New Flavors!

And an old one revisited!

Tonight I dreamt up a new flavor: Cherry Sunrise.  The cake is my go-to vanilla recipe, with an added twist of grenadine and maraschino cherries that were put in a food processor and mixed into the batter.  The frosting is orange buttercream with orange soda and a little orange zest, swirled with a little orange and red food coloring to make the prettiest “sunrise” effect (the picture really doesn’t do it justice).

Also on tonight’s list: Banana Cream Pie!  Well, in a cupcake, of course 🙂  It’s a banana cake with a banana pudding filling.  Topped with a vanilla whipped frosting, crushed graham crackers and a mini Nilla wafer. They came out even prettier than I planned (love it when that happens!)! 🙂

And finally, an old favorite revisited: Lemon Berry.  This time, a slightly tweaked lemon cake with a perfected blueberry frosting, topped with a little yellow icing flower and yellow sugar.  Much better!
