Groom's Cake 101

Groom's cakes are a new trend, though they've been around for some time. It's originally a southern tradition (and a sticky one at that).

In the good 'ol days the groom's cake was sliced and boxed up for all the unmarried girls at the wedding. They would take them home (and here comes the stickiness) and place it under her pillow, in hopes of dreaming of their future husbands. I like the new tradition better.

Today, the groom's cake is an addition to the wedding cake. It can be served during the rehearsal dinner, or be for the groom and his best men, or cut up as favors for the guest. Groom's cakes are typically fun and modeled after an interest of the groom. Ex: sports, hobbies, team colors, an animal, profession, etc. It should never be grander than the wedding cake, but it should be fun. Though not a necessity, groom's cakes can be a memorable addition to your wedding.
