I am having DW and will not be able to do a cake tasting. I’m thinking of a three tier with fondant outer layering. I also don’t care for much cake, so I hardly ever eat it anywhere. What is the best flavor and/or combinations for outer layer, actual cake, and fillings? Help!

I love anything with mango! I’ve had some really good ones with vanilla cake and mango/passionfruit filling
I just went the safe route, and ordered white cake with regular white fondant, vanilla cake, and french cream with strawberries in the middle (so it’s more like whipped cream than pudding). I did get to try it, though, so I know it’s good.

I love chocolate (semi-dark) and lemon frosting.

Most people seem to love red velvet but for us a surprisingly popular flavor was a yellow cake with a pineapple cream cheese mousse. The chocolate with chocolate mousse and Bailey’s infusion was also pretty yummy.

You could ask 10 different people and get 10 different answers. 🙂 It’s all personal preference. Whatever you and your fiance like is what you should order. Be sure to let people know if it contains nuts or other common allergens, though. You don’t want anyone reaching for an epi pen. That’s not to say you shouldn’t order a cake with nuts if you love it, just communicate with your guests about it to prevent allergic reactions.

We had lemon cake with raspberry filling and chocolate cake with Bavarian crème filling. BOTH were to die for!

We’re doing one tier of chocolate cake with layers of peanut butter buttercream and dark cholocate ganache (this was a peace offering to my FI who wanted an Italian Bakery cake with cannoli filling, yuck).
Other tiers are champagne cake with layers of raspberry buttercream and ganache. It’s all so delish I could squeal. Sugar Flower Cake Shop is doing our cake. They specialize in gorgeous cakes trimmed with hand-painted gumpaste flowers and NO FONDANT.

You can never go wrong with a white cake with some type of yummy fruit filling. Raspberry, lemon, strawberry, etc.
That would be pretty popular with most people. If you had to pick one flavor I would do white with some type of fruit filling!
Otherwise here are some more options:
Chocolate with….chocolate filling, peanut butter filling (watch out for allergies), baileys, vanilla fillings.
Also lemon cake is pretty popular.
I’m not a fan of red velvet. Aside from the bottle of dye you throw into it…there’s nothing special about it for me.
I’m doing white cake with raspberry filling and coconut cake with lemon filling.
