The Modern Day Groom’s Cake

Sunday, February 12th, 2012

The Groom’s cake is a tradition that dates as far back as the 17th century. Legend has it that a small piece of the cake was sent home with all unmarried females. It promised that if she slept with the cake under her pillow, she would dream of the man she was to marry. And although there are remnants of this old tradition that still exist, over the past few years the Groom’s Cake has been rediscovered and reinvented. No longer bound to a certain style or flavor, it is yet another opportunity to express your creativity.

The modern day Groom’s cake is often given to the groom as a surprise gift from his bride. Most requests these days are for SCULPTED CAKE DESIGNS, which offer endless options. They can vary in colors, fillings, frostings, flavors and style. The Groom’s Cake flavors should reflect those that the groom enjoys most and it’s style should represent his interests or hobbies. As always, we encourage you to be creative and to choose something that closely reflects his likes and interests. After all, you know your man BEST!

This idea of ingenuity and originality has inspired some of the most creative sessions in the Sweet Cheeks kitchen. From football helmets, to Patrón bottles and even a can of Spam, our photo gallery contains one of the most eclectic collections of Groom’s Cakes around.

We encourage clients to show off the groom’s style by presenting the Groom’s Cake on REHEARSAL DINNER night, when the focus can be on him, since Wedding Day is so often the full planning & taste of the bride.

Here are a few of our favorites!
