The groom’s cake is a southern tradition and as funky superstitious traditions go, single women at the wedding would take a piece of the groom’s cake home, put it under their pillows that night and expect to dream blissfully of the man they will soon marry… kinda cute.
Or, you could just use the tradition of the groom’s cake as an opportunity to honor your groom. Surprise him with a cake that is totally fun and totally about him! Since the groom’s cake should look nothing like the wedding cake, you have complete permission to be in stark contrast and have a blast designing a cake that highlights some fabulous aspect of his personality, hobby, profession, etc. The whole idea behind the groom’s cake is to honor him… here are a few great ideas from brides.com.
Two all beef pattys anyone?
