I think the standard in the UK is fruitcake, I know lots of people who have had this but the cake has never been served at any wedding Ive been too so never tasted it (heard traditional wedding cake is awful though)

we are going for chocolate and actually serving it… I dont see the point in having something no one would eat

When I was growing up typical UK wedding cake was fruit cake (same as Christmas cake) but I haven’t been to a wedding in years (all my adult life in fact) where it has been a giant christmas cake. I think most poeple see it as a bit old fashioned now (my parents were suprised when my brother had a vanilla sponge for his wedding, they still thought fruit cake was the norm.)

 

For our wedding we’re having chocolate with salted caramel buttercream.  Maybe adding some baileys flavouring to one of the tiers 🙂

 

My main gripe with UK weddings and cake is that it isn’t usually cut until too late in the evening – I never seem to get any, and the couple always complain that there was ‘loads left over.’  Like.. I would have eaten at least half of that for you if it was cut earlier and I could have gotten near it.

Ours was a super delicate vanilla with strawberry shortcake filling. It was the best cake I’ve ever eaten, and guests agreed! I was so sad there were many no leftovers!

I’m at work so I can’t post a pic, but my cake was a super simple vanilla with raspberry filling.

Our wedding isn’t for another month, but for my cake I am having 2 tiers of strawberry cake with a strawberry filling and a layer of traditional almond (I hate almond but the parents thought I should have it), covered in buttercream.  My fiance’s cake will be shaped like a whiskey barrel and will be butter pecan cake with a whiskey glaze and cream cheese icing.  I am SUPER pumped about both of them.

We had a vanilla cutting cake, and then Chocolate, Vanilla, and Cherry cupcakes.  They were all really amazing!

Me – I wanted chocolate, but the bakery said it was too difficult to cover, with white frosting, so we ended up with choclate chip. I didn’t even eat it. I tend to not waste calories on ice cream and cake, if it isn’t choclate.

I can’t stand food coloring, so I’ve never understood why the popularity, for red velvet?

Daughter #1 chose chocolate chip, without knowing what we chose in the 1970s, and pound cake. I don’t remember what the fillings were. It was covered in fondant (the price was included in their all-inclusive rate) and I saw people peeling it off, with their forks, before eating. Other than the top layer, which they kept and froze, there wasn’t 1 crumb left.

There are too many nut allergies, in our family/social circle, to shoose anything with nuts.

Daughter #2 is in the photo. They had the best butter cream icing I’ve ever tasted. I still have their menu: chocolate chiffon cake/cream cheese mousse filling or strawberry champagne/French cream filling with strawberries.
