10 Completely Creative Groom’s Cake Ideas

DFW Details

As wedding planners, we’ve seen our fair share of gorgeous bridal cakes. From sky-high tiers accented by crystals to buttercream bows that match the look of a gown, we love the creativity brides are known for incorporating into the sweetest part of the wedding day. Happily, the same now goes for groom’s cakes!

Whether it’s presented in sheet cake form or decked out in fondant, there’s no doubt that the traditional chocolate groom’s cake will never fail to be delicious. That being said, we love when couples choose to highlight the groom via a custom confection that reflects his personality and interests. Take a few cues from these DFW Events couples and don’t be afraid to have a little fun with the form and flavor of your groom’s cake. Last but not least, prepare for your dessert table to be one of the most Instagrammed aspects of your reception!
