A groom’s cake is typically smaller than the couple’s wedding cake, one layer only, and is decorated to reflect a particular hobby or interest of the groom.For example, a hockey fan’s groom’s cake may be made in the shape and color of a hockey puck. The groom who enjoys shooting hoops could have a groom’s cake resembling a basketball. If the groom likes to strum a few tunes from time to time, then a guitar groom’s cake is perfect.
The history of a groom’s cake goes like this. The groom’s cake was not to be served to the guests while at the wedding reception, but rather it was to be sliced up, placed into packages and given to them as favors when they departed. Single women at the wedding would take their pieces of cake home and sleep with it under their pillows in hopes of dreaming of their future husbands.
