What’s a groom’s cake anyway?

To Groom's Cake, Or Not To Groom's Cake? So many of our couples come in and ask if they need a groom's cake, and what is it, and do they really need it?? So much of a wedding is traditional, and done just because that is "how it has always been." But traditions vary from region to region and change over time. We've found that here in Denver Groom's Cakes are fun and done in about 10% of the [...]

The Makery did a beautiful job on our wedding cake. It turned out just as we imagined and asked for! It was sooooo gorgeous!

All of our guests raved about how good the cake was, we just wished we could have had more than just when my husband and I cut it and fed each other that little bite… You see, while my husband and I were too busy dancing, our guests ate it ALL up before we even had a chance! I suppose you’d consider this a good thing!!! Just not for my husband and I (and we even ordered way more cake vs guest ratio). Luckily, The Makery provides you with a “sweetheart cake” (at no additional cost) to take home after the wedding so you can enjoy it all to yourself! Maybe that’s why they provide you with this “sweetheart cake” perhaps wedding guests eating their cake completely up is a recurring incident. Regardless, my husband and I will also be enjoying an “anniversary cake” (also at no additional cost) for our first wedding anniversary. So we can’t wait to indulge in that without having to share with everyone else… ha! We might just have to make this an anniversary tradition and purchase a little cake for ourselves every year, it’s that good!

I would recommend The Makery to everyone, we tried cake elsewhere and they weren’t nearly as good. I also thought The Makery was affordable and added bonus: they gave us a discount since they were a preferred vendor with our venue!
