My mom and I are having a disagreement about cake flavors. I want to have strawberry and lemon with cream cheese frosting. We will also be having a chocolate peanut butter grooms cake. My mom thinks that we should go with plain jane flavors. Thoughts?

honestly, I love nut flavored cakes!
I love hazelnut!
hazelnut cake with chocolate ganache (it’d be like nutella!!)

I’m one of those people who likes plain jane flavors (I don’t like chocolate, I know I’m weird) so if I were a guest I’d prefer to have white or yellow or something similar. I still think you could have at least one flavor that’s not plain though. That being said, it’s your wedding and you should have whatever you like. I’m guessing the majority of your guests would like at least 1 of the 2 flavors you have.

Can your cake baker do more than one flavor on your cake? Ours offered to do different layers with different flavors, but we liked chocolate cake with a fudge and raspberry filling the best!

Strawberry and lemon with cream cheese sounds amazing! Go for it! How many tiers are you having? Each one can be a different flavor usually right? So you can do those to and one plain layer even if you wanted to compromise. I think your picks sounds amazing though!

My favorite is confetti cake, so that is what we’re doing the wedding cake! Well, alternating confetti and chocolate tiers because FI’s fave is chocolate.

Yum! Plain cake is not much fun — I usually wave off cake with no thought because the last thing I want is a slice of marble cake. But your flavors sound amazing!!
My favorite cake: carrot! Geez, I guess that kind of is a boring flavor… I’m all about the cream cheese icing.

We’re not going with plain jane – if people don’t want it they donn’t have to eat it! Strawberry lemon cream cheese sounds great!!

Ours was spice cake with apple filling and buttercream icing. It was amazing… and people loved it. Go with what you want!!

The most popular cake flavors I get asked to make: Chocolate & Vanilla. Go figure… It’s a crowd pleasing favorite!
Depending on the number of tiers, add 1 layer + the top tier of your fav choices & have the rest "plain jane" style. I usually suggest that brides go w/ the classics on the wedding cake and liven it up on the grooms cake. 🙂
The worst complaint from customers is when the guests don’t go for their specialty cake flavor & barely touch the cake. It breaks my heart & its a gigantic waste of the couples money.
