I typically won't eat anything without chocolate but... brunch screams mimosa, champagne and bellinis...maybe one of those flavors.....Maybe do cupcakes with a few flavors to choose from.

Ooooh @savannahquinn, a mimosa cake sounds delicious!  I'm picturing a champagne flavored white cake with orange flavored buttercream maybe with mandarin orange slices in the filling with a beautiful orange/yellow ombre sunset color on the outside.

In my family, brunch must include a Coffee Cake (especially with pecans in the topping) or an Angel Food cake (and often both).  :)

If your friends don't like coffee, I suggest you stay away from a cappucino cake, or mocha, or tiramisu, etc.

Okay.  I don't like tiramisu cake, so i will stay away from coffee cake. 


I think i maybe will make a Angel Food cake or a Carrot cake with cream cheese frosting - Maybe a inside outside carrot cake - and brownies, verry simpel.

Ironically, coffee cake doesn't have coffee in it.  It is a style of cake with short layer of cake covered with a crumbly topping and baked.  Or that is what I think of as coffee cake anyway.

Yeah that's right. I'm just not going to make a cake with coffe tast :)

There are alternatives to standard angel cake as well, like brown sugar angel cake or chocolate..all light options. :)
