What Is a Groom's Cake?

Bride and Groom Cake TopperA groom's cake is a separate cake dedicated to the man of the hour, normally given as a gift from the bride. The cake is usually used as a second dessert option, so the cake and frosting chosen differ from the main wedding cake. This final course reflects the groom's interests and is typically a one-layer cake, though it can be elaborate, as shown below. Sometimes used as dessert at the rehearsal dinner, but more frequently served at the wedding, this fun sweet stands as a juxtaposition to the femininity which normally dominates weddings. It is not necessary, but serves as a fun ode to the groom.



Groom's Cake Ideas

If you're giving your groom his cake as a surprise, really think about what he likes: what are his interests? What is his favorite food? What does he binge-watch on Netflix? What movie can he quote from beginning to end? If he had a completely free day, where would he choose to spend it? Answer those questions, and you're sure to give your man a cake he'll never forget. Check out a couple of the ideas below, and then get to planning your groom's cake!

I have seen these at weddings recently. I don't know when it started but it is kinda cute. I think I will have one at our wedding. Since he is a lawyer, maybe a scale of justice would be cute or a gavel. I think he would get a kick out of it.

Such gorgeous cakes!! I love this idea...
