We did a red velvet cake with vanilla buttercream. It was a huge hit and really yummy (and I’m not a cake person, either).

We also served cheesecakes and had a cookie bar.

Vanilla bean cake with pineapple preserves and cream cheese filling.

Lemon cake with fresh raspberries, lemon curd, and cream cheese filling.

Spice cake with apricot preserves and cream cheese filling.

We got our cake at an upscale local market that is widely known for their amazing baked goods.  When we went for our cake tasting we tried many awesome flavors of cake, but you know what our conclusion was?  Their “plain” cake was really good… I mean really, really good!  So we went with that with buttercream icing.  I know it wasn’t exciting but we got so many comments about how amazing the cake was.  When you go for your tasting, make note of what you react the most strongly to and go for it!

We’re doing chocolate cake with peanut butter frosting on the bottom tier, and white cake with buttercream frosting and raspberry filling on the top two tiers.  All covered with marshmallow fondant.  My step-sister is making it, so she and I were just playing around with flavors this weekend and I brought what was left into to work and got surprisingly good feedback!  I’m also considering having some Maple Bacon cupcakes in place of a grooms cake.  And we’ll have my family’s famous chocolate chip cookie brownies as favors, so people with peanut allergies can have dessert too.

We have two flavors in four tiers.  I chose chocolate with white chocolate mousse.
He chose vanilla cake with vanilla frosting.  I think.  I just remember his choice sounded really plain to me. : )

Since its Fall when I’m getting married, I’ve actually had a hard time deciding cake flavors (my absolute favorite cake is white with lemon and raspberry curds, and it doesn’t seem seasonal…). I think we’ll go with dark chocolate cake with cream cheese frosting, and yellow cake with vanilla buttercream…I really want an old fashion chocolate cake with lots of chocolate buttercream. It reminds me of childhood especially with some ice cold milk. Maybe I’ll work the chocolate chocolate into the groom’s cake.

We have a three tier cake (top is ours) so we have two tiers for guests and I wanted one with chocolate and one fruity. We ended up choosing marble and lemon/raspberry. The lemon/raspberry was out of this world! I can’t wait to hear what the guests think of that flavor. I’m a chocolate and vanilla kind of girl but I LOVE this raspberry/lemon flavor. Hope it turns out well! (Oh and buttercream icing for both)
