Surprise Your Hubby-to-Be with a Groom’s Cake He’ll Never Forget!
There’s so much to think about when planning a wedding. From the venue, the decorations, and the food to the entertainment, and the wedding favors. Every single element contributes to making your vision come true. One fun tradition that’s worthy of being included in your wedding plans is the groom’s cake.
Typically, there is more than enough cake to go around at a wedding; however, there’s usually a more feminine approach to the design of a wedding cake. The groom’s cake is all about him. It is a great way to surprise the groom and celebrate his unique personality.
Although the groom’s cake is not traditionally cut up and served to the wedding guests, legend has it that if you split it among the single guests at the wedding and they sleep with it under their pillow, their future partner will come to them in dreams. They could also wake up with frosting in their hair. The accuracy of that tale will have to be put to the test.
For now, here are some tips for you to choose the perfect groom’s cake for your loved one:
Define Your Budget
A lot of what you will be able to do with the cake will depend on your budget, so it should be the first thing on your mind when you decide to invest in a groom’s cake.
Think of His Favorite Flavors
The flavors of a wedding cake tend to be more subtle since they are meant to please a crowd. Since the groom’s cake is all about what your groom loves, your choice of flavor is your chance to let him indulge. What are his favorite flavor combos? There are no rules here as long as it’s something he will truly love.
Take Time to Think of a Theme
His personality quirks, hobbies, and other things he enjoys are excellent sources of inspiration for the theme of the cake. It doesn’t have to be serious at all. You can take this opportunity to have a little fun and do something unexpected. Of course, the final approach will depend a lot on his personality. But, the fact that you take the time to put some thought into those details sends out a powerful message. Be sure to schedule an appointment with your cake artist in advance to ensure you have plenty of time to get it done just the way you want it.
Grooms tend to give in to the wishes of their bride for the wedding since all they want is for her to be happy on the big day. A groom’s cake is a beautiful, fun way for the bride to make the groom feel special, but the cake is just an idea. If your groom has a sweet tooth, you could go all out and create a dessert table with his favorite treats. Make it personal, and it will be perfect!
