Everyone is familiar with the traditional wedding cake and almost all couples have a sumptuous creation. Another dessert that you might want to include is the groom’s cake. The groom’s cake is a great addition to the wedding dessert selection and one that will surely delight your groom.
A groom’s cake is typically a surprise for him from his bride. The flavor is most-often chocolate and the range of designs is endless.
Designs for the groom’s cake seem to fall in to three groups. One is to have a rich, chocolate cake in a traditional shape with accents of chocolate-dipped strawberries. Another is for the cake to be decorated suggestive of a tuxedo. If you don’t want to go with the complexity of a custom design, the chocolate cake or tuxedo cake is a good way to go.
If you have access to a creative baker, you can work with him/her to design a cake with a fun theme that reflects the groom’s hobby or special interest. Even though the wedding cake tends to follow tradition, anything goes when it comes to the groom’s cake!
Choosing a groom’s cake that reflects the groom’s favorite hobby is a perfect way to include his hobby without making it part of the overall wedding décor. For example, sometimes a groom will want to have a hunting theme or race car theme but in most cases these types of themes don’t work well for a wedding and reception. Having a special groom’s cake that goes all out to showcase his theme may be the answer.
Your groom will likely be thrilled to have a cake made with him in mind and will surely appreciate your thoughtfulness.
Chocolate and strawberries are a popular combination for the groom’s cake.
A cake that is reminiscent of a tuxedo is also a popular design.
For a design that will surely “wow” your groom, choose to replicate his hobby, college team, sports team, or any other of his favorite things!
And if you want to incorporte the groom’s cake with the wedding cake, you can go with something entirely unique like this cake!
