I realize grooms cakes are more of a Southern tradition, but is anybody else doing one? We’ve discussed doing a mario themed one (FI is a gamer and I love Mario also, one year we went as Mario and Peach for halloween so its kinda our thing) but Fiance seemed to really want a Zelda cake, but we agreed not enough people would get it. Now i’m thinking of surprising him with either a Zelda cake, or a 3 tiered cake with a tier of Mario, Zelda, annnnd something else but I dont know what yet.
Anybody else doing a fun grooms cake?

@MrsNerdy: I’m doing one. My Fiance is a huge poker player so I’m having a poker table made out of the grooms cake with chips and everything. Something like this!

Im definitely doing a grooms cake! We’re having an unusal cake setup. We’re doing a main cake – 3 tiers – but probably a little smaller than typical wedding cakes, and then we’re having 12-13 additional cakes – all different styles – all on a main cake table. So it will be this amazing display of a bunch of different cakes. Anyways, I’m planning to create a grooms cake that includes lots of different things that are important to him and us. Kind of like a funky collage on a cake. Im so excited about it!

I had planned on it but my Fiance isn’t a huge fan of cake so we are doing groom’s cookies to be served at the rehearsal dinner. 😛

It was a huge hit.

Yes we are. FH knows he will have a cake but doesn’t know what it will look like. He’s from Texas and likes the Spurs, so I plan to have the baker make a cake in the shape of texas and put the Spurs team logo on it. Hope he likes it 🙂

My fiance is getting a subway map cake. He is obsessed with the NYC subway maps. We have like five or six up in our apartment.

I am making our grooms cake. I have some experience in cakes, and can pull off a 10 or 12 inch round chocolate to go with the brides cake, which is vanilla and raspberry pretty quickly. The topper/theme is the lighthouse we were engaged at. Here’s a pic of the lighthouse – it should be fairly easy to replicate in rice krispy treats and fondant, and I’ll put it ontop of a buttercream cake.

My Fiance found a picture of a krispy Kreme wedding cake that he keeps teasing me about ordering.
So I’m thinking of surprising him with a krispy kreme grooms cake.
or I may go with the superhero cake. It’s a toss up.

re doing wedding pie instead of grooms cake. It gives people more choices and is his absolute favourite dessert.

My Fiance is a big gamer to, I’m not sure what we are doing yet as far as cakes. If you can’t decide between zelda and mario, you should do a nintendo themed cake. Check this one out.
