Groom’s Cakes Galore

Most brides know what they want, and chances are good they’ve known since they were a little girl. It’s easy to let your groom get lost in all your plans and dreams of big white dresses, flowers, decorations, and bridesmaids! But you don’t want to forget that at the end of the day, the wedding is all about the two of you and it’s important to include him in your wedding.

One way to do something special for him is to get him a groom’s cake. This way he can have a cake that’s special to him and is his favorite kind of cake! A lot of brides choose to make it a secret and surprise the groom at the wedding, where they are typically served at the reception or sometimes the rehearsal dinner. Most groom’s cakes feature something special to him, like an interest or hobby. Some examples include fishing, golf, sports, video games, or exercise. Regardless of what he’s in to, groom’s cakes just look so cool! Here are a few awesome groom’s cakes we’ve made recently! [Read more…]
