Amazing Grooms Cakes

When it comes to wedding cakes, the grooms are getting in on the action and ordering their own cakes to enjoy at the wedding. And some of these grooms cakes are putting the traditional wedding cake to shame!

Grooms cakes are typically inspired by the groom's interests. Whether they are obsessed with a particular sports team, were in the Armed Forces, are a proud alumni of their university or just love to drink a ice cold glass of beer, these interests are shaping what their cakes will look like.

I actually am a little jealous of the guys. They get to order a grandiose cake that captures their personality at the wedding and we ladies are stuck with the simple and predictable wedding cake. Not fair! 

Check out these grooms cakes for a little sugar envy or for inspiration on your own grooms cake. 

  • For the Beer Lover

This cake depicts crushed ice with 3 bottles of Miller Lite sitting on top with the base surrounded by chocolate covered strawberries. Guests will definitely be saying "Cheers!" to this cake.

  • There's Nothing Raw About This Sushi Cake

    Most people don't think of sushi when they are considering a cake design. But if you happen to love sushi (or any type of food), consider turning it into a grooms cake. Cakes posing as foods is a huge trend in cakes so it's no surprise a lot of grooms are opting for a food inspired cake.
