While in the past the bride’s cake used to steal the show, there is a growing trend in which the groom’s cake takes or shares the spotlight. Either way, the groom’s cake can be a quirky, fun and delicious way to make your wedding unique and memorable.
Traditionally, the groom’s cake is a cake entirely influenced by the groom, representing his tastes and favorite hobbies. It’s becoming as popular as the traditional wedding cake and it’s gives the groom a chance to show off their quirky, intimate side. It also offers a chance for greater flavor exploration and taste variety. For example, many grooms’ cakes now feature candy-bar centric flavors or unique combinations that one wouldn’t normally find in a traditional wedding cake.
Many brides like to surprise their fiancé with a groom’s cake. It’s their way of saying “thank you” as well as an intimate and loving way to give him a moment to shine at the wedding. If you’re at a loss for ideas, try combining his favorite desserts, like a chocolate-covered strawberry/chocolate cake mashup or tried and true doughnuts. Other themes include sports, career-themed cakes, favorite food-shaped cakes, cars, hobbies and pop culture. Whatever speaks to the groom’s personality or likes.
