If you did it for the rehearsal dinner than you can make it just big enough for everyone you are inviting to have a piece or two.

I am doing this as well! I had thoughts about it but once I seen how mrs cupcake did hers I was set!

I dont think it has to specifically feed a certain amount of people as this won’t be ‘main’ cake. At least that is how we are doing it (we are also serving dessert, and have enough wedding cake to feed our guests) so I am unsure.

I plan to have a regular cake and a grooms cake. The grooms cake is being made by my Mother-In-Law and it’s traditional fruit cake. I plan to get a custom figurine topper made :-)http://www.nicolewclark.com/Welcome.html

The plan is to cut and give this cake to our parents  to store and eat on our first anniversary. Or consume when our first child is born…that’s supposedly the tradition.

We are doing a grooms cake at the reception and its big enough to feed about half of our guests.  We are doing cupcakes as our main cake and plan on having a late night snack bar with sweets as well.  We’ll probably have the grooms cake cut and set out on a table so that people who want a piece can just come and get it themselves.  Whereas the cupcakes will be placed at each persons seat.  It is HIGHLY unlikely that everyone will want both a piece of the main cake and a piece of the grooms cake.  Especially if you have other desserts available as well.  At most weddings I’ve been to a lot of people don’t even eat the main cake!

If you do it for the rehearsal it should be able to feed everyone. But if you do it for the reception it doesn’t have to feed everyone, especially if you really want to have your cake.

I’m surpriseing Mr.Bobby with one at the rehearsal. In the shape of his favorite guitar(Lead guitarist in a band)

We just ordered our cake this past weekened. After sending my fiance on a walk, I spoke w/ the baker about a groom’s cake. I was planning on having it at the wedding and she said to make it for 25 people. She also said that most people don’t even cut the groom’s cake at the wedding. We decided to have it at the wedding, but save it to eat at the luncheon we are having the next day for all our out of town guests. Hope that helps!!

I am surprising my Fiance with a groom’s cake at the wedding reception. The idea to do it was more for the fun and excitement then for eating it. It will only serve about 30 people. We have an amazing wedding cake though, that will feed all our guests!

My Fiance is a big racing fan (NASCAR) and a big supporter of his alumni, Auburn University. I have incorporated the two into an amazing cake. I can’t wait for him to see it!

I am from Philly too! We are doing a Grooms Cake at the rehearsal (because the idea sounds too fun to pass up.) And no, no oen I know has ever done one before. But, we are doing the Bacon (really buttercream cake). Also, here is a thought. We are doing Out of Town Bags filled with Tastycakes (Philly-based confection.) I’d say, do the Red Sox Cake (because I live in Boston now, I know "the fever") and maybe do some Tastykake fun too? Or add a Philly based idea to the fun? Boston/Philly love?

 Just a thought.
