Why These Flavors Work

Vanilla is a flavor that goes very well with practically anything, since it is more of a neutral background flavor that works as an enhancer. Strawberries and cream, in this case mascarpone, are a classic flavor composition, since the tartness of a strawberry is offset by the richness of the dairy component. The crème fraîche cake is a textural component more than a flavor.
