    I wouldn’t be too fussed, as the outside can be whatever you want, why dont you just have chocolate and carot as the flavour and skip the yellow flavour

    I have been to several weddings that had yellow cake.  Also weddings that had chocolate, red velvet, confetti, carrot, and a multitude of others.  White cake is no longer just for weddings, wedding cake is more about the preference of the bride and groom.  We had white cake, but I really like white cake.  We also had a chocolate and carrot.  White cake was the only one that I went home with (OK with me, LOL), so maybe people actually prefer other types of cake.

    Do you know how yellow the yellow cake is? If it’s a pale yellow that would look quite classy.

    Wedding cake doesn’t need to be white, most people these days match it to their colours.

    i wouldn’t ever think of it being unclassy. i would be more concerned about it being delicious. don’t let people’s criticisms weigh too heavily on you or your decisions. in the end, if the people you invite are only talking about your cake choice, perhaps you have a bigger issue!

    Personally I LOVE a good yellow cake (especially with chocolate frosting, but that’s neither here nor there) and think it has more flavor than white.  It will be covered in frosting and/or fondant anyway, so I don’t think it matters.  If you’re very worried it won’t look right when served, you could stick to the chocolate option…maybe with a fruit filling to make it ‘fancy’ if it’s an option?  Either way, half your guests will be dancing or at the bar when it’s served and won’t even notice, and the other half will eat it without thinking about what color it is.

    As long as it tastes good, no one will care what color it is. 🙂

    Tell them you’re allergic to egg yolks.

    If they only use egg whites the cake will be white.

    ta-da!

    I don’t think it’s “un-classy,” but I’ve never had a yellow cake that tasted yummy and I freakin’ love cake. Base your decision on how it tastes, not what color the cake is.

    My FI’s favorite type of cake is yellow cake so he would appreciate an invite. 😉

    In all honesty as long as the cake tastes good no one is going to be concerned about the color. My Maid/Matron of Honor has funfetti at her wedding and it was amazing!!!

    I love yellow cake too! It s my favorite, I don’t think it really matters as long as it tastes good. I definitely prefer yellow over white.

    Honestly, the only difference between white cake and yellow cake is that white cake is made with only egg whites and yellow cake is made with whole eggs. I don’t think most guests would ever notice.

    I think it’s rather fussy to consider going someplace else b/c of the flavors of cake offered, especially if you’re otherwise pleased with this particular wedding package. To be honest, most guests prefer familiar foods over the stuffy over done things (take heed of this next time you’re at a fancy gathering with over the top food). Yellow cake is delicious. Chocolate cake is delicious. Carrot cake is delicious. I had red velvet cake at my wedding. AND yellow cake. Not a slice of either was left. Not trying to knock the fancy flavors, b/c they’re delicious too, but I really don’t think anyone’s going to make fun of you for having yellow wedding cake.
