I need some help to decide on a cake... which one do you like?

A co-worker is retiring next week and somehow I've been recruited to bake the cake. I've narrowed it down to these as I know she likes the flavours but can't decide.
I'm confident making all of these, and it'll be big enough to serve 50, so depending on the cake chosen will most likely be tiered.

Help me out!

  • I feel that acid is really important in cakes otherwise it's just too sweet. For that reason, I would go with B. The fresh raspberries should really help cut through the sweetness and chocolate is also nice because it has lots of bitter notes. For that same reason, I'd be against white chocolate as I feel that that is too much of a one-note sweet flavor. I hope you post a picture of the cake!

    • I've made that particular recipe once but think I'd change it for this... the white and pink layers are basically a white chocolate mouse with raspberry in the middle so I'd change it for more balance with the tart.
      If I could do another dessert I can make an amazing lemon meringue cheesecake. I'd probably lick every slice as I cut it so I wouldn't have to share it's that good 🤤💦

      Thanks 😊 I can't boil an egg though lol. We've all got our restrictions

  • The yellow cake with the ganache is the most universal. Nobody dislikes yellow cake!

    Those who don't want the chocolate can simply wipe it off.

    This is the most "universal" cake for a variety of guests! 😋

  • Go with the mousse cake... it's light fluffy and won't overly fill someone up... just the right amount of sweet and great texture after a heavy supper most likely,,,,

  • First one is good enough, I can already imagine the taste of eating it. I vote for that.

    I don't like the rest because its simply too hard to cut the cake & I personally don't like cake with fruits/berries with it.

  • White chocolate is not chocolate. It is made from cocoa butter, sugar and milk solids. In other words it is an impostor.
    I picked dark chocolate mud and raspberry. My second choice would be chocolate and raspberry mousse

    • All berries are so good at the moment too!

    • True! Luckily they're in season! Otherwise it'll cost an arm, a leg and maybe an eyeball lol

  • I went with the plain yellow with ganache because I'm not a big fan of so much chocolate... though I think the dark chocolate mud n raspberry would be a nice cake too. Since you had buttercream products as an option, why don't you change the plain yellow to a vanilla buttercream or something, and maybe add some sugared fruits to the ganache?
