After watching on of Paula Deen's thanksgiving shows, where she made a
Pumpkin version, I realized that I could have fun developing new flavors.
Well, since I'm in Culinary school now, I decided to take a few of them in
to class Monday. One of the students that is graduating soon asked me
about developing a few for their graduation party, sure, why not. Okay,
the theme of the party is Polynesian. Bout the only 3 flavors I associate
with that theme are Pinapple, Coconut & Banana, some Searching yeilded
Papaya as one too. Now Pinapple and Papaya are pretty wet fruits, so I
don't know how well they'd do in this application. Macadamia was also
suggested, but I don't know what would be a good flavor to pair it up with.
So, any suggestions of flavors? I'll share the recipes when I get them

I'm gonna try
"Dark Chocolate w/ Coconut & Macadamias"
and maybe "Papaya Strawberry"
I think... Depends on what the "client" thinks of those ideas.

Great to know. They picked:
Pineapple Coconut which I'll make two variations of, one iwth Pinapple
Supreme and one with Coconut Supreme.
Orange Mango which I'll use a yellow mix on...
Dark Chocolate Macadamia w/ Coconut: devils food cake base. I'm also using
the Special Dark Cocoa.

Actually, the solution, based on Paula Dean's recipe in the Lady & Son's
Cookbook is a 3rd egg in the filling. Guess it adds enough emulsifers to
set the filling up.
I'll start working on the first batch tonight or tomorrow.
would make a custard from pineapple juice, an egg, cornstarch and alittle milk - cook until thickened and let cool. I would spread thatover the basic cake recipe and then add a layer of pineapple coatedwith pineapple preserves - chill - and then before serving, top withwhipped cream, toasted coconut, and chopped macadamias.
