PositiveThinking:  Will there be any filling? What type of frosting or icing are you having?

A friend had a vanilla cake with a blueberry filing that was absolutely delicicious.

Good vanilla cake is always better than “exciting” flavors that are only okay. Plus I agree with the baker, most people will eat vanilla.

As long as it’s tasty, people will enjoy it.

What about a champagne infused vanilla cake? I’ve heard of it a few times…could make for a great twist! But if not, I love vanilla, and tend to pick that over any other flavor since it’s safe when at parties.

PositiveThinking:  If the vanilla cake was tasty, then I think your guests will be happy with it too.

were doing vanilla with bavarian cream layered on raspberry filling and buttercream icing between the fondant and cake. It is absolutely sublime, and i bake/decorate cakes for a living!

PositiveThinking:  I think vanilla cake is the best cake in the universe, so my answer is a bit biased, lol. It is not too boring, it is delicious!

I think vanilla cake is a grest option. I swear at every wedding I have been to the fancy cake options go untouched. Everyone wants vanilla or chocolate. We are doing cupcakes in vanilla, chocolate, and red velvet. Gotta keep it simple In my opinion.
