cake belonging to the groom
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…
…favorite sports team…
or even profession….
Any groom is sure to love these fabulous (and delicious cakes!)
