After our first cake testing we decided we really liked two kinds:
—amaretto cake w/raspberry filling
—lemon cake w/raspberry filling
However, we are now onto cake testing #2 so we can choose two MORE flavors. Here is what we are going to be tasting in the coming week:
- <div align=”left”>Orange w/white chocolate ganache (orange sicle)
- <div align=”left”>Brownie w/caramel (on half) & peanut butter (on half)
- <div align=”left”>Cream soda w/strawberry (on half) & apricot (on half)*
- <div align=”left”>Butter w/sweetened cream cheese & dark chocolate ganache (together)**
- <div align=”left”>Maple w/vanilla
*We wanted to try half with the white chocolate ganache but our lady said that since we were already trying that filling that we should try something else and just mix the cream soda cake with the orange cake’s filling
**This is SUPPOSED to taste like Boston Cream Pie but we shall see. I love it but, again, I wanted to try butter cake with just sweetened cream cheese but our lady didn’t like that idea because we tried that filling during out first cake test. Like I can remember that!!
What do you guys think? What looks the best? Thanks for your help, Bees!

Good Lord! Talk about making a tough decision!!!
Other than #3, they all sound good to me.
If you MADE ME choose- #2 and #5, but #4 sounds good too.

If you can’t choose between the flavors, ask if your cake can be two flavors. Our bakery is allowing us to have two flavors for our cake (the two smaller layers will be one flavor and the largest layer the other).
Tough choices! However, I’m a chocolate fiend, so #4 for me.

We’ve already chosen 2 of our four flavors and we are maxing them out at 4. However, we have to have enogh cake to feed 250 so that’s why we’re allowed 4 different flavors.
PLUS I have to choose a "secret" flavor for my FI for his groom’s cake!

Well, since your first two choices are both fruity… my picks would definitely by #2 and #4. I think that gives people a realllllllllly wide choice to pick from.
Yikes, I don’t know how I would choose! I think overall if I were one of your guests I’d pick… #4! MMMM… they all sound yummy.

Have them all!!!
We had a four tier cake with a different flavor and filling on each tier (at no extra cost). Our guests loved having the choice and every tier was delicious! If your baker is worth his/her salt, he/she should be able to accomodate. Good luck – they all sound delicious!

Tough choices. See my hubby and I are simple either chocolate or vanilla really (no pun intended) I would say #2 or #5 Maple and Vanilla together are the perfect combination of sweetness
