors - coffee, orange, or strawberry.  Just seems like it might be to many fighting for attention in the final product.

 

I personally love oranges and strawberry.  I will sometimes macerate strawberries in orange juice, maybe a bit of orange liqueur, then use the liquid to moisten the genoise and fill the middle with the strawberries.

To me the strawberry is the odd man out.

Too sweet too juicy and the tiny bit of acid it brings too prominent (or of the wrong type).

Confuses the palate.... :laser:

Coffee and chocolate and orange make a great marriage and not one I would turn down if offered.

instead of the strawberry for garnish. Roast a few coffee beans and double dip them in chocolate.
