The “grooms cake” makes for another dessert option, like usually it is a different flavor than the wedding cake. Of course you can do a cookie cake! If would be really fun if it’s made out of the groom’s favorite cookies. (It really should reflect the groom in some way)

Good luck!

We had about a 6 inch grooms cake, it can be as little or as big as you want it to be.  It should reflect the groom’s personality. For example my DH’s was his name and had a golf cart on it cause he is a huge golf nut

We actually had our groom’s cake at our rehearsal dinner, so it only needed to serve ~40 people.

For your wedding, a cookie cake sound delicious along with your other desserts.

We had the grooms cake at our rehearsal dinner.  It was in the shape of a Ferrari and was amazing!  It should definitely reflect the groom’s interest if you’re going to do one.

The groom’s cake can be as big or small as you want it. It can be a cookie, cake, or whatever the groom wants it to be. My Darling Husband actually had 5 small groom’s cakes that all represented his hobbies. Anyone and everyone eats the groom’s cake. It depends on your guests as to which flavor of cake they want to eat. I would only suggest that the groom’s cake be a different flavor than the wedding cake, so people have a choice.

I don’t think that I’ve ever been to a wedding and was *aware* that there was a grooms cake! (either I’ve never been to weddings that had them, or there is not a big deal made about them, or I am not very observant!) 🙂

It is supposed to reflect the groom and cookies are yummy so go for it! FI’s is being made by a friend and it will be an Xbox360 controller. Anyone want to guess what he does in his spare time? lol

Why would you pay for an extra cake when you don’t even want to pay for food? Honestly not trying to be mean at all. I just thought you were doing like only a candy bar or something.

We’re having a small one.  I think it tends to be more of a tradition/novelty item at most weddings.  Ours will feed about 25.
