Red Velvet With Whipped Vanilla Frosting

Topped with vanilla frosting rather than the standard cream-cheese frosting, this red velvet cake was dense, flavorful, and not too sweet, which made the vanilla frosting a welcome addition. "Not too chocolate, which I love," said one taster. "I liked the frosting combo, as it kept things light."

Lemon Meringue With Buttercream Frosting

This dainty lemon cake (tragically, not pictured) had fresh lemon-curd filling, which won over even those of us who normally pass on lemon cake. Said one taster, "It tasted like real lemons, not the artificial flavor. Perfect for a Summer wedding," with a perfect balance of sweet and tart.
