The Groom's Cake

We all remember the famous groom’s cake from Steel Magnolias, the armadillo red velvet cake, the best groom’s cake ever!! Most brides wouldn’t choose the armadillo but if that’s what your groom is into why not?!

Do you know why there is a groom’s cake? Well after some research, I now know why so I thought I’d share it with you. The groom's cake is a smaller cake that is served at the wedding reception. Young unmarried women are supposed to take a piece of the groom's cake home to place under their pillows and the old wives tale says they will marry whomever they dream of that night. It’s like believing in Santa Clause but it is cute story to tell. I think it would be a unique idea to give all your single friends a piece of the cake with a note attached about the groom's cake tradtion. On the other hand, I wouldn't want to insult anyone so before you go with that idea, think about what it may come across to your friends. The groom’s cake is a southern tradition but it’s rather popular amongst us all. It’s also making a big come back. The groom’s cake should reflect the groom’s personality. Here are some groom’s cakes that clearly had the groom in mind.
