    I’d go all blood orange, because it’s so unique.  If guests don’t like it, they won’t eat their entire piece.  🙂

    I think variety is always a good idea when it comes to accomodating guests, so I voted for both – why not? You could request 75% blood orange / 25% red velvet for the picky eaters. Sounds delish!!!!

    I think they are both kind of “out there” enough flavors (not that they are odd, just people either love it or hate it) that you can stick with all blood orange.

    Now, if the choices were half orange, half chocolate or white, then I’d be more in favor of splitting. But to me, since red velvet is kind of a “love it or hate it” flavor as well, you’re just as well doing all orange and it’s what you want.

    No one will die if they don’t like the cake flavor!

    I agree that noone will die if they don’t get a cake flavor they like, but for me it was important for my guests to LOOOOVE the cake. I really dislike blood orange, and the cake is always one of my favorite things at the reception! I would get over it if you had a blood orange cake and I didn’t get a piece that I liked, but I won’t lie– I would be dissapointed! I vote doing at least some red velvet. If it doesn’t cost more, it would be worth it to me to keep those guests happy that would dislike the blood orange.

    I would just do blood orange, sounds much more unique!  In my opinion, I am not sure what the big deal is with red velvet cake…taste wise I find it pretty boring.  I only like to make it in cupcake or cheesecake form around Valentines Day.

    Any other flavor options you have to work with?

    If it’s good people will eat it!

    I’d go with all blood orange.  Do something different!  Sure, it’s not as crowd-pleasing as red velvet, but I think the cake is one aspect of the menu where it’s okay to be adventurous.  Nobody will die/starve if they skip the cake.
