Groomsmen Gifts

Groom’s Cake

“You don't love someone for their looks, or their clothes, or for their fancy car, but because they sing a song only you can hear.”
Groom’s Cake
  1. Who:
    It’s been a recent tradition for this to be a surprise gift from the bride to the groom.
  2. Why:
    Originally, this cake was meant for single women at the wedding. They would take a packaged slice home as a wedding favor, and sleep with it under their pillow that night in order to dream about their future groom. Today, this cake has become a way to honor the groom. It’s meant to be a fun way to represent your personality, style and/or passions.
  3. What:
    A small cake that’s traditionally dark in color (a contrast to the white wedding cake). Common flavors are: chocolate, red velvet and carrot, but the flavor can be whatever you like best. Also, if you’re more into pies, brownies or cupcakes, go for it! Below are some popular design categories:
