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.

We’re doing:

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. 🙂
