I was just curious to know what flavors everyone is picking/picked for their cake? If you have pictures of your cake post those too! We see dress and ring porn on this site all the time but I don’t think I’ve ever seen a cake post on the boards before 🙂
I made my cake – it was yellow cake with strawberry filling and almond buttercream…just wish I’d gotten to eat more than the one bite my husband fed me, but things went by so fast and I totally forgot until it was too late and everything was eaten!
Here’s a pic!

@lisaelanna Your cake looks beautiful. I would never be able to make something like that and it really sounds delicious.
I don’t have my cake yet since we’re not getting married until June, but it’s going to be a traditional round 4 tiered cake with Vanilla Swiss Meringue Frosting. The cake will have sugar pink cherry blossoms cascading down the side with a thin black ribbon on the bottom edge of each layer.
Since we had so many tiers I got to pick different flavors for each one so we went with Almond, Manderin Orange and and Chocolae. The top tier is going to be almond with a rasberry jam filing. I wish we could’ve had the filing for the entire cake, but adding that to the entire cake would’ve been ridiculously too expensive.

I’m pretty sure I’m going to have a chocolate cake with pumpkin mousse filling 🙂

@FutureMrsCookie – Mandarin Orange sounds fantastic! I would never have thought to try that! We went to a wedding last summer where the couple had a grapefruit cake (it was more like vanilla with just a hint of citrus) but it was really cool to have such an unexpected (and delicious flavor). I bet the Mandarin will get a similar reception. 🙂

- Wedding: November 2011 - Florida Aquarium
We chose out of the box flavors. The bottom tier was strawberry, middle was caramel nut, and the top was a rosewater. I don’t really remember the filling flavors, but it was deliciousl We also had mini cupcakes in more traditional flavors.

This will be my cake but with hotpink ribbon, black swirls, on a silver stand and the flowers will be hotpink dark eyed gerbas.
We have yet to decide on flavors but a marble or tuxedo will be a must, and I really think I want a banana for myself on the smallest tier with chocolate filling (I don’t think many would like it but its my day! haha)

Ours was a banana cake with bavarian cream filling. I too wish I had eaten more than the tiny bite my DH fed me. We should have cut a larger slide. UGH!

The tasting was DIVINE and can’t wait to eat more! She gave us a FULL cake (the size of the top layer) with 8 different options… GENIUS!
- banana with bavarian cream filling
- almond with bavarian cream filling
- hazelnut with chocolate whipped cream filling
- lemon with mango cream filling
FH loved the almond so much that his groom’s cake will also be that flavor. I love the fact that it looks like regular cake flavors, but packs so much unexpected flavor.

Mine will be two layers of red velvet/ cream cheese frosting and a layer of vanilla with raspberry filling. We are doing a beach wedding so the cake has beach details like seashells and coral. Our “cake topper” is two seashells with our initals hand painted on.

We are planning on Banana split cake
chocolate, strawberry and vanilla cake layers with pineapple and banana filling. W can’t decide on flavored butter cream fillings or flavored cream cheese fillings. Iced in butter cream with a hint of marshmallow flavor.
