Groom cakes are a tradition that started in the South in the United States. According to a legend, there was a superstition that if a single woman who attended a wedding took home a slice of the groom's cake and slept with it under her pillow that night, she would dream of the man that she will marry while asleep and she'd know by morning who she would be spending the rest of her life with. Nowadays, the groom's cake serves a purpose of honoring the groom, where the traditional white tiered wedding cake honors the bride. Many times this cake is a different, smaller chocolate cake that can be shaped and styled to represent some part of the groom's personality, and for this reason, you have a huge allowance to be as creative as you want.

Grooms cakes can be a big hit at weddings, rehearsal dinners, or bachelor parties. They usually have a pretty manly theme. These are not pictures of cakes that I did personally, but ones I received in an email from someone I know that I thought were unique enough that they should be shared.

Regardless of whether or not the superstition holds any truth, it's pretty awesome for all the possibilities.
