I Love Steel Magnolias, and the ‘armadilla’ grooms cake cracks me up. Apparently its a Southern tradition, but I was thinking of doing one in the shape of the Stanley Cup when I get married cause my SO and I LOVE hockey, but not the same team, so it’d be a win-win for the both of us.
Anyone do one for their wedding? I’d like input

I can’t believe no one found this thread yet! I did a groom’s cake as a complete surprise for DH. He loves audio and records and stuff like that, so I had a groom’s cake made for him in the shape of a record player. Bonus: it was non-dairy. He’s allergic to milk. Even bigger bonus: it tasted awesome!

I want to do one during the rehersal dinner for my FI, but I’m not sure what of! He is a chef, so I was hoping to do something along those lines. Any ideas? I’ve seen so many creatives ones out there!

TO Liss13: – Great topic
There was no Groom’s Cake for my First Husband… somehow we never managed to find the right occasion for it (now it is often done even at the Wedding Reception… Wedding Cake Vanilla and Groom’s Cake Chocolate)
I am hoping to have a Groom’s Cake for Mr TTR this time round… although we are Eloping some of our Friends have mentioned they’d like to have a bit of a party of us ahead (if not that I do know that his Guy Friends will be taking him out).
Like your guy, my guy is a HUGE hockey fan… lol, we like to call him Mr Hockey
I’ve already picked out the Cake Topper for his cake… will be painting the Helmet to match his favourite team… and have a few ideas for the theme / decorations on the cake as a whole as well.

I LOVE how this cake maker likes to add in the “tiny people” too at the bottom of each cake… too cute.

I had my heart set on having an xbox controller as the groom’s cake, but FI told me he would be embarrassed..!
Instead, I’m having a sexy wheel/tire combo for my handsome car enthusiast 🙂

These are all so cute. I am so set on our Stanley Cup G-cake when we get married. Not only are we big hockey fans, but like 3/4 of his friends play hockey with him, thats how he met some of his best friends, and some of them will be in the bridal party. Plus my Flyers-obessed uncle will love it. Lol.

How does a grooms cake work? It’s served at the wedding with the wedding cake? But it’s guy themed?

I love the idea of a grooms cake, but I’m a little confused by them. Are they usually for the reception or the rehersal or does it not really matter? lol

“Contemplating whether or not you should have a groom’s cake for your wedding reception? It all boils down to tradition. A groom’s cake is an old tradition that is today considered a “new” trend in the wedding world. For some, the groom’s cake tradition never really disappeared, but instead recently reemerged as a popular wedding trend. In general, a groom’s cake is a cake that is ideally given to the groom by the bride, and it is used at the wedding reception as a secondary dessert or is put on display and eaten by the groom and his groomsmen. A groom’s cake design is usually centered around a certain personality trait of the groom, or it is based on an inside joke that the bride and groom share. While the designs and purposes vary greatly, these are typically the most common themes. Traditionally a southern practice, giving a groom’s cake is often a fun gesture for the bride to plan for her new husband. These cakes have been around since the Victorian era in the eighteenth century and were customarily chocolate flavor or fruit cake style. Originally, a groom’s cake was not served at the wedding to all of the guests, but instead was cut by the bride and groom and then served to the bridal party. When the groom cake concept made its way to the United States (particularly in the South), it began being served in many different ways and its purposes and presentations changed as time went on.”
