Weddings are traditionally geared and planned by the brides. We all know that. This is why wedding cakes usually tend to be more on the fluffy white or pink side. However, if you want to do something special for your new husband, why not go for a typically masculine cake instead?
The sad truth is that there are some couples out there who want to break the norm of having a typical wedding cake, but most of them are afraid or intimidated to take the plunge. This is the worst thing that you can do: Don’t forget that your wedding day is about you and only about you. So, if you want to toss a classic cake in favor of a groom’s cake, do it!
Don’t underestimate the importance of wedding toppers as well. The most popular groom’s cake are very often enhanced by humorous toppers that depict scenes such as the bride dragging the groom to the altar or flinging a lasso at him. Indeed, weddings are solemn ceremonies but there’s no reason why they should be boring as well. Never hesitate to indulge in some humor- even risque ones. Best of all, these toppers can very easily find a place of pride on your mantelpiece in many years to come.
Of course, beer cakes definitely find their place in the list of the most epic groom’s cake. In this case, the couple can either go for a can-shaped cake with the beer name written upon it, or, if you’re lucky enough to have an experimental baker, ask him to create a beer-based fondant which will wow your adult guests. The symbol of manliness by excellence, a chilled, robust beer can also be served alongside the wedding cake instead of the customary champagne.
If your man is an avid fan of photography, why not surprise him with a camera-shaped wedding cake instead? Similarly, motorcycle buffs will certainly find their joy in a rugged Harley Davidson cake. The most important thing is not to be afraid to experiment and push the boundaries until you create the one cake that’s bound to make your new groom smile- even if you have to go for the most outrageous cake designs.
After all, let’s not forget that brides ultimately have the final words in most wedding preparations- something which can make the groom feel a bit left out. A funny, albeit thoughtful groom’s cake is therefore bound to strum your man’s heartstrings while showing him how much he means to you.
