The History of The Grooms Cake

August 2, 2009 by Leave a Comment

Recently I have been dealing with alot of brides and grooms from the north who are coming to Nashville to get married.  Often times I bring up the idea of the groom’s cake as a way to throw in a small part of the south!  Often they look and me and say what’s a grooms cake???  So I thought I would take a moment and trace a few of the articles in how a grooms cake came to be!

According to www.hudsonvalleyweddings.com – The Groom’s Cake is a tradition that was prevalent in early American ceremonies, but seems to have fallen from favor in most contemporary weddings. The groom’s cake was usually dark (e.g., chocolate) to contrast with the bride’s cake. The groom’s cake appeared at the reception along with the wedding cake. The origin of this tradition is unclear. Some believe it was to be served by the groom, with a glass of wine, to the bridesmaids. Others believe it was to be saved and subsequently shared with friends after the honeymoon. The tradition seems to have survived primarily in the South..

According to www.usabride.com – The groom’s cake is suppose to be a gift from the bride to the groom. In ancient times, it was believed that if a single woman put a piece of the groom’s cake under her pillow, she would dream that night of the man she would marry.

This cake is usually dark, liquor-soaked, CHOCOLATE, or deep chocolate fudge. The cake would be displayed next to the wedding cake and later cut up and put in small white boxes for the guests to bring home.

But this post would not be complete without some AWESOME grooms cakes done here in Nashville! So here they are and many thanks to  Cakes by Shara for sharing her fabulous creations with us!
