Happy Friday, everyone ~ let's talk cake ... the groom's cake to be exact! Yes, this wonderful gem is reappearing at weddings everywhere. After a hiatus of several years, groom's cakes are making a comeback ~ it's a fun way for Mr. Groom to let his personality shine through on your big day!
Offering a groom’s cake is also a wonderful way to add variety for your guests during the reception, as the groom's cake tends to be more informal and varied in flavor. Some wonderful choices might be a cheesecake or perhaps even a tiramisu dessert. Because it’s a “less serious” than the wedding cake, it’s not confined by wedding tradition protocol. Some couples choose to serve their groom's cake at the rehearsal dinner, while others save it for the wedding reception as an alternative to the wedding cake.
The groom's cake can either be chosen by the bride or groom, but some grooms like to make their choice without their bride’s knowledge. What fun! Adding their own personal flare to the design makes a groom’s cake even more special. I recently saw one in the shape of a baseball cap, reflecting the hat that the groom had worn for years ~ complete with his favorite team's insignia.
However you choose present your groom’s cake, make sure that it reflects Mr. Groom’s personality and taste ~ that’s the fun of it!
