    I agree that it would be unfortunate for someone to be unable to eat the cake or worse eat the cake unknowingly and then realize it has peanut butter in it.

    Honestly, I think it is your cake and you should have whatever flavor you want. The majority of people will probably not be allergic (though a lot of children have p.b. allergies now).

    Just make sure you let people know it is peanut butter if you are worried.

    If you choose to have another option for those who can’t have p.b. then that is great.

    @Ms.Sugarsnap:  The sheet cake idea is great – prevents cross contamination because the cakes wont touch!

    op, if anyone is allergic to peanuts, the cross contamination is very possible. but, a vanilla sheet, and chocolate sheet seperate are all fine and well. I luuuuurve me some resses, your cake sounds awesome to me

    I see nothing wrong with it. people with allergies are used to not being able to have some things. You cannot accomodate every allergy.

    My middle layer of my cake is also going to be chocolate/peanut butter. So, no, I don’t see a problem with it.

    I’m a celiac and I can pretty much NEVER eat the cake. I dont expect people to accomodate my allergy when it comes to their wedding cake. I’ve had a couple of wonderful friends provide me with a cupcake or something else but I never expect it. Its not the whole meal its a cake. Hell I’ve even brought my own food to weddings so really I dont expect any accomodation its nice but sometimes it doesnt happen.

    Definitely try out the peanut butter and if you go with it, keep it separate and put a cute little sign warning guests that it contains nuts. I would be overly excited if I went to a wedding with banana/chocolate/peanut butter flavors. I love all of those flavors and would probably mash them all together to make a super amazing bite.

    Anyone with a serious allergy isn’t going to blindly bite into some cake without knowing what it contains. I say do it — it sounds sooo good!

    You could do chocolate/vanilla on your cake proper, and then have peanut butter sheet cake. That way you can get the traditional cake for cutting and being pretty, and also have your peanut butter cake that’s nowhere near the other.

    Peanuts is one of the most common allergies. I agree that you can’t accommodate every allergy, but I do think that you should avoid what is probably the most common food allergy of them all! Maybe have a peanut flavoured groom’s cake instead?

    I have a servere peanut allergy.  If I went to a wedding that had peanut butter in their cake then I would not have any just because it is not worth the risk..

    I am going to assume that you have already sent out your invitations?  Did you include a card asking people to RSVP to the wedding as well as if there are any food allergies that they may have.

    If you are not aware of allergies then it is absolutely a necessaty that if you get reese cake that you have to make people aware and there must be an alternative option that is nut free and specifically say that to the baker.

    Because it would really suck going to a wedding and whinding up in the hospital :S
