So you’ve decided to hold true to the tradition and have a wedding cake on your big day…now you just have to decide on the flavor. These days the flavor combinations go far beyond the classic vanilla and chocolate. Here are a few ideas to get you thinking.
Milk Chocolate Cake
•Filled with cookies and cream mousse and white chocolate mint ganache.
•Filled with fresh lemon mousse, lemon filling, and homemade strawberry preserves.
Vanilla Bean Butter Cake
•Filled with bavarian cream and raspberries.
•Filled with mocha Chocolate Chip Cream with espresso ganache.
Dark Chocolate Cake
•Filled with chocolate truffle mousse, chocolate ganache, and raspberries.
Spiced Walnut Cake
•Filled with spiced caramel apple and cream cheese butter cream.
Red Velvet Cake
•Filled with toasted almond cream cheese and topped with traditional southern icing.
•Filled with marzipan and vanilla cream as well as brandy soaked apricot preserves.
Can’t decide on just one flavor? Do each tier a different flavor. It will give your guests options while sticking to one classic dessert. I’ve seen many brides and grooms choose their favorite flavor for the top tier (which they then save for themselves and take home!).
So when you go into talk cake with your baker make sure to ask what fun combinations they have. Never be afraid to give some ideas of your own, after all it’s your day and you deserve to have just the right taste when it comes to the cake you’ve been dreaming of.
