Cant you have more than one cake flavor in your cake?  We had 3.  Also I think you need to remind your sis and mom who’s wedding this is.

You should def have cake you like.

I was all for raspberry filling, but my husband wasn’t. We ended up just having bavarian cream filling. It was his cake, too! And it was delicious.

And it does matter what cake you like, because even though the guests are eating it, you’ll remember your cake far longer than they will.

This sounds more like a “mom and sister” issue than a cake issue…

Have what you and your Fiance want.  This isn’t about what your sister says the “right” choice for a wedding is.  What does that even mean anyway?  No one’s going to take a piece of cake and clutch their pearls if the inside cake is something other than white.  They’ll probably even appreciate it more if the inside is a different, less traditional but more delicious option.

I hate that this isn’t your own decision. Maybe this is normal but it makes me appreciate the fact that we aren’t getting any financial help from anyone for our wedding. You should definitely have your yellow cake if that’s what you like.

Tricky situation, especially because your sister is paying.

Can’t you get different flavors for different tiers?  Fiance and I chose “crowd pleasing” flavors for the bottom and middle tiers.  You know, the standard flavors that most guests will enjoy.  But we chose a special flavor for the top tier that he and I will get to enjoy.

@Cem0930: It seems like your mom and sister are dictating everything! That sucks, I’m sorry. 

Yes, “traditional” wedding cake is a white cake. My mom told me that when she and my grandma went to order her cake, there wasn’t any option – just “wedding cake”. 

But WHO CARES? It’s your wedding cake. Of course it  is important what you want. Many brides these days don’t even have cake and have pies or cookies for dessert. Also, tell you mom and sister that yellow cake is just white cake with the whole egg instead of egg whitess. 

Like pp have said, can you get multiple flavors? We are doing three flavors (for 120 people) – Chocolate turtle, Mocha, and White cake with lemon and blueberry.
