Nobody seems to like my cake flavors for my friend’s baby shower. As in my husband and a couple of friends think it’s weird. What does the hive think–am I being too adventurous?
Homemade white cake with confetti sprinkles (blue and pink for a baby shower) with tangerine cream cheese filling and a white vanilla buttercream.
Yay or nay? Should I swap the tangerine for like, lemon or just plain cream cheese?
Darn Martha Stewart and her yummy non conventional ideas
The mom to be’s fave cake is confetti, but damned i’ll be if i make a boxed cake so i’m doing homemade confetti, haha =]

Love it all except for the tangerine part. I think that might be too risky to do without having tried it first. I feel like the tangerine might taste totally awesome, but on the other hand could be totally gross. I’d play it safe and do lemon or plain cream cheese.

Ok the rule is that if you vote it’s weird, you have to make a suggestion. Otherwise you’re no help
Both Darling Husband and friends said to make chocolate. Not helpful since mom to be doesn’t want chocolate
Plus it has to make a 4 hour car ride and the idea of melty stuff like ganache or tiramisu type fillings just won’t survive

Oh i’ll definitely have extra filling stuff on hand in case the tangerine turns out weird. It just sounds so good!
They all said “ick” to lemon, too, by the way
What is up with peoples?!
I like the idea of lavendar-lime but I do think that IS too weird for these people

That sounds delicious. The tangerine is an unconventional choice…but if Martha Stewart is promoting it, it’s probably awesome.

I think you should add something to the poll so it says “Yum. Make it. They’ll eat your words…and your cake!”
And kudos! I’m a from-scratch gal myself, so I completely understand and think it’s a wonderful thing that you’re doing.

I notice you live in the same town as me..soooooo if the girls dont eat it Ill pop you my address and you just give me the rest of the cake because it sounds
But I’m sure it’s going to be a hit and there wont be any for me

Just a thought… what if you make your delicious cake, and then a smaller one for the chocolate/picky people like this beauty:
hazelnut brown butter cake

@lilyfaith, considering I’m making fondant baby zoo animals to top the cake, I think I’m maxed out on cake capabilities for next week =]
Plus there will only be like, 12 of us. Otherwise I’d be all ABOUT more cake!
