One of the things I am looking forward to the most in planning is cake tasting! I am plain and am doing the big tier as vanilla, but I am thinking of adding in at least one more fun flavor. I love hearing what has been popular at others weddings. What flavors did you have? Did they go over well with the guests? Any comments on a unique flavor that you’d liek to share with the hive?

I think we’re going to be doing half mexican chocolate and half banana. I know, banana is pretty weird, but it was one of the few details that my fiance was really excited about. So, if it gets some enthusiasm out of him about wedding planning, he can have as much banana cake as he wants.

Banana is something different, but sounds so delicious! I’d love to hear how it turns out!

We’re having a white cake with two different fillings. Two layers will have fudge and two layers will have cannoli filling. It’s soooo delicious.

I’m not a huge cake fan, so I let the FH make the call on that. We wound up going boring. White for the traditional tiered cake to feed about half the guests, and chocolate cupcakes for the balance. Lots of kiddos at the wedding, so we’re hoping the cupcakes will make them happy!

We’re not sure yet, but a lemon cake with raspberry or strawberry filling sounds looovely.

Probably a layer of chocolate and a layer of vanilla, but I think we’re both seriously hoping we can do banana. We have enough guests that three tiers should be no problem…really simple, I guess, but so yummy.

All I know is it will have fondant on the outside! I am a fondant girl. Love its ability to become anything you imagine. I love the creatiity of a fondant cake. When it comes time for cake testing, T will love to sample. He’s one of those guys who can eat and eat and never gain a darn pound! I call it his man-tabolism. lol!
As a wedding guest, there’s nothing better imho than vanilla or almond cake. I love raspberry filling inbetween. And I enjoy the groom’s cake and all it’s chocolate gooey goodness!

Oooh! These cakes all sound so yummy! I am really struggling on what to do. My FI is allergic to Dairy, Eggs, and nuts, so I have to be really carefull what I choose. There is a place here in Portland, OR that sells vegan cakes, but they are super expensive and I’m not sure how much decorating they are capeable of.

We are having a croquembouche. We know that it might not be to everyone’s taste, but we are also having a dessert buffet with all kinds of tasty treats so everyone will have something sweet to eat.
