New Years Eve

I know it's just a tad bit early to be thinking about New Years Eve, but just doing a little bit of pre-planning. Since Jake and I have been dating, we've thrown a NYE party every year; this will be our 3rd annual celebration.

In the past I've always had a smorgasbord of finger foods, both savory and sweet. This year I want to try something different. I've been wanting to try my hand at making a tiered cake, but haven't had the chance to. I think my debut will be NYE 2010. This is my inspiration from Pink Cake Box in NJ:

The only think that I would do differently is frost the cake entirely in swiss buttercream (they used fondant).

Anyone have flavor suggestions?

  1. I was watching Giuliana & Bill last night (I know, I'm lame) and they were re-doing their wedding and had a cake that was cream cheese buttercream on the outside, banana cake, and peanut butter filling. Sounds good to me! I LOVE the banana cake from Beaverton Bakery (one of the flavors at our wedding).
    Whatever you do, I think buttercream is so much better than fondant. Good choice!
