Okay Bee’s. So I want to have a really unique cake and am blessed to have a family friend who owns a bakery and is doing my cake SUPER cheap and letting me doing any of the cakes that she offers. However, since we want more original flavors (not just chocolate, yellow or white) I am not sure what is most popular. We are having a 4 tier cake and each tier will be a different flavor. Please select your top flavor and however majority lines up is what I am going with for our tiers!
I will NOT do more than one tier of these “plain” flavors but I will consider doing one tier if people prefer this.
Hawaiian Passion (white cake with passion fruit)
Irish Coffee (yellow cake with Bailey’s Irish Cream)
I can also pick the following fillings: Tell me which fillings you think would go good with each cake…

I looooove yellow cake. Given the option between yellow cake and any other, fancier flavor, I’ll pick yellow every time.

@mepayne: I know that a lot of people love yellow (white or chocolate) cake and I am okay with doing one layer with this flavor for people who prefer it. But overall, I want to have an original wedding cake!

I voted Irish Coffee because I love bailey’s! But for another layer I would think Raspberry filling would be NOM… Raspberry would go well with the basics, and also with Italian cream, Lemon, and funfetti 😀

Oh man, I am in a vicious 3 way tie between Carrot, red velvet, and lemon. Also I like the idea of cream cheese filling with the 1st 2, and strawvberry with lemon.That is sooo nice of your famiy friend to do this for you!
P.S. I knew I shouldn’t have opened this becasue now I want to eat cake…

Red velvet with cream cheese is my absolute favorite. We haven’t started our cake selection process yet, but I can almost guarantee that we’ll choose red velvet with cream cheese filling for the majority (if not all) of our cake.
If I had to rank what sounds best to me for 4 different tiers, though, it would be as follows:
– Red velvet with cream cheese
– Dark chocolate with raspberry
– Amaretto with chocolate fudge
– Funfetti with strawberry
That would give your guests a ton of options (plus those all sound delicious). Mmmm … Now I want some cake! Haha.

I voted Irish Coffee, which would probably be best with either cream cheese, or the chocolate. I’d also dig amaretto, or Italian cream. For Italian Creme, I would say a lemon filling. Amaretto, I think, would be best with a coconut, or some sort of “nutty” filling, but since that’s not an option, I would say chocolate.

@Chaoslight: I can ask if she can do a nutty or coconut filling.. She said she was up for anything! Those are just the standard fillings that they usually do.

@Brooklyn55: If she is up for anything I want to change my vote to white with blackberry filling! Yumm it has become my obsession. Blackberry is great pared with lemon, yellow, almond, coconut, white, or spice!
