It was def the hit of our wedding...

            Okay... can someone explain to me what the significance/reasoning for a groom's cake?

            I'm completely clueless... sorry. I don't want to miss out on something I should be doing!

            Thanks in advance for clarifying!

              No worries Erica! A groom's cake is a southern tradition with it being a present from the bride to the groom. Traditionally since the bride's cake was white, the groom's cake is chocolate. I grew up in Texas and can't remember a wedding that did not have a groom's cake. Most of them have an Ace of Cakes type feel with college or hobby themes. We aren't doing one at our DW.

                Ah... okay I get it! Well, being from Michigan, I"ve never seen one of these cakes at any weddings I've attended. So, no wonder why! :-)

                I think we'll just skip it because my FI had no idea what this was either!

                Thanks for clarifying!

                  I'm from Texas, as well, but since we're only having a group of 13 and a wedding cake that feeds 25 (just because we want a 2-tier so it looks like a wedding cake), I've decided to have the "Groom's" cake delivered to the restaurant where we're having our Welcome dinner, the night before the wedding. However, it's FI's birthday, so I'm making it a suprise b-day cake instead. It will be chocolate (because he is a chocoholic).

                    FI wants something like this (he is about to get his BSN degree, then will take the NCLEX in January to become a Registered Nurse.

                    I LOVE this though, I guess it's tacky and southern, but it doesn't get much worse than a butt!
