So, FI and I cannot decide what flavors to put in our cake. We can’t decide what people will like the most. Here’s the choices:
White cake with almond flavoring w/ strawberry filling
White cake with almond flavoring w/ lemon filling
Red velvet cake w/ cream cheese filling
Spice cake w/ cream cheese filling
Marble cake w/ fudge filling
Help us decide!

I’m not sure what kind of spices are in a spice cake, but it’s bound to be good! Mmm cream cheese filling!

How many can you choose? How much do you care about them going together—or can they just be freestanding flavors?
We just did tastings last week and really liked one spice cake with cream cheese option….though not as much as banana cake! I’m also partial to white cake with strawberries, just because it’s so classic. We had one place tell us we should do at least some chocolate cake for chocolate lovers (not us) so we will probably take that to heart. Skipping red velvet, though—I like it fine, but where we live it’s SO overdone right now (literally every place had it on the tasting menu, every place that sells cupcakes has it, etc.—one baker groaned when FI said something about it being on the list, noting that she couldn’t wait till the craze was over!) The red does look beautiful, though!

We can pick 3 flavors. Neither of us like chocolate cake, so the marble with the fudge was our compromise. They don’t have to go together. Not a big deal. My favs are the spice cake, the white/strawberry and the marble/fudge. I’d rather get things that everyone else will love, because any of the choices are good with me.

As long as there’s some chocolate available, I’m good to go. Red velvet is always a crowd pleaser in my experience, and the almond cake sounds pretty darn good. I know my FI would vote for anything with lemon in it.

seems to me that u don’t really need our help the 3 you have chosen seem to cover all bases and if i could chose only 3 those would be the ones… you can’t make everyone happy but that should come pretty close
