    I voted for the lemon cake and the coffee cake.  I would have voted for the chocolate cake if it weren’t for the white chocolate ganache, because while I love chocolate, I don’t really like white chocolate.  I didn’t vote for the vanilla because it sounded a bit boring compared to the other options, but boring cake is still cake and I wouldn’t turn my nose up at it.  I didn’t vote for the almond cake because I’ve never tried almond cake, and because cinnamon cream cheese filling sounds a bit odd, but I almost voted for it because of how much I love cream cheese frosting.

    You can’t go wrong with lemon cake. One of our tiers was lemon and I’m still dreaming about it

    Definitely one lemon. How many tiers do you have? I’d go for lemon, chocolate and either coffee or almond if you have 3.

    xiexie :  If they all tasted amazing then pick whichever flavour appeals to you the most. You are not going to please everyone so please yourself! Added bonus is the less came everyone eats the more that is left for you!! #winning 😂

    xiexie :  I would be more than happy to eat any one of these cakes. They all sound incredible! I voted for the chocolate though, you had me a strawberries and ganache.

    xiexie :  They all sound yummy but I voted lemon, but I am biased because we are having lemon sponge with pina colada frosting!

    xiexie :  I think chocolate, lemon and vanilla is a great idea! I wouldn’t sub vanilla for almond or coffee, both of those are super rich options and I think the vanilla cake eaters would be wanting something a little lighter. I would just see if your baker can switch the fruit in one of the layers for something else (or leave it out of one layer).
