You pay for it–it’s to go along with the wedding cake at the reception.

I would say whether you do it at the rehearsal or the reception you should still pay for it but that’s just my opinion, I don’t know if it’s “technically” correct. I see grooms cakes as a kind of surprise for the groom from the bride, not from his parents.

ETA: I’m getting the cake for the rehearsal and paying for it myself.

Ours was gifted although I was planning on paying for it. I surprised him at the reception.

I think the bride is supposed to pay for it.  It’s your personal gift to the groom. 

I have heard of the cake being at both the RD or the reception though.

I was planning to give him a grooms cake at the wedding, but his parents brought it up on their own the other day saying they were thinking about one at the rehearsal dinner. We chatted about it and we’ll surprise him with it at the rehearsal, and this also means that they’ll be paying for it… but I get to design it!

I’m going to pay for his groom’s cake myself, I plan on giving it to him at the RD since we don’t have any plans for dessert.

The groom’s family pays for the groom’s cake. In the South it is normally served at the reception.
