5 pretty awesome groom's cakes

I think one of the best trends over the past few years has been on groom's cakes.  A little while back, I did a post about showing school spirit in the creating of a groom's cake, but sometimes we see that it goes so much further than that.  And it's fun!  Plus look at the talent and creativity right here in the South!

Here are my favorite (and off-beat) groom's cakes, in no particular order...

1 - A drum set by Barb's Cakes at a recent B & A Warehouse wedding.  

2. Are you a world traveler?  Olexa's can make this fun cake for you!  Thanks B & A Warehouse!

3. Passion for fishing? This cake by Magnificent Cakes is perfect for you! Shared from The Sonnet House.

4. Whiskey anyone?  I can't locate the baker but Arden Photography at Windwood Equestrian was able to capture it before guests "drank" it! 

5. Ok, this might be my favorite. I love Charlie!!! Thank you Ann Wade Photography for sharing. Cake made by The Frosted Affair!

Southern groom's cakes

We are Southerners.  People love their sweet tea and football.  So naturally would would see these influences on a wedding day, especially when couples really love to personalize their wedding.  Here in the South it is common to have a groom's cake. Although the tradition started in England, it was even featured in Steel Magnolias, where the red velvet groom's cake was shaped like a armadillo!  

We see a lot of hobbies featured on groom's cakes but more than anything, we see allegiances to football teams.  This is not even a trend just during football season - it's all year.  Whether you are a Roll Tide or War Eagle fan, you are sure to love these examples!

Engaged, A Wedding Library located at 1018 Oxmoor Road in Homewood, AL, is the perfect place to go for valuable resources while planning your wedding.  Sure, you can find loads of information online, but sometimes, sitting down with someone and letting them help you organize your things-to-do list is invaluable.  And the ladies at Engaged are really great at being that calming presence in your life.

Twice a year they do Sweet Saturday.  Sweet Saturday allows you to sample cake bites from several different bakeries in the Birmingham area.  This month they have 5 artists featured - Dreamcakes (Homewood), Evelyn Criswell Catering (Springville), Cakes by Kim (McCalla), Pastry Art Bake Shoppe (Inverness and Homewood), and Olexa's (Mountain Brook).  

Not only will it save you time picking the perfect cake artist for your wedding day, but it is also a pretty fun day too!  Mark your calendar for this Saturday (February 21) from 11 - 3.  I'm told no appointment is necessary for this wonderful (and free) event!  Thanks Engaged ladies!  Main Street loves you! Questions:  Call Katie at 205-637-0735.
