@Skittles131:  We thought a groom’s cake was just too much.  Just another thing to deal with and have to take a picture off.  I think they’re pretty needless and go unnoticed.

If it means a lot to you then do it but, for the most part, they don’t really seem all that great.

@FleeSircus:  I’m surprising FI with a Flash groom’s cake, but at the rehearsal dinner! We will have more than enough cake at the wedding. A rehearsal cake will be smaller, so you can have a small apple pie with Mario decor around it, or a cute cake like the one you posted. 🙂

we are planning something like this. We both ride motorcycles and my FI saw this online and made a request. I’m perfectly fine with it and think it’s funny. In all the stress of planning a wedding, this is the one thing I’m happy to relinquish control of. Let loose and get him a Mario cake!

We had a red velvet groom’s cake and it had a picture of the subway map, which my husband is OBSESSED with.  It worked out really well and people liked the option of different cake flavors.  My wedding cake was white chocolate strawberry shortcake.

Honestly did not know tere was such a thing as a groom cake! But Lousianablue has a good point. Say you have a traditional fruitcake as the wedding cake, the grooms cake could be plain sponge for those who hate fruitcake. And that mario cake is cute! I say get that!

You could surprise him at the rehearsal dinner with the Mario Cake, or have the topper on an Apple Pie at the reception.

I also was thinking of doing a grooms cake. I was thinking of a shelby cobra (which he wants to build)

BUT i think (maybe) i will save it when it can be the center of attention, like for his birthday. I bought my fiance shelby cobra cuff links so I think that will be a great surprise!
