I got my DH a groom’s cake for the wedding.  I didn’t even think about it taking away from the wedding cake, it didn’t go with our theme but I think that’s kind of the point of the groom’s cake — it’s fun!

Here’s a pic of both cakes – you decide how they look together 🙂

My fiance is also a fireman and I’m having a firetruck grooms cake being made and the ladder will connect to the wedding cake! The groom will be on the ladder and the bride sitting on the cake!!

@Orchd12:  Awesome idea!

 

@kperry0427:  Can you look at some of their previous work?  I actually got the idea for DH’s grooms cake from my baker’s Facebook page!

Totally do it. My fiance is a master griller, so his groom’s cake will be shaped like a prime rib… but red velvet cake inside so I don’t care what the outside looks like lol.

@Orchd12:  

part of our theme was a construction theme (DH’s family business, and our business is heavy equipment) so I had our baker make him a crane cake, it came out AWESOME!  You guys could just have them adapt it for a fire truck/hook and ladder or something.  The boom of the crane actually had a PVC pipe inside it!  they even put chocolate powdered crunchies all on the base to look like dirt.

It’s now in our freezer.

here are a few pics (Kustom was his family’s crane business, the other side of the boom had our business name, Easle):

 

 

The last pic is our silly best man at our house at brunch the next day, but it’s a good closeup.

 

the big crane holding the crane cake–DH made that specifically for our wedding…it now resides in our yard.  It had our Just Married sign for months, then Santa’s sleigh, and I’m going to turn it into a flower basket holder next.
