I love Funfetti! I’ve never seen it for a wedding. If that’s what you want, then I say go for it

Just try some samples with your baker!

I don’t really like the idea of a funfetti cake (it’s pretty dry, I like my cake MOIST), but if you do, go for it!

Are you going to make the cake yourself?

I just swtich to doing a cake buffet 5 weeks before the wedding so I’ve been looking at flavors non stop. We’re also distant planning so friends of ours went on our cake tasting as they were in town on vacation. Anywayyy they LOVED a hazelnut cake with hazelnut frosting. Not sure if this is unique, our previous cake arrangement didn’t have a tasting so I’d never tried flavors. Other interesting cake flavors on the list included almond & lemon.

If you’re thinking of doing it yourself I’d peruse some baking blogs and see what you think looks good and do some trial runs! You have time and there’s no way to know what you’ll like and how sucessful it’ll be without trying it!

I have made a few two and three tier cakes for friends. One of the cakes I made was for my sister-in-laws baby shower. It was the first fancy cake I made and she wanted funfetti. The problem with the funfetti is that when you go to layer it and decorate it, it is very fragile and does not hold up well. In the end I made it work.

However, the next cake I made I used the dense up cake recipe and it made the cakes waaaaaaaaaaaay easier to use and decorate and even more moist.

This is the cake i made with the funfetti. You can see where it kind of sags a bit and where i had to piece it together. I’ve never had that problem once I started to use the dense cake recipe.

have you considered multiple flavors?  My FH loves (and will only eat) yellow cake with chocolate frosting…  I’m more into carrot cake with cream cheese frosting.  So, for our wedding, we’re having 3 different 9in cakes in 3 different flavors.  One for me, one for him and a fancy one (probably with some fruity filling) for more adventurous guests!  Nothing says you can’t have a few different cakes.

Another idea is that you can make a simple, fancy cake for cutting… then serve sheet cake to the guests.  This was our plan – when we were considering baking the cakes ourselves.
