Unexpected Flavors

After doing some browsing on Pinterest for fun things to bake, I came across a bunch of cake recipes that weren't your typical chocolate, vanilla, etc. These cakes were paired with equally unexpected flavors of frosting. I've never tried baking with super adventurous flavors (the only time I ever did was when I made a Pink Champagne Cake), so I'm interested in trying a few of these to see what they taste like!
