I am really struggling to decide how many flavors to use in my cake, and which tiers to put them in. We are having a 3-tier cake, and I’m thinking probably a different flavor for each tier. Right now I’m thinking white cake on the bottom, chocolate cake in the middle, and lemon or banana nut on top. (Trying to think most to least popular) How many flavors are you guys using, and which flavors are going in which tiers? I would love to hear what everyone else is doing. My biggest fear is that the most popular flavor is going to be something I wouldn’t have expected, and I’ll have put it in the top tier when it should have been on the bottom.

We did 3 flavors as well. We did almond in the top with hazelnut filling, which was specifically for my mother, but the venue never cut it. The middle tier we did chocolate on chocolate, and the bottom tier was vanilla with raspberry ricotta filling. We did the same thing thinking that our favorite was the raspberry. No one said anything about what they really peferred to us, so I wouldn’t obsess about it too much.

Top (smallest) : Green tea cake (sounds weird but SO good) with milk chocolate mousse filling and dark chocolate ganache icing
Middle: Lemon-raspberry cake with white chocolate ganache icing
Bottom: Devil’s food cake with caramel filling and dark chocolate ganache icing.
So yeah, my cake might look kind of weird. I don’t care. 🙂

We actually had a groom’s cake too. That was apple spice cake with walnut icing (that ended up being the hands down favorite) I had forgotten about that.

@Apple Cake: In that case, your handle is very misleading!! 😉

@mattsarmybride: have you asked your baker what they recommend? Our baker was very adamant that certain flavors should be at the base as some are more popular than others. We are doing 4 flavors but she said that 2 of the 4 are definitely more popular at the wedding shows she does.

Top, small tier (for us to keep) – white cake with raspberry creme filling
Second tier – Chocolate cake with caramel creme filling
Third tier – white cake with raspberry creme filling
Fourth (largest) tier – white cake on top, then raspberry creme filling and chocolate cake on the bottom (so both chocolate and white in one piece)
Then the groom’s cake will be full on chocolate cake with caramel creme filling

I’m thinking 2 – biggest tier will be vanilla, second tier is chocolate. Top tier will probably be vanilla, but we’re saving that for our anniversary.

we had three different layers with three different flavors. as to which should be which layer make sure you talk to your baker because some flavors have to be on the top or bottom due to their heaviness, airy-ness. 🙂
