I am having so much trouble deciding on a cake flavor!
I do not like plain vanilla cake. I find them boring and it does not match my Fiance and my personalities at all. My favorite fragrance and flavor combo is coconut lime so I was thinking a coconut flavored cake with a lime buttercream. However, I’m not sure if anyone would eat it.
My FH’s groom’s cake is a southern red velvet with cream cheese frosting because that’s his favorite. So I would like something to complement his cake.
What flavor was your cake and which flavor would you prefer to eat?

I voted vanilla cake/choc butter creme because I generally don’t prefer chocolate cake… but what about a lemon cake with a vanilla butter creme? I was a little leery of citrus overload with the lemon cake + lime buttercreme combo (although I haven’t tried it).

Either vanilla cake with chocolate buttercream or chocolate cake with vanilla buttercream. I’m a fan of the chocolate/vanilla combo.

Unless you are only having one layer, you can have more than one flavor. A friend chose these 3 flavors:
almond with berry filling

How many tiers is your cake? I’m asking because ours has 5 and we are doing a different flavour for each and no extra cost to get around your issue.

I probably should have included this too. It’s a 3 layer cake. The top and bottom tiers will be the same flavor and I think I want to make the 2nd tier a vanilla cake so it’s not an olverload.
I just need help deciding the top and bottom tiers.

I’m a coconut lime fan – but ended up choosing the lemon/lime combo, because some people don’t like coconut… now that I know you can have two different kinds I think you should do 1&3 tiers in the coconut/lime and the other in vanilla or chocolate cake.

I like coconut cake but have a weird aversion to limes (i love lemons though). How about a coconut cake with vanilla buttercream?

I think they all sound fantastic! If you are only doing one flavor, I would be weary of coconut, I know of many people who hate it. But if you have more than one flavor, I wouldn’t worry about it!
Edit, Just noticed you are having more than one flavor. Any will be wonderful! 🙂

yum. i would love to try the coconut cake/lime frosting. However your safest is probably vanilla/vanilla. is there any chance you can get your top tier with the coconut lime in order to try it with your new husband at a later time?

im thinking of having 5 tiers:
1 gluten free – probably vanilla on vanilla (smallest tier)
the 2 largest tiers
middle tier will be red velvet (my fave)
4th tier – probably chocolate with vanilla icing

Boo on vanilla! It may be the most popular flavor but I think it is boring and safe. I love coconut/lemon/lime anything that will be a suprise. Go with what YOU want since you get to take the first taste!
