Add your own delicious spin to a wedding tradition

The groom's cake is a longstanding wedding tradition dating back to the 17th century. In the last 300 or so years, the tradition has been tailored to suit nearly every region and culture.

 

The groom's cake was originally a darker fruit style dessert served without icing. Over time, the cake evolved into individually wrapped sweet treats that wedding guests would receive as wedding favors. There's even some folklore associated with the groom's cake. In the southern US, single women are believed to dream up images of their future husbands if they place a piece of the coveted cake under their pillow the night of the wedding.
