Grooms Cake Ideas

The grooms cake is making a comeback. Have fun with creative and sometimes crazy cake designs.

Originating in the south, the man's version of the wedding cake was intended as a gift from the bride.

The design is usually a reflection of the husband to be's hobby or interests. The flavor is traditionally chocolate. But really anything goes for this fun addition to a reception like this dog cake below.

Great Chocolate Covered Strawberry Idea

Incorporating chocolate covered strawberries with a chocolate cake is always a great idea. This one has a cascade of the yummy morsels. At Mark and Gini's wedding(above)they fed each one of the guests personally to the tune of "I Feel Good" by James Brown. Nice touch Mark and Gini :-)

A Chocolate Mountain Or A Realistic Fish

The mountain climbing theme design was a really fun one to do. The groom fashioned the entire wedding party from tiny photos and they are actually climbing up the cake. The groom is climbing to the bride who is waiting on the top tier. The water is a clear piping gel colored blue. The little trees are actually real small pieces of greenery.
