What are some of the most popular wedding cake flavors?


The cake flavor you ultimately choose is really up to you and your fiance. It's your day; you can eat whatever you like. The most popular wedding cake flavors are lemon, vanilla, chocolate, spice, and carrot, but that doesn’t mean you’re limited to these. If your tastes are more exotic and you're working with a talented pastry chef, the wedding cake flavor options are endless..

Trendy bakeries now offer a host of cake types: cheesecakes (which can be stacked and tiered, by the way), meringue cakes, Baked Alaska, chocolate cakes, fruit or cakes, ice-cream cakes, carrot cakes, coffeecakes, pound cakes, mousse cakes, and angel food cakes. Just give in to your taste buds. A good baker will help you choose a texture, filling, and icing that will complement one another.

When it comes to frosting options, wedding cakes iced in buttercream -- which is smooth and creamy, but not too sweet -- are the best value in terms of price. Whipped cream is a light, soft icing that, like buttercream, is temperamental in heat and humidity. If you’re getting married in the summer, you may want to consider a cake covered in rolled fondant, a combination of sugar, corn syrup, gelatin, and glycerin that holds up better in heat.
