We probably won’t do one because I dont think my Fiance even knows what one is….and he doesn’t like sweets.  We’ll put the $ elsewhere!

I think it’s a great idea.

I’m doing it at the rehearsal dinner and I was able to get this completely cute cake topper for it:

We are getting married at the start of baseball season and he’s a huge Brewers fan so I thought it would be appropriate.

I am planning to have a groom’s cake.  My Fiance initially said he wanted to celebrate his Scottish ancestry and wear a kilt for the ceremony.  My mom and I talked him out of it.  I am thinking of doing something with a kilt for the groom’s cake.

We did one and served it at the rehearsal dinner.  Instead of a whimsical design, I let him pick the flavor which ended up being peanut butter with a chocolate drizzle.  The cake was definitely a huge hit!

I LOVE the idea! My boy is a huge Bears fan so I want to do something with that.

I think its such a fun idea! I’m not sure I’ll end up doing it… because my budget is getting tight… but I think its a great way to show the groom’s personality a little. Is your groom picking it out himself or are you doing it as a surprise?

My brother had it and it was one of his most favorite parts of the wedding!

For all you baseball fans:  When my SIL and Brother-In-Law got married, she did a baseball-themed grooms cake for the rehearsal dinner.  She went to the local grocery store and got a sheet cake that was decorated like a baseball diamond.  Then she ordered little baseball guys to field the team from the her favorite team and his favorite team.  It was cheap, and it was PERFECT.

I had two cop car cakes done for my hubby, one was his and one was mine. Unfortunately, mine was totaled in a near accident when my cake was being delivered so we ended up with just his. The funny thing is….it didn’t even get cut up and served so my Father-In-Law took it home with him. I will say that the car didn’t turn out like the pics I had seen of other cars she had done so I was a little disappointed.

I wanted to do a groom’s cake but my venue doesn’t allow outside food or drink.  So I’m surprising him with one on our first anniversary!

Wait, not everyone does a groom’s cake? I’m from the South, never realized it was regional, just thought everyone did it. ^_^ We’re doing a cake shaped like The Swamp (Florida Gators stadium). His mom’s making it, which is great. Cheap, and it’s a good way to let her be involved. And she’s done on like it before and it looked great!

Oh, and we’re serving it at the reception. I’ve never seen one done at the rehearsal. Northern variation on the tradition perhaps?

And I’m really glad you brought this up, I was forgetting to take the groom’s cake into account when figuring out how much cake we need!

I wanted to do it for cause I think it’s such a great and SWEET idea! My Fiance said no, that’s what the wedding cake is for! I guess from his point of view, the wedding cake won’t be his!

I like your bowling ball idea. It’s great when you can see the two different personalities: bride vs. groom.  Our groom’s cake was served at the reception and was in the shape of Texas.  The flavor alone was descriptive of my husband: chocolate with more chocolate.
