All the cake posts I''ve been lurking at have come at a perfect time. Well, for me at least.
I''ve been emailing my baker about fillings and flavors. I told her we like tart flavors with a bit of zing, she suggested passion fruit cake and lemon-almond cake. We also requested tiramisu flavored cake.

What are the flavors/filling for your cakes?

I'm not to that stage of planning for cakes yet, but I have had Passion fruit cake at weddings and it is GOOD
Don't know if you ever consider having different flavors for different tiers of the cake -- one of my friend's wedding had a cake like that and it certainly impressed the guests

sure thing! actually, our stand was our baker's. however, before i knew she had one i thought i would have to provide my own (cause this was the exact one i wanted). so, i researched and found it here:

http://www.save-on-crafts.com/castroraweca.html


check with your baker. i was so glad she had the exact one i was interested in!


eta: oh and, check with your baker to see what size cake stand you need. there's a specific amount of space needed from the outer edge of the cake to the cake stand.

We''re so not at the stage of looking at cake flavors yet...but, I think we''ll probably go with something chocolate. Maybe chocolate hazelnut or something. Fruit flavors are tempting, but my dad won''t eat most types of fruit, and even though I normally would ignore his pickyness, it''s important to me that my dad be able to eat my wedding cake. The other option is lemon, which I love, but Fiance is not so crazy about. I hope they can make a chocolate cake with a light colored icing, though, cause I''d really prefer not to have a brown wedding cake.

We haven't been cake tasting yet (April!) but this combination from the baker's website looks the best to me/FH:

Marble cake (white chocolate swirled with fudge)
Chocolate mousse filling
Buttercream icing

YUM! I won't be able to eat it (can't have dairy) but, well, it sounds DELICIOUS. I'm getting a small chocolate vegan cake (which I've tried, and it's fantastic) for my Mom and I.

If we do a groom's cake, I'm thinking of surprising FH with a carrot cake (his favorite!) decorated like a baseball with the Dodgers logo. He loves the Dodgers.

We got married when pretty much the choices were white or chocolate. I don''t care much for white so I selected chocolate. WoooHooo!!

A couple years later, my sister got married. She''s an artistic type person so she was very bold for the day in her wedding cake selection.

I don''t know where she read it, but Sis said she''d read the traditional wedding cake used to be Old Fashioned Spice with raisins and nuts. She decided that''s what she wanted for her cake.

In a Bride''s magazine, she''d seen a pic of a cake that was "the latest thing" in wedding cakes. Amaretto Buttercream Frosting. AND, the cake had flowers on top instead of the traditional Bride and Groom statue thingy. So that''s what she had.

Old Fashioned Spice cake with raisins and nuts, and Amaretto Buttercream Frosting. With flowers as decorations.

And it was WONDERFUL!! That cake was so different from the "typical wedding cake" people were used to at the time. People at the reception chowed down on the Wedding Cake. Even tho we had a sheet cake of choc/white for additional servings, we practically had to fight to save the top layer of the Wedding cake.

Red velvet with strawberries and buttercream. I made it for FI for his birthday so I could say, "Isn''t this good? What about this for the wedding cake?!?!" So sneaky.

I wish that I had more cake options to choose from, but I am pretty much a chocolate lover anyway, so...

Chocolate Cake
Truffle (ganache) and raspberry filling
Milk chocolate buttercream icing

I''m thinking I will do something non-chocolate for the groom''s cake, so people will have another option. They have a lemon cake/lemon curd filling that sounds delish!

wow those are cool!!!

Everyone still talks about my cake... it was just a really good cake - so much can be said for simple GOOD things like moist white cake, kwim? Anyway, my cake was all the same but each part had two layers... one had strawberries and whipped cream and the other had bananas and rum custard.

Ooh, Cehra....that sounds delicious. I'm generally not a "fruity cake" fan, but strawberries and whipped cream on white cake sounds divine.

TGuy is a chocolate person, so I was surprised when we both agreed at the carrot cake and banana cake tasted the best. It was really good, and I am not a big wedding cake person.

For our first reception, we had three tiers - vanilla cake with fresh strawberries, vanilla cake with kiwi jam filling and vanilla cake with fresh mango. Mango is DH''s favorite fruit and strawberries (well any berries) is mines. For our second reception, we had all marble cake with raspberry gel filling. Everyone loves that cake; too bad I didn''t remember how it tasted like.

we had two cake flavors, one to pay homage to the fact that we married in hawaii, and the other because greg wanted chocolate hehee.

vaguely can recall...but i think it was a passionfruit guava with white cake for one layer; and then a double chocolate truffle kind of dark cake for the other layer. both were REALLY good but i think the chocolate was better for me. our baker in kauai originally used to live in SF, she was amazing.

i gotta say i am a total sucker for wedding cakes (and birthday cakes etc)...i just love how they can taste so amazingly great. i love how creative the fillings can be, or how absolutely simple (white on white sometimes is the best!).

we''re doing five different flavors..

peanut butter delight
strawberries n'' cream + light rum
strawberries bananas n'' cream + light rum
strawberries + chocolate ganache

EBree, Could I please have a piece of your wedding cake? I think that''s my favorite combination!!


Just out of curiosity, what would be in a vegan cake? I''ve never had one.

Well that's a good sign! I just hope our guests feel the same way.


I've never made a vegan cake before, but I've heard that the woman making mine (which is super chocolate-y and delicious...my Mom didn't even know it was vegan!) uses oils in place of eggs and milk. Perhaps soy milk is involved? To be honest, I've made several different vegan desserts and people can't tell the difference but I decided to go for a regular cake for everyone else.

Funny story: FH made dinner a couple of months ago with two different kinds of mashed potatoes: margarine and soy milk for me, and butter and 2% for him. Well, he ended up throwing his out and just eating mine! Since, we've used soy and margarine in our potatoes.

Our cake was four tiers, the bottom and third layers were red velvet, the second was French vanilla, and the top layer (our layer that I want to bust out of the freezer every time I open the fridge) is peanut butter cream. I can''t wait to have that!!

Ours will be two tiers. The larger one will be dark chocolate with a chocolate raspberry truffle filling, and the top will probably be white cake with lemon filling. Buttercream frosting. My absolute favorite cake is dark chocolate with cream cheese frosting, but our baker doesn''t offer it. And I think the buttercream will hold up longer.
