    We did cupcakes as well, and went with I think 6 different flavors?  Definitely get your red velvet, and definitely a chocolate, and probably a vanilla in case some guests’ tastes are a bit simpler.  Do a fun flavor (carrot, mint, raspberry or strawberry, etc) if you end up being able to choose more than 3 flavors.

    Ooh, so for a non-chocolate, I love the combination of a vanilla cake with an almond frosting. The chocolate cake with raspberry filling also sounds scrumptious! Ya can’t really go wrong with cake, afterall.

    I voted for red velvet with cream cheese, vanilla with strawberry, and my all time fave is chocolate with hazelnut.

    I’m not a big fan of whipped cream, so even though I LOVE anything chocolate I wouldn’t choose that one – could you choose a layer with chocolate cake with raspberry filling and buttercream frosting, or another flavor of frosting, instead?

    I also voted for red velvet w/ cream cheese frosting, and carrot cake w/ cream cheese frosting…But only after doing a taste test – dried out carrot cake isn’t good, so if you can’t do a tasting, vanilla cake is a safer bet.

    Haha we actually had that same combination – chocolate cake with raspberry filling, red velvet with cream cheese frosting, and a small top layer of carrot cake with cream cheese frosting, and we got a lot of compliments, so those flavors went over really well with our guests.

    @vorpalette:  What about vanilla cake with raspberry filling and whipped topping?  Oh, and make sure the raspberry filling has the seeds removed because some people with gastro issues cannot eat the seeds.

    I meant the vanilla cake with filling instead of the chocolate since you already have red velvet which is flavored with cocoa.

    @vorpalette:  Ohh okay totally understand. I hope she can make you some samples, and hopefully she’ll make homemade whipped cream, that is so much better than Cool Whip!

    I’m more traditional when it comes to what kind of cake I like. I think I would like the red velvet and the vanilla with strawberry frosting. I like carrot cake, but hate that nuts, and I really hate chocolate with fruit, so that means the chcoolate with raspberry filling would be out for me.

    The only thing I’d warn you about is, whipped cream frosting needs to be stabilized (usually with gelatin) if it is going to look good through a wedding and not collapse into a mess. I would just make sure they’re going to do it that way.  It may sound obvious but I’ve seen it happen.

    I’m a total picky cupcake (and every other food) eater. I will confess it up front. I am not a big fan of cream cheese, whipped cream or nut flavoured (hazelnut, almond, etc) desserts. 

    Maybe an option could be just a basic vanilla or chocolate with vanilla buttercream for the picky eaters. Since you are doing a red velvet anyway, you could do another “fun” flavour like carrot cake, or the chocolate with raspberry and whipped then one basic one.
