BunnyBlue, I agree with you totally! I told Fiance that I was going to get him that cake. LOL. I don’t think he liked that idea too much. LOL

I gotta admit…I love the cake from "Steel magnolias"…the famous bleeding armadilla cake!

Is this a regional thing?  I’d never heard of it until we started planning a wedding and have never seen one at an actual event.

Ejs- What is it with guys and zombies?  My fiance is obsessed, and I really don’t understand it.  He just finished reading World War Z, and he couldn’t stop talking about it!

Like minneapolitan, I have never seen a groom’s cake at a wedding. I have only heard of it from watching the Food Network shows (Ace of Cakes, etc.). Unfortunately, I didn’t work it into the budget to have a groom’s cake but if I did it would have been the Superman emblem. Superman was my FI’s favorite super hero growing up. Him and his Mom reminisce about the time when he had a SM PJ that actually had a cape. I wish they had the pictures because it would have been soooo cute to see.

I’m thinking that groom’s cakes might be a southern thing. I’m from Oklahoma and have never been to a wedding without one. In fact it was built into the package that my cake baker had… a wedding cake and a groom’s cake all for one price.

I definitely want to have a groom’s cake, because although our wedding is up north where I’m from, worcestergroom is southern. I haven’t decided yet, but I was thinking about:

-The crest of our undergrad school

-A monopoly board

But then I found this link, which has a bunch of really helpful grooms cake ideas: http://www.weddingbycolor.com/cincybride09/milestones/31662

Now I’m thinking bacon. I don’t know why I didn’t think of it before… the guy just loves bacon. He has a bacon action figure. His favorite cocktail is made with bacon-infused bourbon, his favorite sandwich is peanut butter and bacon. He will order anything from any restaurant if it has bacon in it. The big decision: do I have the baker incorporate actual bacon into the cake? He would like it, I think… one of his favorite breakfast foods is bacon-waffles, and I imagine it similar to that. It could be a maple-flavored cake with little bacon crumblies baked in. But I think it might be too weird for the other guests.

I want to get my Fiance the goorms cake as his gift from me (is that tacky?) I thought it would be a great suprise since anytime we watch any wedding type show and a guy ends up getting a goorms cake he has always said something like "thats sooo coool" or something like that. I dont think he would ever expect it so.
I am either going to have it at the rehersal dinner, or the wedding itself beside out cake, havent decided yet.

He is a big golfer so here were some of the ideas I had;

golf green

golf balls and greens obviously not with the numbers on the golf ball cupcakes (as they’re birthday cupcakes)

braveheart groomMy groom is in a kilt and they make the characters on the cake look like us

I don’t have any photos yet, but my fiance plays Go competitively, so his grooms cake will be a Go board with little gumpaste stones.  Let me tell you, we got some blank stares from several bakers when we were looking for someone to make it!

 

I *tried* to convince him to get a red velvet armadillo, I even made him watch Steel Magnolias like 4 times, but he wouldn’t have any of it.

I’m thinking a canoe…  but I really love the Armadillo from Steel Magnolias!!!  And he loves red velvet, so… maybe I will do it!  LoL… anyways…  but for those who are asking… Groom’s Cake is definitely a southern tradition!!

I’m doing the Bacon Cake. It is actually mocha with espresso chocolate and fondant topping, but it LOOKS like bacon, and it will be awesome. And I’m from NJ (FH is from DE), so the Groom’s Cake is not traditional, but too fun to pass up. Shhh…it’s a surprise.

Disregard the kittens, this is a sample I found online. Not a clue what the kittens are about…
