My cake baker has asked me to tell her what cake flavors we would like to taste on Monday. I was thinking Vanilla with raspberry, cookies and cream at least to try. But looking for other ideas.

My reception dress is rose gold so would match our theme to that.

    We’re doing a black forest cake and then a brown butter cake with a marionberry icing. Maybe think of some warm fall flavors for your flavors?

    We did a 3 tier cake with 3 different flavors. Vanilla buttercream, lemon buttercream and champagne and strawberries and the grooms cake was carrot cake. Since your wedding is close to Thanksgiving you could do a pumpkin later.....yummy. That was one of my favorites.

    We've gone back and forth on this a thousand times, but we've decided to do funfetti for our cutting cake and chocolate, strawberry, and caramel apple cupcakes for guests.

    We're going with Funfetti for the main cake and chocolate peanut butter ganache for the groom's cake. My aunt is professionally trained and offered to bake our cakes. We also sampled a hazelnut cake with chocolate hazelnut ganache which is another great option!

    We are having a 3 tier cake. Top layer will be vanilla with butter cream, 2nd layer will be pound cake and bottom layer will be a black & jack.
    Our cake baker sent home a tray with all the cake samples on it for us to try then we decided.

    Ah ok. For me I have to tell her what flavors I want which makes it bit harder, and makes me want to investigate a little lol

    A local bakery is doing our cake, and they didnt charge extra to do two different flavors for the two different tiers. So I let my fiance pick the top (cookies and cream) and I picked the bottom (chocolate) and we both chose the chocolate mousse filling.

    I'm getting married in October and we did precisely two cake tastings. Both offered cupcakes for the tastings instead of cake. One was at a place that did traditional flavors (chocolate, strawberry, vanilla, lemon, and salted caramel). They were good, but exceptionally sweet.

    The other place was a local bakery that does more breads than wedding cakes. They made two lemon blueberry options for us, a chocolate spice cake that was adapted from a family recipe I gave them, almond cranberry, brown butter rosemary, and black forest cupcakes. All of them were amazing and they were able to fill some of the cupcakes with the fillings that would be between the cake layers.

    We went with lemon cake with blueberry compote and lemon curd on the inside, almond cake with cranberry compote, and a brown butter rosemary cake at the top tier. There is vanilla frosting in between the layers of the top tier cake, and the outside of all three tiers is vanilla buttercream.

    We're also going a separate chocolate spice cake with peacans and mocha buttercream, since it is something we have at a lot of family functions and was passed down from my great-grandmother.
