Blending chocolate needs some experience and knowledge of the chocolate tastes. One must understand how a process affects the flavor of the chocolate. The effects produced by the variety of cocoa beans and the temperature are all unique. Even the fat content in the cream, the type of sugar, the thickness of ganache play their role. The bean or the powder used for chocolate flavor when processed with the different process gives a different taste to the cake. For great combinations, you must understand how a particular flavor of chocolate is derived. The rich roast to caramel aroma it is all derived from the same cocoa bean by using slow and designed process. As the beans ferment and roast, the flavors develop and result in a rather delicious roasty and caramel aromas we want.

Different type of outcome is achieved from various combinations. Let's take a look at some of the blends:
Caramel and Chocolate Combinations
Chocolate works great with sweeter chocolate add-ins, like honey and caramel. For adding them in the combination, we give the preference to a dark chocolate base. The dreamy, silky texture of caramel with chocolate is nothing short of ecstasy. Chocolate and Caramel are one of the best combinations for kids birthday cakes. Milk chocolate and caramel taste great together. Still, the caramel combination is perfected only by dark chocolate. The purpose is to produce an optimal balance of sweet and bitter, without being overwhelmingly sugared out. The salted caramel cake has a delicious texture dimension in our cake sponge or topping. This classic chocolate cake flavor combination is the most loved and is considered as the best cake in Melbourne for any special celebrations.
Chocolate and Fruit
We all might have considered the chocolate covered strawberries and treasure them for the rich fruity blessing with chocolate. But have you found the chocolate dipped pears and mangoes? Well, they are next in line to fall for. The secret is about knowing how and which fruit pairs best with which type of chocolate - and in this case opposites attract! As a general rule, the darker the chocolate, the bitter the taste, so for dark chocolate it must be complemented with something sweet.
For this reason, we combine dark chocolates with strawberries, pears, and mangos. On the other hand, white chocolate blend with fruits that have a higher acidity or milder flavor. The fruits such as tart berries, mild melons, and passion fruit are perfect as white chocolate is already rich and sweet. Regardless of the combination, there is no dispute that one of the very best chocolate cake flavor combinations is fruity.

The old civilizations have blended the chocolate with the red chili pepper, as certain spices can improve the chocolate experience. The chili chocolate is universally available, and it gives a great boost to our taste buds. One may play with lavender, cardamom, Cinnamon, Lemongrass, Mint and even green tea. These combinations are well-loved by people and make the cakes exquisite. Most of these spices are blend in the ganache while heating. But they also blend in the cake sponge mix.

Tea, Coffee and Chocolate Combinations
The most obvious pairing of chocolate goes with coffee. It can consist of a blend of both smooth and bold flavors that go well together when paired right. Opposite to fruits, darker chocolates blend well with darker and bolder roasts like Italian coffee. On the other side, milk chocolate does best with a medium roast. You can blend coffee into all parts of your chocolate cake. The sponge to buttercream and frosting to decorations can have a pinch of coffee. In fact, a little coffee in all the above further intensifies the chocolate flavors.
