    They all sound awesome to me, but I love all cake lol. I’d probably stay away from the coconut and the tiramisu just because I’ve found that people either really love those flavors or really hate them. I’ve never heard of the million dollar cake but it sounds amazing and gets my vote. Cake, mousse, and cheesecake in one? Yes please!

    The raspberry one sounds AH-MAZING! 

    My cousin made my cake and it was red velvet and vanilla with a cream cheese frosting and it was to die for. 

    I agree to stay away from coconut (although I LOVE coconut) and tiramisu (although I also LIVE tiramisu!) I know plenty of people who disdain both flavors.

    The Cassata sounds AMAZING! Never heard of it, but I’d be all in!

    There wasn’t a button for all of the above! Of all the descriptions, the million dollar one sounds especially delicious. It’s like a cake we had at our own wedding.

    bluecutie00 :  I’d eat just about all of these.  I nixed the raspberry for having white chocolate though – I don’t know why anyone likes white chocolate.  It would have been at the top of my list with the real deal.  I’ll shove a boston cream pie in my face anytime it’s handed to me, but it’s an easy cake I could make at home – likewise strawberry shortcake (which we had at our own wedding, so go figure).  Tiramisu is only good if it’s made with amaretto not coffee and I’m def not into coconut cakes.  

    So I went with million dollars – never heard of it, sounds delish and husband prefers cheesecake to ‘real’ cake so he’d be happy as well.  Cassata sounds good too – I love me some rum cake, but are there going to be kids?  Some rum cakes are super duper rummy (you know, the good ones).

    I know it’s the old-fashioned standard, but I love the classic white almond cake.  Put a filling layer of choice in the middle to personalize it, I’m there.  That is always my default, I figure it’s been a staple for so long for a reason.  Of the choices you listed?  The cassata, because anything with cannoli cream and you’ve got me–if it’s good cannoli cream!

    The Swiss roll sounds to me like what will be most universally liked. Raspberry white chocolate second choice, no question  

    The million dollar cake sounds too rich. I’d love coconut but a lot of people hate coconut. Strawberry shortcake sounds good! Tiramisu is another hit or miss. I can’t imagine Boston cream working with the aesthetic. 

    Id rule out coconut and tiramisu and then go with your gut.

    I went with the strawberry shortcake. It’s not too sweet and helps cleanse the palatte after a meal.

    I love coconut, but apparently I also found out many people don’t like coconut… The other options also sound alright, but I’ve never had chocolate and cheesecake (not a fan) together before. The raspberry also sounds good, but white chocolate might be a bit too sweet, depending on the vendor. I know some people who specifically said they dislike white chocolate even though they like milk and dark, which is strange. You’re going to get people who don’t like this and that, so maybe pick what you think your crowd would enjoy.

    I had an 8 and 10 inch so two layers. Literally just a plan white cake with some ridges for a little bit of design and I had coconut at the bottom and strawberry guava at the top which is very famous in Hawaii. I had two dozen cupcakes (12 diff flavours) to satisfy my guests who didn’t eat either of the cake flavours and I had no complaints! Can you do something like that? Or stick with a basic flavor like vanilla with a fruit filling or something safe like that?
