If you’re unfamiliar with the groom’s cake, let us introduce you. The groom’s cake is a cake given by the bride to the groom and is typically chocolate with liquor or fruit, intending to encapsulate all that is “masculine.” The tradition originated in England during the Victorian-era and eventually made its way west to America. Today the groom’s cake persists as a particularly southern tradition. Presented alongside the bride’s cake, it is a nice nod to the groom on what is, in fact, also his special day. It may be served at the rehearsal dinner or at the reception as an alternative choice for guests who dislike the standard vanilla flavor of the wedding cake. The current trend is for the groom’s cake to reflect the groom’s hobbies or interests. Check out some of these examples we found of groom’s cakes below!
