Marble cake: Can’t decide between white cake and chocolate cake? Then a marble cake is the answer.
Lemon cake: Tart and refreshing; try a lemon cake for a summer wedding. From personal observation, I should mention that women seem to like lemon flavored deserts much more than men, so make sure that your groom is okay with lemon before finalizing your order with the baker.
