Hi All:

 

In reading numerous Karisma threads on here, one common question noticed (and I have even posed) was around wedding cakes - specifically which flavors taste the best.

 

As I finalize my own wedding, I thought it might be helpful to create a cake flavor "one stop shop" thread - especially since this info often gets lost in the much bigger threads (e.g., Azul Beach Brides, Generations Brides, EDR Brides etc..) where so many useful tips & details are being engaged.

 

To kick it off, I will share what flavors we are considering - based on the samples we tried at the BDR:

  • Lemon
  • Carrot Cake
  • Vanilla Rum

Hopefully others will find this useful and chime in with their picks! ;)

 

Happy Planning! :D

We're getting Vanilla rum and coconut. We haven't tried them though because we didn't go to the BDR.

    @linaco80 - the dressed up starfish on top are too cute! :)

     

     

    @LisaAnthonyPoppy - OMG I didn't even think about filling! Thanks for the idea to think about that...

     

    @TinkerSofi - that sounds really yummy.

     

    Are you ladies thinking of going multi-tiered?  I'm torn (but think we are ultimately going that route) given the meal comes with so many desserts.

    Right now we have the cake for 30-40 guests. Worst case scenario, if the maybe's say no we'll have 41 people and 3 kids so I think we'll downgrade to the 20-30 people 2 tier cake for the same reason, by the time the cake comes around everyone is full

    My cake was 2 tiers and I had 45 people total. Most of us had seconds as it was super tasty and we had a slice or two left over. I love cake though so I'm never full haha. We had dinner at 530/600 ish and cake at 800.

      we are going CHEAP here with the cake because we are not allowed to bring it to the USA with us and we think people might not eat the cake as much since we have desserts too, we are looking at the cake for pics only so I don't think we are going fancy with the cake (I might change my mind)

      We were thinking about buying little boxes and give them to people before they leave. If it doesn't get eaten at the reception at least it won't go to waste :). Besides it will be nice to have a little snack when we come back from all the partying :)
