    My grandmother let it slip that I was getting a groom’s cake…so, I kept the design a secret. Darling Husband approved the flavor I had picked out for him. The cake was served at the reception.

    I don’t have any definite plans yet, but I think that my fiancé will know about the groom’s cake (and decide on the flavor) but the design will be a surprise. We will probably serve it at the rehearsal dinner.

    `He knows his getting one – matter of fact, he’s designing it. And it’ll be served at the reception. It’s actually two small ones, one sugar free (for our diabetic/non-sugar eating guests) and one key lime (because he likes it). I got to pick the flavor for the wedding cake. 🙂

    He used to work at a bakery in high school – the bakery doing our wedding cake – and so he’s going to go in and help work on his grooms cakes. It’s so him. He’s really into it. 🙂

    I won’t be having a grooms cake, but I know in other weddings I’ve been to, they served it at the reception. The grooms cake was usually a different flavor from the brides cake, so it gave guests an option as to which flavor they wanted.

    I’d never even heard of a groom’s cake until I started reading WB. We’re not doing one.

    @QBbride: I had never heard of one either until I became engaged. I think it is a Southern thing?

    Sorry small hijack here. This thread reminded me of one of my favorite movies. Steel Magnolia’s This…

    Drum: Ouiser, can we call a truce long enough for me to get a piece of cake?

    [Ouiser slices him the tail piece of an armadillo cake]

    Drum: Aww, thanks Ouiser. Nothin’ like a good piece of ass.

    I couldn’t find the pic of Ouiser cutting off the tail end but this scene was hilarious!

    I’m not sure yet if we will be having a grooms cake but I love the idea.

    I showed Darling Husband a picture of my inspiration of the cake once, and then he saw our groom’s cake officially at the reception, where it was served.

    But I think a surprise would be cool!

    I’m getting my fiance a groom’s cake that looks like a pizza! it works out perfectly, too because I like white cake and he likes chocolate so I can have the cake flavor that i want for our traditional cake, and he can have chocolate for his groom’s cake! oh, and it’s a surprise for the reception 🙂

    We had a low key, casual rehearsal dinner (salad and pizza) so that we could invite all out of town guests. Since about half the wedding guests were at the rehearsal dinner and since the wedding cake and a dessert buffet were both included in the wedding package, the rehearsal dinner seemed like an ideal place for it. I told my husband that the bridesmaids would help us out by bringing cookies and brownies for dessert…but really they showed up with this awesome cake that blew his mind!

    Our groom’s cake was a surprise for my groom. We served it at the rehearsal dinner as dessert for our guests. He loved the surprise!

    Okay, I must ask since I have been hearing alot of about Grooms cakes. What does the Grooms cake stand for? We don’t have that where I come from. Is it only supposed that the groom is the only one eating from that cake?
