The Groom’s Cake

The groom’s cake is a gift that is given by the bride, the bride’s parents, or his own parents. The cake is not meant to be as elaborate as the wedding cake and is often cooked by a family member. The cake is intended to be for the groom and any unmarried ladies that attend the reception. There is an old myth that the groom’s cake should be cut into small pieces. They should then be wrapped in a napkin and given to all the single ladies. The night of the ladies place the cake under their pillow it is said that whoever she dreams of that night, she will marry. The groom’s cake is usually decorated with hobbies or sports that the groom loves. Whether it is a simple cake or very elaborate it is sure to be something your groom will love!
