Cold beer on a hot day…or on your wedding day?

Monday, July 1st, 2013

We meet great couples all the time in our line of work, and Rebecca and David were one couple that we especially loved.  The two were married at the beautiful Estancia Hotel in La Jolla, and their choices of wedding dessert was as unique as this special couple!

A little background: the couple met in Denver, Colorado, when CO-native, David, was out with friends (and friends of friends), of which Rebecca was part.   The connection was instantaneous, and fast forward years later, and CA-native, Rebecca, moved to Denver be with her man!

Fast forward another few years, and this couple gets married in a gorgeous day at the Estancia.  Since they were getting married in CA, Rebecca wanted to do something special for her groom to remind him of home.  For Coloradans, Coors Light is like Rocky Mountain water; a staple in a CO man’s diet!  For David, Coors Light is his drink of choice!  Rebecca wanted to ensure that her husband’s favorite drink was incorporated into their special day!  For Rebecca, having the Coors Light groom’s cake was a way to bring Colorado to California.

It took a lot of hard work, but the result was a groom’s cake so special and meaningful that we, too, felt like we were from Colorado!  The couple was thrilled with not only the Coors Light cake, but with all the desserts we prepared for their wedding. Couples like this make our job!


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!
