Chalkboard Cake -147886
"This unique chalkboard-inspired confection designed by Elizabeth Marek of Artisan Cake Company has just the right amount of masculinity and whimsy — it would be the perfect contrast to a traditional white wedding cake."
"How about a groom's cake that tickles those savory taste buds? A cheese wheel cake is a great option for foodie grooms. Work with your local deli or cheesemonger to select cheese wheels in a variety of colors, textures and flavors, and stack them together. Yum!"
"This groom had some serious school pride so Pretty Please Bakeshop created his school mascot, Bucky Badger of the University of Wisconsin, completely out of cake! They even put him in his signature stance."
"This groom was really into Star Wars, specifically the Stormtroopers, so Pretty Please Bakeshop created a one-of-a-kind cake for him. The wedding colors were black and white, so the helmet fit in perfectly!"
"How cool is this design by Elysia Root Cakes? It’s for the groom who was a party guy in college but then settled down with the love of his life. On the wedding night, surprise him with a cake that reminds him of his collegiate days with the guys, hanging out in the dorm rooms!"
"This groom's cake designed by Laura Jackson of The Flour Garden was good enough for some true 'royals.' The groom was from the UK, and one of his passions is fox hunting. The detail on the fox is extraordinary, complete with the proper hunt coat while popping out of the hedge behind a stone wall. We know what this fox said: 'I do!'"
"I can't believe this is a cake! A Wish and a Whisk made a hockey-playing cop bear for a groom nicknamed 'Bear.' His bride's nickname is 'squirrel,' so the baker added the cute little critter on his shoulder."
"I love this sentimental take on cake by Elysia Root Cakes. We like to think the couple saw each other every morning while waiting for the train at the same stop in Chicago...then they fell in love and got married."
"Served at my daughter’s 'local reception,' this sugar skull cake by Melanie Powell from Mad Lily Cakery blended the atmosphere of her destination wedding in Mexico with the groom's passion for music. Today, groom’s cakes are designed to bring in the personalities of the groom. We have come a long way from the traditional chocolate layers with strawberries on top!"
"Sometimes a simple snacking favorite can make for a swoon-worthy cake, like this creation by Lisa Ho. Top a cake-style stack of goodies — Oreos, Nutter Butters, the options are endless — with a glitter gold flag and you've got a dessert that'll make your groom and guests go wild."
"What could be more manly for a groom than a meat smoker cake? A Wish and a Whisk recreated a smoker complete with brisket smoking on the grate and used dry ice to make it look as if smoke was coming out of the lid."
"I love this cake by Pretty Please Bakeshop. The groom was an ophthalmologist and a Spider-Man fan, so the baker made him a cake of a bust of Spiderman wearing a lab coat and stethoscope. The eye chart read the bride and grooms' names and their wedding date. Too cute!"
