Here’s a topic your groom will delight over…choosing the wedding cake flavor! So many flavors, so little time.
When choosing flavors, keep in mind there are 100 guests or so to consider as well. You have the option to be very fancy or very simple here, but either way your wedding cake will be a great treat for your guests and a great way to end the night.

I don’t know about you, but my sweet tooth is on the hunt right about now.
Marriage is about compromises, but if you can’t decide between flavors, you don’t have to! You can also customize, you don’t have to! You can customize the cake by tiers for more variety and more deliciousness.

If you still can’t decide between flavors and plan to do a groom’s cake, you can also pick favorite flavors for that cake, too.
Don’t forget about the cupcakes! My personal favorite treat, you can have a variety of different cupcake flavors. If you want some tradition, but love the wedding cupcake idea too, you can have the top layer/tier be a small cake! The best of both worlds and part of my dream wedding plan.
