    I would do the tiers as follows (smallest to largest)

    • Pink lemonade with lemon filling
    • Carrot cake with cream cheese filling
    • Irish Coffee with chocolate fudge filling
    • Dark chocolate cake with raspberry filling

    Mmmmm, soooo hungrrrrrry

    Funfetti! It’s nice to have a small choice of a different flavor – ex: coffee – but it’s one of those things where if you don’t like that flavor at all you are screwed. You can’t just scrape the icing off of a coffee cake, it still tastes like coffee. Coffee, Baileys, Toffee, etc. are all strong flavors. Usually at weddings you’re just served whatever and the chances of a guest actually getting a piece of cake they will enjoy is slim if the flavors are unique or strong. I only eat very simple flavors so getting something that everyone will enjoy would be something to strongly consider.

    I’m torn between Italian cream and Hawaiian Passion.

    I love almond, so Amaretto with raspberry or strawberry filling would be my favorite.

    My Fiance loves carrot cake, so I’m pretty sure one tier of our cake will be carrot cake.

    The orange pineapple sounds interesting and would be worth a tasting.  I’d stay away from the funfetti and the pink lemonade.

    What is “italian cream” cake like? I can just imagine basically… white cake… But I love creamy things… and… Italy… lol. So what is that flavor like?

    I do think Red Velvet would be different enough but appeal to most people. Like I hate dark chocolate and also orange anything… I like drinking coffee WITH things, but I really dislike coffee flavored cake. And my parents both hate coffee, so they wouldn’t even touch it. And while I really like carrot, I know a lot of people don’t. My fiance hates it; my brother loves it.

    Like… I think Red Velvet would be overall the most agreeable… like I think the LEAST amount of people would hate red velvet over something more unique, you know?

    Or maybe Italian cream… it sounds good and neutral, but I don’t know what it is yet. lol. The others mostly are very specific.

    Adding to chorus for red velvet with cream cheese filling. It’s a great flavor that a lot of people like but is still somewhat different than your standard wedding cake. Other than that I love the sound of amaretto and chocolate fudge, dark chocolate with raspberry, and funfetti with strawberry.

    Maybe it’s just me but I think red velvet is way over rated. It’s just chocolate with LOTS of red food coloring. Right?

    I say get what YOU like and avoide what you DON’T like. So by that rule it should be something along the lines of Funfetti w/ strawberry, Lemon w/lemon (yum!), Dark Chocolate w/ raspberry, and yellow w/ chocolate fudge filling. I’d have a tough time choosing if I were a guest at your shindig!
