Adding a groom’s cake to the menu is an old but still favorite tradition that started in Britain to offer the guests a second flavor option for cake. Today’s groom’s cake can be the ultimate sweet gift for your groom. This cake, designed as unique as your wedding decor, represents the groom’s taste, style, and of course, the flavor of the cake. Read on to find out all the details of a groom’s cake.
All the Details for Your Groom’s Cake
Some insight from extraordinary local baker Karin Sassarman, designer and owner of The Sassy Baker, who makes wedding and groom’s cakes. The groom’s cake she has made is called a “Kransekake.” It’s a Scandinavian “celebration” cake. This cake is gluten-free, made with egg, white, almond flour, and powdered sugar. The Kransekake is also a traditional wedding cake. She added an important tip, “Year-old wedding cake, even if wrapped and frozen carefully, is typically only good for six months.” So eat that cake by your half-year anniversary.
• Design & Inspiration
The Bride makes most of the decisions here, especially if the cake is a secret surprise for the groom. If it’s not a surprise polling, his friends and workmates may give helpful ideas for the design. In addition to designing the cake, the table decor for the groom’s cake and sources will need to be chosen. Go to Pinterest and search grooms cake ideas, unique funny for a vast amount of pictures and references; here’s the link Pinterest.
• Where to Order a Groom’s Cake?
A groom’s cake is available from local bakers, your caterer, indie bakers, or have a family member or friend make it. Search your favorite search engine for bakers near your venue site. Cakes are made to travel, so let your baker know when you order that the cake needs to be packed securely for delivery. Ask if delivery is available to your venue and the cost for this service. Some bakers will bake a groom’s cake but may not have wedding cakes available because that requires different supplies, decorating materials, etc.
• When Do You Serve the Groom’s Cake
So many choices here, and they all are correct etiquette. Since the Bride usually presents the cake as a present from her to her new spouse, the decision is hers. One of the most popular is to cut the groom’s cake after you cut your wedding cake, saving some for your new spouse to enjoy later. If there’s no wedding cake, the groom’s cake can become dessert for you and your spouse later in the evening or at another time.
So, will your wedding menu include a groom’s cake? If yes, I hope this post has given you everything you need to have an epic groom’s cake. Your groom will be forever grateful. And that’s the best way to start your marriage.
