I have a groom who doesn't like chocolate (gasp). What would you offer as an alternative (wedding cake will be amaretto)? I'm starting with:

Italian cream

Pistachio cardamom


Peanut butter 

Vanilla chai


Pumpkin ginger

Red velvet in case he's open to a little chocolate. 

Am I forgetting some classic combination?

Around here all the grooms want funfetti. The bride will start saying "This is going to sound weird, but he wants..." and I'll say "funfetti." And the bride gets all wide-eyed and says "HOW DID YOU KNOW THAT!!??" It's so stupid.

I had a groom that wanted spice cake and still likes to have my spice cake when I want to make him something special.

I did a stacked pineapple upside down cake in the form of a Doctor Who Tardis for a groom's cake--it was really good but took a little extra structure to keep it from falling over--unfortunately I didn't add that extra structure.  It was set up on a tilt as if it were landing, but lasted until just before the cutting of the cakes--I caught it falling, and help it up as if it was planned that way (lol) and stuck an extra down in it just in time.

I had made it by making a normal one-layer pineapple upside down cake, then cut that into 5" squares when it was cooled, and just stacked them until I had the necessary height. It was fine until it was set on the tilted base layer.
