So I’ve mentioned here and there that we’re having a 3-tier hazelnut mud cake with chocolate ganache for our wedding *drool* but I now I find myself toying with the idea of having other flavours as well.
On the off chance that my fiance realises we’ll probably only have one slice between us anyway, what other two flavours would you choose?

I LOVE chocolate but if you’re going to mix it up I’d choose something subtle and/or fresh like coconut, lemon or vanilla.

I’m a huge cake fan but um, what is a mud cake? Is it like a dense cake? Also, by rainbow do you mean different layers of colours or rainbow sprinkles?

I cannot eat hazelnut at all, so I would love another option, German chocolate or red velvet are both yummy options!

I voted for white with berries and lemon. Those combined with your other 2 flavors is a wide variety that should suit most people.

@ChicFoodist: A mud cake is most commonly a rich chocolate cake… but seeing as they’re so many flavours of mud (which I didn’t know existed), I think it’s safe to assume that ‘mud’ can also mean dense (like you said) or very rich..
Rainbow cake might be just white cake but with different food colourings added and swirled together, or, layers of different colours as you said.

@jlc3: Ah yes, good point… I completely forgot to consider that some people might have a nut allergy. Will have to tell the fiance and see what he thinks now!

@ChicFoodist: Mud cake is a really dense and rich cake, with one of the main ingredients being melted chocolate usually. If it’s a lighter mud flavou. (Caramel/honeycomb etc) white chocolate is used, and if it’s a darker flavour, milk or dark chocolate is used. Super delicious, and you only need a small piece to reach caked-out bliss!
(I do a lot of baking).

OK I really want some cake now too.
I picked lemon and red velvet- both lighter flavors to balance out the hazlenut mud and the chocolate ganache *drool*

@ksus07: I made a wedding cake recently where two of the tiers where choc hazelnut mud with choc ganache and the other was white choc mud. That went down very well! I love berries with white choc cakes – the tartness of raspberry etc offsets the sweetness of white chocolate. And I think a non-chocolate flavour is always good as well in case you do get the odd person who doesn’t eat it. I think either lemon or coconut is good. We are actually having for our cake:
Tier 1 – Choc Hazelnut mud with Choc Ganache filling
Tier 2 – White Choc mud — contemplating with a baileys butter cream filling
Tiers 3 and 4 – Coconut cake with a raspberry buttercream filling
