Fave Cake Flavor

I'm trying to decide what flavors to request for my next tasting since I am scoping out a new baker...mine has turned flaky on several other brides and we are afraid to risk it. More on that later.

Meanwhile, I have come up with red velvet, almond pound, carrot (FI's cake), and chocolate...our cake will be four tiers so I am at a lost for another favor. My original baker had a flavor called butter, but no one else seems to know exactly what she considered butter.

What is your fave flavor? I want a crowd pleaser...

    A few weeks a go I tried a slice of sweet potato cake for the first time in my life and it was Delicious! I forgot what the frosting was, though.

    My fav is lemon cake with raspberry filling! FI picked chocolate cake with cream cheese butter cream filling for his tier, I thought it would be really sweet but it wasn't too bad.

    Maybe you can do something with a peach flavored filling?

    I hate cake and am not a big fan of sweets anyway... Back home in Nigeria, They make sponge cake which is SOOOOOOOOOOOO AMAZING..If the bakery can't make sponge cake, i don't care what the cake taste like so will let hubby decide.

    I'll be home in Columbus during the week of Thanksgiving!  What's the name of the cake shop?  Maybe I'll buy a small cake to have as one of the desserts for Thanksgiving!
