Firstly, theres nothing wrong with classic flavours when they're done right, but to answer your question, I'd suggest looking at current dessert trends for timely inspiration. Some suggestions might include miso infused caramel or ganache, black sesame, yuzu curd etc. Adding textures and fresh or caramelised fruits is a simple way to elevate otherwise classic flavours without potentially polarising your guests with unusual flavour combinations. For instance, crushed hazelnut praline and hot fudge sauce can elevate a simple chocolate cake. Another example is when I use baked cheesecake layers inside my cakes. People are always surprised and delighted by this simple fusion of cake and dessert.

Hey, One of our very popular and very unique flavours is the Persian love cake. This cake is made with an almond base, flavoured with cardamon and lemon and layered with fig syrup, rose water, greek yogurt and pistachio nuts. It's very delicious.
