10 Groom’s Cakes That Will Blow Your Mind

While you should definitely weigh in on the official wedding cake decision, if things don’t end up going your way (so…many…buttercream…flowers), all is not lost.  You still have the option of an additional Groom’s cake.

The Groom’s cake originated in Victorian England, but was picked up in modern times by the American South.  Now, the tradition has taken off and grooms everywhere are having their cakes and eating ‘em too.

The limits on Groom’s cakes are almost nonexistent (exercise some judgment- no, boobs are not a good choice), so all colors, shapes, and themes are a go.  Some couples prefer to have this cake at the rehearsal dinner rather than at the wedding reception (so its awesomeness doesn’t make any other cakes feel bad).

Here are some best in class Groom’s Cakes.  But you can top them if you try.  We believe in you.
