Fun Groom’s Cake Ideas


Of all the wedding day “traditions,” the groom’s cake tends to be one of the fun ones. After all, how great is it to have a special recognition in place for your groom on a day that can sometimes revolve pretty heavily around you, the bride?

The incorporation of a groom’s cake stems from the Victorian era when there were three cakes at a wedding — the actual wedding cake, which was served to the guests; the groom’s cake, which was served to the groomsmen; and the bride’s cake, which was served to the bridesmaids.

Grooms’ cakes usually consist of dark chocolate and/or liqueur. This served as a contrast to the wedding cake, which is usually white or light-colored. However, don’t feel confined to fit that mold. These days, the groom’s cake can come in many different shapes, sizes, and flavors. 

Now more than ever, many bakers decorate grooms’ cakes to the fit your favorite guy’s favorite hobbies and flavors. A cake that displays a pastime – such as golfing, fishing or guitar playing – is perfectly fitting. His favorite football team or even his alma mater also make a fine choice.

Have a groom who doesn’t love cake? First of all, he’s missing out! But secondly, you do still have plenty of options! For example, a donut, crepe, or Oreo “cake” may better hit the spot. Likewise, you could even ask his mom to whip up an array of cookies or his favorite childhood sweets or create a fake cake with his drink of choice!

Wondering when the perfect time to serve the groom’s cake might be? Many couples serve the cake at the wedding after the traditional wedding cake is served. However, another popular option is to offer up this delicious treat at the rehearsal dinner. With the latter, you don’t have to worry about the aesthetic of the wedding and the groom’s cake clashing – as they’re often two very different entities.
