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 weddings we create. Now whether this number is skewed as we have the skill to carry out fun groom's cakes or not is a good question...? According to Wikipedia,      "a groom's cake is a wedding tradition originating in Victorian England,[1] but observed more often in the modern age in the American South. While a wedding cake may often be decorated in white and light in texture or color, the groom's cake can take a variety [...]

It’s a Nice Day for White Wedding Cake!

A White Wedding Cake is not only one of the most traditional wedding cakes, it was also a top song in 1982 by Billy Idol. The lyrics are open to interpretation, but to me, they mean starting live anew with your hero: Hey little sister, what have you done? Hey little sister, who's the only one? Hey little sister, who's your Superman? Hey little sister, who's the one you want? Hey little sister, shotgun If you and you're "soon-to-be" spouse have a special song... let us work it into your wedding cake! Call us to order a cake that will sing to your heart!

Less expensive option to ombré ruffle wedding cake

Our brides have been bringing us gorgeous photos of fondant ombre ruffle wedding cakes recently, and are disheartened to learn that this wedding cake costs significantly more than they thought due to the hours involved. So, we came up with two more offers to help easy the pain of the added expense. The first is to make several colors of buttercream and ombré them up the cake while ruffling the buttercream. The second, and least expensive, is to do the ruffle in white buttercream and airbrush the ombré on the buttercream of the wedding cake. Both are lovely and beautiful substitutions to the traditional fondant ombré ruffle wedding cake.

What is a groom’s cake for?

Everything from the wedding colors to the suit the groom is wearing is a reflection of the bride. Groom's cakes are a small bit of the wedding that celebrates the groom and his interests. It can sit next to the bridal cake at the reception, or it can be the dessert at the rehearsal dinner.
