Cake Flavor Poll; Help me choose my flavors.

As I don't really like cake, I'm having trouble picking flavors for our cake tasting. We get three combos for the tasting. If you had to pick three combos out of these choices, please list them. Also, please let me know which you would like best.

Cake Flavors

Buttery Yellow Vanilla – light and butter in taste, flavored with real vanilla
Traditional White – flavored with real almond flavoring for that traditional wedding cake taste
Devil’s Food Chocolate – rich and chocolaty.
German Chocolate – sweeter and lighter chocolate flavor then the devil’s food
Chocolate Chip – buttery yellow vanilla cake with mini chocolate chips for a touch of chocolate
Red Velvet – traditional southern red velvet cake
Marble – the best of both worlds, yellow cake with chocolate swirls
Lemon – buttery yellow cake flavored with real lemon for a sweet citrus flavor
Strawberry – real strawberries are used to add a natural sweetness and light pink color
Pineapple – yellow cake flavored with real pineapple juice for a tropical treat
Coconut – rich coconut flavored yellow cake for a taste of the islands
Carrot – traditional spicy and sweet made with freshly grated carrots
Italian Cream – a delicate vanilla butter cake with pecans and coconut added for a flavorful taste
Spice – a wonderful aroma and taste come from cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and other fresh spices

Cake Fillings

Traditional buttercream – sweet and buttery, just like the icing on the cake
Cream Cheese buttercream – made with real cream cheese and butter for a rich taste.
·        Add pecans: great with yellow, white, carrot, spice, or red velvet cake
·        Add strawberries: a perfect choice for yellow or white cake
·        Add pecans and coconut
Chocolate buttercream – rich, dark chocolate and real butter
Whipped Chocolate Ganache – dark chocolate and cream whipped to perfection
Bavarian Cream – traditionally found in pastries, this creamy vanilla filling goes great with yellow or white cake.
Coconut Cream – a creamy filling loaded with coconut.
Strawberry – real strawberries are used in this all natural jam like filling
Pineapple – crushed pineapple combined with thick, sweet syrup
Lemon – fresh lemon curd with whipped cream folded in for a mousse like texture
Raspberry – real raspberries are used to make this filling.
Amaretto cream – rich almond flavored pastry cream filling that goes great with yellow or white cake
Traditional German Chocolate cake filling – a rich, buttery, caramel filling full of pecans and coconut
Praline Cream – the great taste of pecan pralines in a creamy filling, great with yellow or white cake

    Thanks everyone! Our cake is 3 tiers so we get three different flavors for the wedding cake.

    His cake will be chocolate. With strawberries covered in chocolate to look like tuxedos.

    You know, a friend of mine and his wife didn't like cake, so they actually used cheesecake.  Had a cherry covered option and a plain.  Since you don't like cake, perhaps an alternative like this would be an option.

    Oh, and their cheesecake idea was a HIT. Everyone said it was way better than wedding cake lol.
