Groom's Cakes


A groom’s cake is, as it says, a cake for the groom. The tradition started with southern weddings, and is a fun thing to include in a wedding ceremony. The cake thought to be a gift from the bride to the groom; the bride is the one who orders and designs the cake. The cake’s design is supposed to be kept a surprise until it is served. Many cakes are often related to the groom’s hobbies or special interested. With his favorite cake flavor in mind.
Traditionally, the groom’s cake was given as gifts to unmarried female guests. The cake was given out in personalized boxes and many women kept the boxes under their pillows that night in the hopes they would dream of their future partners. We have a selection of grooms cake on our little cakes page. http://www.thecakecontessa.com/littlecakes.html. If you decide to order a groom's cake have fun with it!

This cake was skittles green, the flowers at the wedding were skittles orange,purple, and red. There are 3 different shapes a petal shape at the bottom, then it goes to a circular cake then a traditional round.
