Tell the hive what your cake flavor(s) will be or what they were at your wedding. Feel free to share if you are serving cupcakes, pie, tiramisu or anything else if you are not serving cake!
Our bakery had so many good flavors so we chose several flavors and fillings. We will serve the cake buffet style with little signs with the flavors described for the guests.
Our cake will be three tiers. The bottom tier will be layers of lemon and orange cake with raspberry preserve filling. The middle tier will be almond cake with apricot preserve filling. The top tier will be the same as the bottom tier, and we take that home. We also will have two half sheet cakes being served. The first half sheet cake will be white cake with bavarian creme and the other half sheet cake will be marble cake with chocolate ganache. This amount of cake should amount to 160-170 pieces of cake. Lots of options for people!

Ours is going to be a four tier.
I’m thinking the top would be our anniversary tier
3rd will be something egg and nut free for my nephews. Any suggestions??
2nd will be something super light and airy maybe like a angel food with fresh fruit?
bottom would be chocolate, chocolate, chocolate for the Future Father-In-Law. He’s a sweet & chocolate freak!
Is anyone else worried about the drastic flavors between tiers??

All of these flavors sound really good!
Goldilocks- that lemon poppyseed cake sounds delicious!
Gerbera, I am not worried about different cake flavors between layers. They will all be served seperately so I don’t think it will matter. Am I wrong?

I’m so undecided, but we’re doing one two tier cake and multiple layer cakes, so I have lots of room to experiment.
On the traditional cake, I know I want chocolate cake with chocolate ganache and white/yellow cake with a fruit curd and buttercream overall.
Besides that, I’m planning on doing a yellow cake with chocolate sour cream frosting, a hazelnut cake with chocolate ganache, a Pink Lady cake, and probably more once I scour for recipes.

We are having vanilla cake with strawberry french creme and fresh strawberries in the filling, and chocolate cake with hazelnut french cream filling. The cake will have vanilla buttercream frosting because I just don’t like the taste of fondant.
The groom’s cake is going to be New York style cheesecake, which is his favorite, with fondant cutouts on the top in his favorite design.
