  • Chalkboard Cake

    Chalkboard Cake

    "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."

  • Bear Cake

    Bear Cake

    "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."

  • Cheese Wheel Cake

    Cheese Wheel 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!"

    Chicago Skyline Cake

    "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."

  • Fox Cake

    Fox Cake

    "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!'"

  • Boxing Cake

    Boxing Cake

    "Sweet and Saucy Shop created this cake for a groom who is a huge boxing fan. They made him a set of boxing gloves completely out of cake with his last name on them. He absolutely loved it!"

  • Beer Pong Cake

    Beer Pong Cake

    "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!"

  • Stormtrooper Cake

    Stormtrooper Cake

    "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!"

  • Mascot Cake

    Mascot Cake

    "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."

  • Oreo Cake

    Oreo Cake

    "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."

  • Spider-Man Cake

    Spider-Man Cake

    "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!"

  • Meat Smoker Cake

    Meat Smoker Cake

    "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."

  • Shoe Cake

    Shoe Cake

    "This amazing groom's cake from A Wish and a Whisk is a replica of the groom's favorite shoes. They even put it in a shoebox, and he had no idea that it was a cake!"

  • Day of the Dead Cake

    Day of the Dead Cake

    "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!"
