Cake Tasting.....EXCITED!!

Hi ladies, I've been MIA from the boards, busy busy busy but I try to check in from time to time. How are you ladies? Question: how in the world can I chose just three of these delicious options? My tasting is today and I'm sooooo excited. Our wedding cake will be covered in buttercream or fondant depending on the design I chose.

Fresh Banana Cake: It's not banana bread, it's cake. Fresh bananas flavor this cake that's frosted with cream cheese icing.

Fresh Strawberry Cake (seasonal from May-Sept): Lovely cake made with fresh strawberries and filled with sliced strawberries and vanilla bean buttercream or cream cheese icing.

German Chocolate: Tender and delicious chocolate cake filled with chocolate ganache and coconut pecan icing. Can be made vegan.

Southern Red Velvet: 2nd place winner at the Solano County Fair, this cake is ultra-moist and delicious. It's made with Valhrona cocoa and finished with cream cheese icing. Garnished with or without toasted pecans.

Vanilla Funfetti Cake: Better than the box! Moist vanilla cake accented with funfetti and topped with strawberry buttercream or vanilla if you prefer.

Texas Cream Cake: Moist vanilla cake studded with roasted pecans and coconut. It's finished with cream cheese icing, pecans, and coconut.

Burnt Almond: Almond and vanilla scented cake layered with mascarpone buttercream and sprinkled with almond brittle. The whole cake is covered with toasted almonds.

Vegan Mocha: No one will know it's vegan. This cake won Grand Prize at the Solano County Fair. Rich vegan chocolate cake is partnered with vegan chocolate ganache and vegan mocha icing.

Coconut Cake: Tender coconut cake with coconut filling and covered in coconut. Can also be filled with fresh raspberries and jam, lemon curd, or fresh pineapple.

Banana Fosters: Vanilla Cake with dulce de leche filling, fresh bananas, rum syrup and caramel buttercream.

Cookies and Cream: Decadent chocolate cake filled with Oreo buttercream, iced with vanilla bean buttercream and glazed with chocolate ganache.

Lemonade: Fresh squeezed lemon cake with lemon filling and lemon buttercream. Garnished with white chocolate.

Chocolate Raspberry: Chocolate cake, fresh raspberries and jam, chocolate buttercream, and chocolate ganache make this cake outstanding. Can be made vegan.

Peanut Butter: Peanut butter cake with a peanut butter filling and can be iced with cream cheese or fudge icing.

Chocolate Mint: Chocolate cake filled with mint buttercream and chocolate ganache. This cake is not colored green but left natural.

Holy moly I can't even read all of those, the first two are making me drool :)


I don't know how you are going to choose, that's tough! But my suggestion would be to have one 'regular' flavor like chocolate or vanilla for people that are not adventurous. Then pick 2 that you and your FI really love. I vote Red Velvet because it's amazing, but the strawberry also sounds delish, and so does the coconut, the peanut butter, the lemonade...lol. Good luck!

I just had a second thought - if you are really struggling to narrow it down, consider the time of your wedding. I think of strawberry and lemonade flavors as very light and summery, but peanut butter and german chocolate could be a bit heavier, more fallish or winter. There is no rule there, have any flavor any time IMO, but maybe that will help you choose!

Oh my gosh!! What delicious choices you have! I would go for Strawberry, Southern red velvet, vanilla funfetti, vegan mocha, lemonade or chocolate raspberry. I like Sam's suggestion on picking something regular for those who aren't adventurous and something for yourselves. You'd hate to waste cake because people were afraid to try a fancy flavor!  Best wishes with your decision! Let us know what you choose!
