Having a grooms cake is a tradition that has come and gone and is back bigger than ever! This special cake for the groom is thought to have started in the South. It began as a second cake presented at the reception, with a heavier recipe and sometimes soaked with liquor.
Legend says that unmarried girls would take a piece home and sleep with it under their pillows to help them dream of the man they would marry.
Well, times have changed. The best part of this tradition is that the groom has something special for him. There are so many options today.
Probably the best way to save money here is to either get help making the cake or get a local baker to cut you a deal for both cakes. Any way you “slice” it, groom cakes are a cool way to make the groom feel special.
