Grooms, let's be honest – your personal style isn't always prioritized during the wedding planning. Although you may ultimately love the décor and design that your bride chooses, it's likely that your preferences took a bit of a backseat. That's why we love the idea of a groom's cake! As an accompaniment to the more formal wedding cake, the groom's cake is free to represent you and anything that makes you happy. This is the one element of the wedding that is just for the groom!

When it comes to groom's cake design, the sky is truly the limit. Many cakes don't even resemble a traditional cake, but rather sports stadiums, pets, hobbies, and cars. While many grooms take an active role in designing their cake, others are surprised at the wedding by their brides, who worked with their cake designer on the sly to create the impressive confection. Check out the cakes real grooms served at their weddings below! They're more like works of art than cakes!
