I’m only getting a small cake for my groom, his favorite kind. Guests can eat the main cake.

I got a smaller cake for the groom’s cake and it didn’t even end up getting cut.  We now have a whole cake in the shape of a computer sitting in our fridge.  Trust me, you do not want a lot of extra cake.  Go small.

You could get a smaller cake to serve at your rehearsal dinner – that’s what I’m going to do!  Otherwise it’s not rude at all to just get a smaller one for the reception.

I don’t think it is expected for the Groom’s Cake to be able to feed all your guests a second slice. Most will be pretty full after the appetizers/meal/cake. The groom’s cake is mainly for decoration. When wedding cakes were mostly white cakes, groom’s cake were often chocolate to offer an alternative to the wedding cake. Some people will take two slices of course, but I think you’ll be fine with a tiny one!

I am doing my Grooms Cake at our rehearsal dinner so it actually is EATEN! I don’t want anything coming home with me aside from our top tier of wedding cake! 🙂 I had mine made to feed 30 people. Everyone expects to eat the wedding cake, not the grooms cake. Go small!

My baker actually is letting us use the sheet cake that would be used to supplement the actual wedding cake to make the grooms cake. So it will all be cut and eaten. No cake at the rehearsal dinner… I want something else.
