Our flavors are as follows:

Almond Cake with Apricot filling and Vanilla filling

Chocolate Cake with Chocolate Mousse filling and Raspberry filling

Carrot Cake with Grand Marnier wash and Grand Marnier filling

I love chocolate … so there had to be a chocolate option, fiance loooved the carrot cake and I typically hate it, but I really liked it … and I wanted a “neutral” option … and the baker told me that the (first flavor combo) is actually her most popular. So those are our flavors!

P.S. I would be in heaven with #5

We did three flavors:

1. Yellow cake with regular buttercream (b/c I’m boring)

2. Lemon cake with raspberry filling (b/c Darling Husband is slightly less boring)

3. Chocolate with chocolate filling (b/c who doesn’t like chocolate!)

For your options, I would pick: 1, 2, & 5

Honestly, I joke that I’m boring, but I feel like keeping flavors simple (maybe only one type of filling per tier) might work better.  Some people are adventurous about cake, but usually people have particular preferences…and if there isn’t anything “plain” they might just not want cake at all.  And you don’t want leftover cake to deal with…I also think that up to 3 is a good number.  It’s still reasonable that couples can, say, take a bite of each other’s and have sampled most of the options.

I love chocolate … =) I actually thought everyone loved chocolate like I do … until I met fiance. He is coming around and will nibble on my “treasure chest” of chocolate – to my DISMAY … lol … but lots of his family do not like chocolate too. So I knew I needed a neutal alternative. To me, carrot cake is a taste that you either love or hate … not everyone likes it. So that’s how I have 3 flavors =)

Marigold … I have always HATED carrot cake and would never eat it. When I tried this … I was so shocked and in love at the same time.
