I’m surprising my Fiance with a cake. One of his groomsmen’s girlfriend is a friend of mine and she makes amazing cakes so she and I are going to hang out one day prior to the wedding and I’m going to help her make the groom’s cake. I have no idea just what it’ll be yet, but I still have time to figure that out. It’s going to be geeky, though. 🙂

His two favorite things in the word are the Mets and Disney.  So I combined the two and surprised him with this:

I did it at the wedding.  I wanted him to feel like his personality was infused into the event.  Plus, I wanted everyone to see it!

A woman I work with is starting a cake business, so she made it for me.  Bakeries I asked said they would do it for $500.  The woman I work with asked for $140.  I gave her $250 because it was still a bargain and she is starting a business and I didn’t want to take advantage of her generosity.

I bet that a firetruck would be expensive since it has so many details.  But why don’t you pick something a little simpler, with fewer details.  Like a boot?  Or a helmet?  I bet that would look really cool.  And probably be more original!

i’m not, just because we’re already having cupcakes for guests and a gluten free cake for us, and we have such a small budget, it would be silly to have another dessert. i do think they’re fun though, if we were having a bigger wedding with a bigger budget i’d be all for it.

I am 100 percent Southern and it’s a tradition down here to have a grooms’ cake!  And yes, we’ll 100 percent have one!

I am surprising mine with a Red Sox groom’s cake at the rehearsal dinner.  I bought what looks like a base with the Red Sox logo and 4 little bobble head guys to put on a chocolate cake with a dark chocolate mousse filling.

We are having a small wedding, so a wedding cake and grooms cake on the wedding day would be way too much!

We didn’t even cut the groom’s cake at the reception.  It just sat there.  It wasn’t really about eating or serving it.  It was more just a decoration.

But we really enjoyed it the next day!
