Groom’s Cake

The history behind the grooms cake goes back to Victorian England- where a second cake (the groom’s cake) was served to the groomsmen and bridesmaids. Eventually making it’s way to the states, the groom’s cake was a big hit in the South, and continues to be today- and has now become mainstream in the sense that couples all over the U.S. are considering groom’s cake. A groom’s cake is a fun way to pay homage to the groom on wedding day, when so much attention seems focused on the bride. I love when it’s a surprise!

It’s also a fun, lighter note- where sometimes the most personal is not the cake that ties into the perfect wedding color palette and design schematic, but one that reflects the groom’s hobbies…
