There is a lovely wedding tradition that you shouldn’t miss, that being the tradition of the groom’s cake. In case you didn’t know this ritual is dating back to the Victorian era and it is associated with the American South. Also it could be served at the wedding reception, but as a different dessert from the wedding cake, or if you want you may have it as the desert of your rehearsal dinner.

The great thing about these cakes is that they may come in various shapes, forms and tastes. They may incorporate chocolate, fruits or sometimes they could even be replaced by some cheesecakes.
Therefore, it won’t be hard to choose the groom’s cake, as the wedding suppliers can provide you every shape you like. If the groom is a baseball fan, then it is obvious that his cake will take the shape of a baseball bat, helmet or even mitt. On the other hand, if the groom works for a prestigious company, as an important clerk, then his cake could be a leather suitcase. The fact is that everything is allowed when choosing the groom’s cake, which can take even the shape of his favourite pet.
However, if you can not decide what to pick as his cake, then a chocolate basket full of chocolate strawberries would be a fantastic choice. It will look tasty, it will be delicious and it will definitely be appropriate for this event, because it won’t be something grand and luxurious like the wedding cake, but a delicious dessert that everyone will be pleased to eat.
An important detail which one should take care when picking the groom’s cake is the flavour. And since this cake belongs to the groom, then it should definitely contain his favourite essence and taste. However, you should pick something delicious, but no too sickening, so that everyone will appreciate it.
All you have to do next is to decide when to serve it. Like we have mentioned above, one may have it both at the wedding reception and at the rehearsal dinner, but we believe that the latter option would be best, because usually these cakes are of a small size and therefore it must be enough for everybody.
So, decide what shape, flavour and form would be best for this delicious dish and then surprise your groom with a fabulous choice.
