    i think vanilla with lemon would be best- not alot of people like chocolate or lemon. the vanilla will be a great neutral flavor. the lemon curd will not be over powering( was at a baby shower couple weeks ago and the had lemon cake with lemon curd it was TOOOO SWEET. many of the slices of cake went un eaten by guests…

    I’d probably keep it simple and just pick another tier of my favorite flavor — so the lemon and raspberry in your case! Especially as you know it’ll be delish. 🙂

    We had a 3-tier cake and chose for the top and bottom layers to be the same.  So, SHOCKER, that’s what I recommend.  😉

    We have JUST gone through this ourselves! We will have the bottom and top tier be the same. Red velvet in our case with lemon in the middle tier.
