Even the traditional white cake can have a very tasteful flavor other than vanilla. If you've decided to have a white cake, enhance its flavor by adding some fillings like custard, white chocolate, strawberry, caramel and any flavor that you want. If you want a fruity filling, have mango or orange, or you can use both in separate tiers. Lemon sponge cake layered with lemon curd and lemon butter cream is also a perfect wedding cake flavor.

Today, many couples want a unique wedding cake rather than the traditional white cake. Others just want to be unique while others want their wedding cake to match the theme of the wedding. Like for example, for an autumn wedding, a rich flavored cake like a lemon cake or a chocolate cake would be perfect to match the theme and the autumn atmosphere. Other rich and unique wedding cake flavors that you may want to have on your wedding day are chocolate flavored cakes and cakes with fruits and nuts; fruits and nuts can be a flavor, filling or topping to your chocolate cake

12 Unique and Fun Wedding Cake Flavors To Consider

Still not sure what flavor to choose? Here are some additional wedding flavors you should think about!

Gorgeous Pink and Gold Abstract Floral Wedding Cake
  1. Bananas Foster: This flavor was born in the French Quarter, allowing you to bring southern flavors into your wedding. Who does not love New Orleans? If you want a flavor profile that combines bananas, caramel, cinnamon, and rum with a delicious butter cake – this is the one!
  2. Coconut: If you want a texture and flavor combination, go for coconut. This is not a flavor usually seen at weddings, especially on big cakes covered in coconut – it would really stand out!
  3. Chai Spice: This is not a cake flavor your mother or grandmother had. But it is perfect for a modern wedding. If you are planning a naked cake with delicious layers of cream cheese frosting, this is a fabulous flavor to use!
  4. Peanut Butter Cup: Peanut Butter Cup, Peanut Butter, or Chocolate Peanut Butter are great flavors for the peanut butter lover. Although completely delicious and decadent, make sure to have an alternative for people with peanut allergies.
  5. Cranberry Orange: If you are having a fall or winter wedding, you might want to bring some of the season's flavors into your affair. This is a lovely flavor combination. The cake or cake table can be decorated with sugared cranberries and orange slices.
  6. Orange Chocolate: Another beautiful winter flavor to consider is orange chocolate. You can do this with milk or dark chocolate, allowing the rich cocoa flavor to be brightened by a little citrus kick.
  7. Traditional White: There is nothing wrong with a traditional white or yellow cake. Go classic if you love the basics and want to leave your decorating options open.
  8. Champagne Cake: You can raise traditional to exceptional with a champagne cake with a fruit purée filling.
  9. Red Velvet: Another lovely choice is red velvet. You can do so much with this flavor and color scheme. You may let the red bleed through with a naked cake design, or you may opt for a more traditional design that is offset by the rich red color of the cake once cut into.
  10. Almond Amaretto: Another modern choice that brides and grooms choose is almond amaretto. This is a lovely flavor for nut lovers who want an upscale and sophisticated cake.
  11. Spiced Pear Cake: This flavor has become more popular in the last several years. Spiced pear can be used all year long, and you can add more different flavors to accentuate this mature and tasty choice. For instance, you could use icing choices like cream cheese, chai tea, or salted caramel.
  12. Chocolate Hazelnut: This is another flavor rising in popularity. If you love the idea of nuts but do not want peanuts or almonds, the hazelnut is perfect. The cake can also use a combination of whole nuts, chopped nuts, and hazelnut spread to really bring out the flavor.
