What flavor cake should I get for my wedding?
up for anything really
If you're doing a tiered cake that's easy -- get your favorite flavor for the top. For the other layers, get a variety. I did carrot cake for my topper. Not because overall it is my favorite, but that baker made an awesome carrot cake. If your bakery has a specialty (many are going nuts now with all the flavors thanks to Food Network cake shows), try it. Ask them what sells best. I had three layers for the guests -- chocolate, vanilla, and carrot. The carrot and chocolate went over best.
If you're only choosing one flavor, I would say chocolate. Every time I have seen people have a choice, the chocolate generally goes better than vanilla.
If you're a traditional sort, stick with vanilla. People will still eat it.
My best advice -- make sure the cake tastes good. Looks are secondary. No one wants to eat sawdust with fondant on it.read more collapse
@gmwhit: that is fabulous. i like it.
@raremonkey: what does the other participant in the wedding want? that would be my vote.
since you are having a small wedding (17 i believe you said) why not just go with your true favorite?
and congrats on the marriage. may it be long and filled with love.read more collapse
cherry chip is yummy and fun!
also red velvet, french vanilla, spice cake
cheesecake usually goes over well too
if there will be more than one layer do more than one flavor!
Or cupcakes in different flavors are really popular.
whatever you do stay away from fondant...looks good tastes awful.
Every cake Ive eaten with fondant on it I've peeled the fondant off. It's yucky.
