Special Occasion Cake
by: Michelle (editor)

Hi Jessica,

Here's a few tips for very special occasion cakes:

1. Layer the flavors - don't just pick one flavor for cake and one for filling. Layer several complimentary flavors together. Here's on of my favorites:

Perfect Lemon Cake with whipped cream frosting, white chocolate and lemon curd filling. Paint melted white chocolate onto each cut surface of the cake layers before you assemble the cake, then stack - cake layer, whipped cream frosting, lemon curd, another cake layer. Continue stacking in this order until all layers have been used.

As far as decoration goes, if there is some activity that you two love to do together, that would make a good theme for the cake, e.g. tennis, video games, whatever.

If I can help with any specific theme ideas, feel free to ask more questions.

Hope this has helped. Happy baking!

Regards,
Michelle (editor)
