To B or not to B

I went to my friend's going away party on the weekend and i offered to make the dessert. I made two different types of cakes. The top cake is a vanilla cake with whipped cream and strawberries in the middle, covered with buttercream and strawberries. The B is fondant. The bottom layer is chocolate w/ a hint of almond, chocolate ganache in the middle and then covered in chocolate buttercream. Everyone loved the cakes and so did i. My husband loved the vanilla cake and he's not much of a vanilla fan. I also played with the recipes a bit to make them a bit more dense. I used less liquid and added one more egg and it worked out well. Most of my cakes are moist which is great but i'd like to be able to use the same recipes for cutting them into shapes. I think i made it work!
