I think it’s supposed to be a gift for the groom? Since most of the wedding would typically be for the bride… right?

I have known it to start in the south. It is a cake that is a gift from the bride that represents the grooms interests or hobbies.

According to Martha, and who would argue with Martha? (let’s not forget she has “street credit”) 


“Traditionally, the groom’s cake is not served at the wedding. If you are not serving any desserts other than wedding cake, however, you might break with tradition and serve the groom’s cake to all your guests after the wedding cake is served. Perhaps more typically, individual slices are boxed up before the wedding and given to the unmarried women at the reception. Legend has it that if an unmarried woman sleeps with a slice of the groom’s cake under her pillow, she will dream of her future husband.”-Read more at Marthastewartweddings.com: Groom’s Cake 


My personal favorite is the Armadillo red velvet cake from “steel magnolias” Clearly because it’s hideous!


Grooms cakes are quite creative

Quite frankly, I should get Mr.06 a play-station 3 cake…

ha, I just posted something about it……also wondering…

I read that its traditional in the South….

It can be eaten at the reception or the rehearsal dinner…

it can be a surprise for the groom

it used to be traditionally made of fruitcake with liquor soaking it….but now it’s usually darker then a wedding cake, like chocolate

it usually has a more fun theme, like centered around a hobby of the groom

go to google…..then click on image..type in grooms cakes, TONS of grooms cake pictures will pop up…..if you type in a theme, such as basketball groomscakes, tons of the BB cakes will pop up!

good luck!

i think i might want to have one too…hehe.
