    OMG, want all of them.

    But if I had to choose one, I would totally go cannoli cake.

    I LOVE cake, but the only one of those flavors that I would eat is cannoli (and it sounds AMAZING!!!!!).

    We had 3 choices, but I think it would be really lame to be at a wedding with different options and not get to pick your own. Especially if one had rum in it, I hate cake with alchohol in it and would be seriously disappointed to end up with it when there were other options.

    @unixfairy:  I don’t really understand how that works. Are you having a plated meal and servers bringing cake out?

    Is there an area for the caterer to set out the cake on a seperate table and have guests choose what piece they want? I went to a plated reception dinner and they did it this way. I don’t understand why this would cost more.

    Dangit, now I want cake.

    How much extra is the choice? How will they make sure there’s enough to accomodate everyone if they are offering a choice?

    I’m opting for white cake with raspberry filling because white cake is my favorite and there’s going to be a dessert buffet with lots of chocolate, peanut butter, coffee, mint, and lemon flavored treats so people will be sure to enjoy something sweet

    I’m really confused about how people can’t choose which slice they want.  I mean, at the very least, they can trade around the table.

    At my first wedding, we had absolutely delicious (but boring) chocolate and vanilla cake with buttercream icing and fondant over that (so you could take off the fondant and still have (tasty) frosting to eat).

    This time around, we’re having key lime cake with white chocolate and fresh raspberry buttercream and cocount cake with cococut cream cheese frosting.

    We had one flavor which was red velvet with vanilla filling and chocolate fudge icing, the cake was topped with chocolate covered strawberries. yummy

    I’m not a really a fan of fruit or rum inside the cake… so its hard for me choose from your options

    @bells:  I’ve had cake with rum in it where you couldn’t taste it but it helped keep the cake moist and I’ve had it where the only thing you tasted was the rum.  I’m going to hope the OP’s baker is tasteful with the use of rum.

    @unixfairy:  I just think the issue with trading may be one flavor being much more popular so people who want it dont end  up with it. I think if they can’t pick the one flavor would be better.
