We haven’t decided what we are going with yet. But at a bridal show in Atlanta they had a bakery that had samples of Dolce De Leche cake & OMG it was soooo good! It has been by far my favorite.

Go with what you want.  You will find people that wont like any flavor for many reasons. You can’t make them all happy.  Since its many flavors you are looking for do a mix of basic and a bit more interesting.

I’d do a chocolate/vanilla option, maybe a lemon, and one that’s less ordinary (tiramisu?) That way you have an option that’s sure to please nearly everyone.

Should I go with a basic kind that people will enjoy or should I go for something different that people don’t usually have?

Both!  That’s what we’re doing. Although we might save our (less common) top layer…not sure. Anyway, ours will be

Top: Green tea cake with milk chocolate toffee mousse filling and bittersweet ganache icing

Middle: white cake with lemon and raspberry fillings with white chocolate ganace icing

Bottom: devil’s food with caramel filling and bittersweet ganache.

Mmmm…getting hungry just thinking about it.

I went to a bridal convention a couple of months ago and a cake vendor had little samples of cake for everyone to try.  They had an orange flavored cake.  I was very suprised that it was really really good!  It was light and refreshing.  Most people don’t like wedding cake because it’s so heavy after their meal.  I vote that you try an orange flavored cake.

@mightywombat: “devil’s food with caramel filling and bittersweet ganache” I think you just chose our personal cutting cakefor us! We’re doing various regular cupcakes for our guests and a giant cupcake for us. I have the guest cupckaes already picked out, but we couldn’t figure out a flavor for ours yet. But damn, I’m in cake porn heaven over here after reading that!

Our flavors for our guest cupcakes (as of right now) are chocolate cake/peanutbutter icing, red velvet/cream cheese icing, white cake/lemon icing, chocolate cake/chocolate butter cream icing. I may change the chocolate/chocolate since we have thee chocolate pb choice already.

@mightywombat:Middle: white cake with lemon and raspberry fillings with white chocolate ganace icing Drooling.  I don’t think there is a better combo than white chocolate and raspberry.  I plan on doing something like this.

You’re having a fall wedding, do a spice cake! That’s what we’re doing and it’s sooo yummy.

@Ms. Peach: Right?!?!  That’s why I wanted it to be the bottom (biggest!) layer.  That’s the one I want a huge honkin’ piece of. 😀

@LuckyJuls: Yay! I’m so glad to hear that people love the sound of our choices. 🙂 We might have the top layer (green tea) saved for us, but I’m not sure – as weird as it sounds, it was REALLY good when we tasted it.
