The Groom’s Cake – one of the few distinctly masculine wedding features – is a Southern tradition making a popular modern-day comeback. A surprise or gift from the bride, the groom’s cake is customarily served at the rehearsal dinner or as an alternative to the wedding cake at the reception. Traditional groom’s cakes feature masculine colors and rich flavors like chocolate, red velvet or the groom’s favorite flavor.
However, contemporary groom’s cakes themed for his favorite sports team, hobby or profession are making quite a stir at receptions across the country, not just in the south. And following wedding cake trends set by shows like Cake Boss and Ace of Cakes, intricate and ornate groom’s cakes are becoming quite popular. But no matter whether you’re interested in sweet and simple or styled and stunning, any groom is sure to appreciate the thoughtful gesture of presenting him with his own special treat.
For more inspiration, read on to see a few custom groom’s cakes from the bakery at Puff ‘n Stuff Catering, and some ideas from around the web that are fit for a king (and your groom)!
