We are doing one flavor, and it is a weird one, but hey, that’s ok!
It’s a cappucino cake with marzipan frosting. Mmmm!

 

We picked one because my family isn’t really a dessert family, but also we’re indecisive and tend to want “one of each” — easier to just not have to make them decide between two flavors.

For 40, Just do one. The only time I really advocate 2+ is if it’s large and or you really want a “picky” kind of flavor like carrot cake…

We did 1 flavor. Whenever I have been to wedding where the cake is more than 1 flavor it seems to add confusion as to which guests wants which flavor. We kept it simple and did chocolate with rasberry filling.

Our baker and friend of the family suggested we have only 1 flavor so that people don’t eat twice the amount of cake to try them all. This also keeps it simple in terms of avoiding confusion about who wants which flavor. All of our 4 tiers will be chocolate bottom layer and vanilla top layer with a chocolate filling and buttercream icing. I like this because it’s 2 flavors in 1.

The baker contracted with my venue is pretty gungho about keeping it one flavor to keep all the guests pleased.

I would probably go with just chocolate. It tastes good with raspberry!

We’re doing cupcakes, but doing two flavors.  Surprising as it is, I don’t like chocolate, and I’ve been to a lot of events where that was the only option.  We’re doing these awesome raspberry and mango cupcakes, plus chocolate dipped fruit, so everyone can have something they like.

But 40 is pretty small.  If you knew that a good percentage of your guests don’t like chocolate, then I’d maybe do a second flavor, but that probably isn’t the case.

The bottom layer will be white cake with a strawberry filling and the other 2 layers will be yellow cake with raspberry filling.  When I think of cutting into a wedding cake, I picture white cake.  That is the only reason the bottom layer is different!

As I am making my own cake I am having many flavors. I love cake! If I was purchasing one though I would stick with just one. 40+ is a small number and I would hate to throw away cake I paid good money for. Guests are already fighting about who gets my leftover cake though so might not be a problem for you either 🙂

Yes, do another flavor.  Some people don’t like chocolate (a shame! I know!) or can’t eat it.

I will be having 3 flavours.

Our biggest layer will be vanilla and then the other two will be chocolaty.
