I am setting up some wedding cake consultations and we get to pick out 3 different flavor combinations to try for one bakery, but of course am a horrible decision maker. I love to have things that are different, but I don't want to waste my money getting something that is too out there. I'm curious to know what are some of the best wedding cake flavor combinations you have tried or what flavors have you decided for your own cake(s)?

    Oh man... I'd want to try them all!!! We are going to be doing the mini cheesecakes pictured in 6 flavors so we are covering a wide variety. For a cake though, I'm a sucker for chocolate or red velvet, although I love pineapple and seeing that as a filling I would definitely want to try that with maybe a French vanilla cake! (Or even chocolate!)

    I would do one of them in a basic flavor that most people like, white with raspberry or cream cheese, then for the other two do something fun! I'm a sucker for coconut so the toasted coconut with bavarian would be my first choice!

    Omg the best we tried will be our biggest layer. White amaretto raspberry swirl cake with a Bavarian cream and raspberry filling. I'm so excited to eat that cake! The middle layer is marble with chocolate buttercream filling and the top is coconut with coconut cream filling. All soooo good!

    I think Jill has the right idea (except maybe about the coconut....). DH and I did the biggest layer in chocolate cake with mocha filling, the middle in classic white-cake-with-fruit for everyone else (NOT one of my faves) and the top in mik chocolate with dark chocolate filling. If I'd realized we were going to keep the top, I would have made that the mocha/dark chocolate, cause I don't like milk chocolate, so keep that in mind, too. If you're just serving it all and buying another cake for your anniversary, it doesn't matter.

    My sister works at a bakery and they make this "champagne peach" cupcake that I am in love with. Sooo yummy. I'm going to ask if they can make one of the tiers of my cake, that flavor. The other 2 will probably be more basic so that everyone gets something they like.

    We go in Jan for our cake tasting but we looked at the bakeries website and i think the 3 combos we are leaning towards are :

    Vanilla Sponge & Banana Mousse

    Chocolate cake & Peanut Butter Mousse

    Red Velvet & Cream Cheese

    I'd try the raspberry preserves with Bavarian cream filling. It's kind of similar to what were doing for one of our two cake flavors.

    We chose for two of our tiers a lemon pound cake with raspberry marmalade and white chocolate mousse fillings. The other two tiers will be marble cake with two layers of the white chocolate mousse filling so guests will have a choice between fruity awesomeness and not fruity.

    Since you're having a summer wedding I would suggest something fruity maybe like the lemon with raspberry preserves or white almond with lemon or strawberry. Or white or chocolate cake with strawberry preserves.

    Our top tier is vanilla cake with peanut butter filling, the middle tier is lemon cake with vanilla buttercream and raspberry puree and the bottom tier is chocolate cake with mocha filling. Vanilla buttercream will cover the entire outside. YUM!

    Our cake was chocolate and red velvet with vanilla buttercream and fresh raspberries for the filling. My friend's wedding cake was delicious. They had white cake with a salted caramel filling. I ended up booking her baker based on how amazing her cake was!

    We have dark chocolate and French vanilla marbled with espresso buttercream for the bottom layer. Our middle layer is rum cake with vanilla buttercream. The layer for later is the dark chocolate and rum cake marbled with the espresso buttercream...
