Groom’s Cake

 

Once a rarity at weddings, groom’s cakes have gained such popularity that now, it’s rare to go to a wedding that doesn’t feature this alternative to the main wedding cake. The tradition of groom’s cakes in the United States has its roots in the South. Normally, a groom’s cake is a gift from bride to groom, and acts as a foil to the often feminine, traditional wedding cake. Normally, groom’s cakes do not feature anything flowery or feminine, and often take the shape of something with significance to the groom – a mascot for a favorite sports team, a college logo, a favorite hobby or beverage. Likewise, the flavors of the groom’s cake will typically contrast with the wedding cake, and will often be something “dark,” such as chocolate or a liquor-soaked cake of some sort. Another popular option for a groom’s cake is a cheesecake, which typically does not lend itself well to being stacked in multiple tiers (although it can – and is – done.) Groom’s cakes are usually served on a separate table from the wedding cake, and may sometimes even be served at the rehearsal dinner the night before. Want to represent your groom in some meaningful and whimsical way to your wedding guests? A groom’s cake may be just the thing.

Let Them Eat Cheese!

Confession time – I love cheese. If given the chance I’d probably eat cheese at every meal of the day and twice on Sunday.

Cheese is awesome.

And if you love cheese just as much I think you’re gonna love today’s featured wedding cake because it is four tiers of CHEESE. Read More

Elegant Gray Wedding Cake

When you think about the perfect color scheme for a wedding cake, does gray often pop into your mind? No?

Well, it probably should.

I’m not talking about boring, dreary gray like the skies during a springtime rainstorm.

Nope. I’m talking about light gray accented with other colors including white and pink. Read More

Three-tier Chocolate Wedding Cake

I loooove the idea of serving a chocolate cake at a wedding reception.

It’s becoming THE thing to do – get away from the traditional white wedding cake and serve something a bit different.

Today’s featured cake would be gorgeous any time of year, but I’d love to see it in the early spring when the temperatures are still a bit chilly. Read More

Naked Chocolate Wedding Cake for Fall

I have been craving chocolate lately.

I blame the displays of Halloween candy in the stores and the fact that I’m trying to avoid sweets.

So, to curb my cravings I’ve been looking at chocolate wedding cakes. And today’s featured cake looks delicious!

This naked chocolate cake is the perfect “undressed” cake for a fall wedding thanks to the espresso frosting and the fresh berries and figs that adorn the cake. Read More

Carnival Wedding Cake

If there’s one thing I really love to see when it comes to wedding cakes it’s a cake that doesn’t take itself too seriously.

After all, your wedding day should be filled with fun and smiles so why not add a touch of whimsy to the cake table?

Take today’s cake as a perfect example – it has a fun carnival theme and a super cute cake topper to boot! Read More

Naked Chocolate Wedding Cake

I have a confession to make – I love Oreo cookies.

Which is probably why I had to choose today’s wedding cake to showcase. It looks like a stack of Oreos. OK, well it looks like a stack of Oreos to me.

I’ll also confess that I’m not a huge fan of naked wedding cakes. I’m too much of a frosting fan to purposely eat a cake that lacks frosting.

However, this naked dark chocolate cake is really stunning because of its lack of frosting. The white icing peeking out between the tiers adds just the right amount of drama to this cake. Read More

Sometimes when looking for wedding cakes to showcase I run across a cake that makes me go “hmmm” and “wow!” at the same time.
