grooms cake – something different

A Groom’s cake has it’s roots in the South (USA), and although it used to be viewed as as added expense it is again gaining popularity.  The groom’s cake once neglected, has been making a huge come back. intended to be a gift from the bride to the groom, the groom’s cake is usually dark (often chocolate or liquor-soaked) and designed with a nod toward what’s traditionally considered “masculine” (i.e. no rosettes in sight).

A groom’s cake can serve many purposes, from dessert at the rehearsal dinner to an alternative choice to the bride’s cake at the wedding. It’s customary for the groom’s cake to be displayed next to the bride’s cake and later cut and put into boxes for guests to take home. And believe it or not, legend has it that single women are supposed to sleep with a slice under their pillow the same night they receive it — and if they do, they’ll dream of their future husband. Boxed slices of groom’s cake can also serve as your   wedding favours. If you go this route, take advantage of the opportunity to get creative with the packaging — an additional way to reflect your bridal style.

A current creative trend in groom’s cake is to have the cake reflect the groom’s interests and hobbies. Whatever you decide, gifting your new husband with his own cake is something you should do because you want to — not because you feel obligated. Visit us in Nelspruit, we will love to hear your ideas.
