I think a grooms cake is completely worth it! It is a great surprise and makes for a great photo-op! I was thinking about doing the grooms cake at the rehearsal dinner, but then I remembered there would be no prof photography. Hands down..I love the idea of a grooms cake 🙂

My husband really really wanted something that was totally his idea and he was very attached to coming up with something unique and “all him” for his groom’s cake.  He ended up choosing an assortment of pies, which made him happy because he LOVES pie and everyone else loved it too.  In our case–totally worth the money!

Our grooms cake isn’t much of a cake. I’m having a “Junk Food Mountain” made for Fiance. He loves all the novelty desserts (twinkies, ho-hos, funny bones, etc…) so I am having gourmet versions of these made as well as mini apple cider donuts (fall theme wedding), and mini cinnamon buns (FI’s favorite food EVER!). They will be piled together in the shape of a mountain and our guests will be able to pick and choose what they would like to have with the wedding cake.

It’s not really a tradition where I’m from, so it seems silly to me to have a “Grooms” cake.  It honestly feels like a tradition that some cake baker “created” to make more $.  (Keep in mind I have NO idea how old this tradition is, so my comment is not meant to offend anyone)  Why pay more money for something we don’t need?  (Btw, my Fiance isn’t a big fan of cake, so it was a non-issue for us)  Plus, we have the wedding cake.  Who needs more?

@Whimsical.Sprite: I’m in the South. There aren’t many weddings here that don’t have a Groom’s cake.

It’s an early American tradition. One version is the groom had a cake to share with his friends while the bride had time with her bridesmaids. A baker didn’t make it. It’s just an old tradition. It seems to be alive mostly here in the south. We tend to cling to that sort of thing. A lot of them here are hunting or golf related. lol

I’m def doing a grooms cake!!! It’s a nice surprise for him since the brides get to pick so much. And I like the idea of doing it the next day. We are doing a breakfast with our out of town friends:Smile

If you can afford to do it, I say go for it because so much about the wedding day is stuff the bride picked and this is really one thing that is 100 percent for him.

We had a really small wedding so it would have been silly for us to have even more cake. But I think they’re realy cute and a nice surprise for the groom. My sil surprised my brother with this, he LOVES cookie cake and they’re not expensive at all.

@Jushackett: Not doing a grooms cake. We are not Southern and that’s a southern tradition. ^_^ We are going for cupcakes because it’s what we both love.

He’s making his own. He’s worked at a bakery before making cakes and he wants to – so I said sure go for it.
