A Southern tradition, the groom's cake is typically chocolate—some might say devil's food!
Having a beautiful groom's cake at your reception is an opportunity to spotlight the groom on a day which usually centers around the bride.
Slices of the groom's cake can be boxed as a memento of the wedding for departing guests. Legend says if a young maiden sleeps with a slice under her pillow, she'll dream of the man she will marry.
Update tradition and feature the groom's cake as dessert at the rehearsal dinner. Or use it as the centerpiece of a reception table reflecting the groom's hobby or interest.
It's also a great way to treat your guests to a different flavor or type of cake in addition to your wedding cake.
