A Sweet Surprise | Groom’s Cake Inspiration Board

By, August 13, 2013

Between the delicate florals, sparkling jewelry, and flowing gown, a wedding can be a very bride-centric day. Fortunately, there is a rediscovered wedding tradition that pays tribute to the man of the night – a groom’s cake!

The custom of a groom’s cake can be traced back to England’s Victorian Era. During a Victorian wedding, separate cakes were served for the wedding guests, bridesmaids, and groomsmen. The groom’s cake, typically a rich, dark fruitcake with no icing, was often boxed up for guests to take home at the end of the night. According to legend, a single woman who slept with a slice of groom’s cake under her pillow would dream about her future husband that night!

All fables aside, a groom’s cake remains a very fun and relevant tradition. These days, groom’s cakes are typically designed in a way to showcase the groom’s favorite hobbies or interests, and are available in every flavor imaginable. If it fits within the dessert budget, we think a groom’s cake is a sweet way to celebrate the man of honor!

Below are some favorite groom’s cakes we’ve captured at recent weddings. Sports cakes are a popular option, and we can’t stop talking about the SPAM cake! What’s the most creative or unusual groom’s cake you’ve seen?
