Grooms Wedding Cakes

Grooms wedding cakes are very popular in the United States, specifically in the southeastern America. Grooms cake tradition started during the Victorian era, wherein the first cake was a dense and heavy fruit cake. The tradition requires the groom to cut a small piece, and then placed the piece into a small box to be given to the unmarried guests. The cake according to old age custom must be put under the pillow so the unmarried woman can find a husband.

The grooms’ cake after many years became a flour cake, either a chocolate or white cake, and during the mid century, the cake is placed at the top of the bride cake. By the way, grooms cake did not originate in the United States but in England since it is a British tradition that has been simply forgotten.

Today, grooms cakes no longer given to unmarried women, but part of the wedding celebration either at the rehearsal dinner or at the reception. Furthermore, the groom cakes take a lot of shape as a football, helmet or whatever the man wants.
