We’re doing white cake with raspberry filling and buttercream frosting for 2 layers and strawberry cake with fresh strawberries in the middle with buttercream frosting for the other 2 layers. Then my FH is doing a groomscake which is red velvet cake with buttercream frosting. SO YUMMY!!!! Honestly I’m not big on wedding cake, but our baker is fantastic and I couldn’t be more excited about our cake and our flavors.

I have to admit, I’ve never had marzipan before :[ I wish I could help you there!

Have tons of fun tasting cake!! You’ll have a great time!!

were having french vanilla with espresso filling and buttercream.  honestly I would have loved something with lemon.  I also liked plain old chocolate, also armatto, almond (well.. marizpan).

We had two layers.  One was lemon cake with raspberry filling and a buttercream frosting, and the other layer was chocolate cake with raspberry filling and a buttercream frosting.  They were DELICIOUS.

I think we’re having four flavors, a different one in each tier. One is white chocolate cake with dark chocolate mousse, the next is green tea cake (sounds weird but it’s goood) with vanilla cream, next is dark chocolate cake with hazelnut mousse, and the last is chocolate cake and pistachio cake with chocolate mousse in the middle.

We also tried almond cake, which was really yummy.

you have to try poppy seed cake with raspberry filling and just a creamy frosting! i’m telling you, it’s to die for! but i couldn’t use it cause the poppy seeds, fh is in the military and super paranoid about showing positive for opiates.. lame!

I think we are going to do different flavors for each layer.

My mom and i were talking about my cousins wedding the other day and the only thing we could remember is how horrible her strawberry cake was. My dad overheard part of it and was like that cake was HORRIBLE!

 

And my family LOVES dessert- for all holidays & get togethers we dont do dinner we do  a potluck style dessert buffet

Ooh just noticed you’re getting married in July. Since you’re having a summer wedding, I would definitely suggest some sort of cake with a fruit flavor (like raspberry cake or lemon cake) or a fruit filling (like vanilla cake with lemon mousse–yum). I just think fruit-y things in the summer is so refreshing and yummy!

We are huge Key Lime pie fans, so we had a key lime flavored cake. It was awesome. The icing was just buttercream and there was a (more tart) key lime filling in between layers, as well. Delish! I can’t wait to order one every anniversary!

We’re doing french vanilla with french vanilla mousse filling, devils food chocolate with oreo mousse filling, french vanilla with oreo, and devil’s food with cheesecake mousse.  And the grooms cake flavor might be our favorite, it’s Andes mint chocolate. 

Kinda heavy for our June wedding, but it’s all indoors and it’ll be delicious anyhow.

My venue did the exact same thing!! I was so lost – I had to google wedding cake flavors and start from scratch.

We ended up with:

Vanilla-almond cream cake with caramel colored dulce de leche filling and buttery caramel frosting.

I found that description on some website and dulce de leche is my favorite dessert in the whole world and at the tasting it was everyone’s favorite!!

We’re doing a multi layered cake – instead of a wedding cake and a groom’s cake.  The outside will be iced in traditional buttercream, but the inside will be alternating layers of chocolate cake with peanut butter filling and orange cake with fudge filling.  Its AMAZING.  Fiance wantes to order a mini version of our wedding cake because he doens’t want to wait until July to eat it!

I can’t belive your Fiance hates peanut butter!!  That is just crazy talk to me!

I would ask what their best flavors are. They will know! A recommendation is always better than a stab in the dark.
