We are about to meet with our baker now.
We are using 3 cake flavors, one for each tier: red velvet with Oreo filling, pumpkin with cannoli cream filling, and lemon with raspberry (or strawberry… Haven’t decided! thoughts?) Filling.
which do you think should be the biggest tier ?
all will have buttercream icing

however, i would like some oreo filling

@hollyberry4: I know a lot of people who do not like red velvet and will not eat it, so I would make that your smallest (even though I adore it)!
I think pumpkin would be a great choice since your wedding is October.
But the most general flavor that people would like the best I think is the lemon with raspberry/strawberry filling.

I voted for red velvet with oreo filling.

I was thinking lemon as biggest, then red velvet, then pumpkin. FI is in love with the pumpkin, and I love lemon! I usually don’t like red velvet because I despise cream cheese frosting but this one is delish with the oreo filling and buttercream. However, I think it might be too heavy for a main tier?
any opinions on lemon/strawberry versus lemon/raspberry?

Also, my family says the lemon should be the smallest because “no one likes lemon.” They always get double chocolate everthing though so I probably should not listen to them!

I voted for red velvet/oreo filling before I actually read your question. I think lemon should be the largest tier because that will probably have more general appeal.
For some reason, lemon/raspberry sounds a bit better to me than lemon/strawberry.

What about jam sponge or a chocolate layer? Maybe I am just boring but none of those tiers sound that appetizing to me. But they seem interesting and it could work.
I vote the lemon layer.

Red velvet…then pumpkin, then lemon. I don’t like fruity fillings AT ALL.
i’m surprised that people say that a lot of people don’t like red velvet considering it’s just red colored chocolate cake lol

I think both red velvet and lemon sound delicious… but I have a feeling that a lot of people would prefer red velvet. So I’d choose that one for the largest tier.

@hollyberry4: I voted for lemon, but honestly I love almost all cake and would totally eat any of those flavors. 🙂

@IzzyBear: agreed! I hate the cream cheese but I LOVe the cake part!

I voted lemon! My second choice would be pumpkin, but I dislike cannoli. I hate red velvet. I like really chocolatey chocolate if I go that route, and most red velvet is like a weird kind of chocolate.
But if you put any in front of me I’d eat the whole thing.

Lemon cake is my favourite flavour so I obviously voted for that! I would go lemon, then red velvet, then pumpkin. They all sound amazing, though. *Drool*
