Cakes are an essential factor in any wedding. You can go the ultra-traditional and pick a classic tiered cake route or you can add a new age touch by going the route of cupcakes! Each direction is one that will bring a smile to the faces of all your wedding guests. Now the real question that you and your partner have to ask is what flavor do we want?
A guaranteed crowd-pleaser, classic vanilla cake is a go-to option for many brides and grooms. The deliciously simple flavor works well with nearly any type of frosting and filling.
The indulgent dessert is often complemented with buttercream, caramel, or raspberry. Chocolate cake with raspberry mousse is easily the most requested delicacy. Variations of chocolate cake, including dark chocolate and German chocolate, also share the spotlight.
A zesty and tangy confection, lemon cake takes center stage at many warm-weather weddings, since the flavor comes across as tartly refreshing. Lemon cake goes well with lemon frosting, vanilla buttercream, raspberry filling, or fresh berries. What's more, Lundin says it pairs nicely with mousse fillings.
