~Back and Better Than Ever: The Groom's Cake~

The Groom's Cake
It has slowly been creeping back into weddings up here in the Northwest, woo hoo!

The groom's cake started in the Southern U.S. . . .
as a gift from the bride to the groom to showcase his interests/hobbies.

The groom's cake tradition:
"The history of a groom's cake goes like this. The groom's cake was not to be served to the guests while at the wedding reception, but rather it was to be sliced up, placed into packages and given to them as favors when they departed. Single women at the wedding would take their pieces of cake home and sleep with it under their pillows in hopes of dreaming of their future husbands."

The reason I love these cakes is that it is just one more way to showcase your personal and creative side in your wedding.
It's all in the fun details!!!

Also, a great way to include your groom into your wedding (he he sometimes they get no say . . . here's a way to tribute to them!

I love when bride's surprise their groom with a fun, quirky cake.

My last bride had a DVD shaped cake made for her hubby of his favorite show:
"White Collar"
The look on his face was priceless when we showed him this!

Some other great groom's cakes I'm loving:
For those Apple and MAC fanatics

For the XBox obsessed men

Beer lovers

For those guys who are always on their I-Phone

Legos! Maybe he loved playing with these as a boy?

For the Louis Vuitton fans out there

Now really who doesn't love Oreos?!

If you are married, did you get a groom's cake for your hubby?

If you are planning your wedding, are you getting your fiance one made?

I so wish I did this! 
I would make my hubby a globe cake as he LOVES to travel the world and plan trips.  
a British Airways 747-400 . . . he loves his planes.
