Let’s be honest, there aren’t that many grooms out there who truly get a say in the details of their wedding day. So it’s important, ladies, if you want to keep your hubby-to-be happy, to allow him to put his mark on the wedding day, even if it’s in a small way.
That’s where the groom’s cake comes in. The groom’s cake allows your guy to express himself in whatever way he desires, and in this case, the more creative, wacky and outlandish, the better!
Here are a few of our favorite groom’s cakes we’ve seen designed by Signature Cakes by Vicki. Hopefully you’ll get some inspiration from these and dare to try some of your own creations!

If the wedding dress is the star of the ceremony, then the cake is surely the star of the reception. The mouth-dropping cakes you see below are those of Signature Cakes by Vicki and there's no doubt they leave guests in awe. They are lavish, elegant and everything that guests expect from a formal wedding reception.
The wonderful thing — if I had to choose just one — about formal weddings is the seamless blend of classic tradition with modern elegance. It’s especially lovely when a couple’s wedding cake effortlessly combines the two!

Some brides dream of a summer soiree filled with the sights and smells of freshly bloomed flowers, while others dream of a fall celebration incorporating the beautiful autumnal hues of the season. Whatever the vision for your perfect day may be, be sure to remember that the flavor of your cake is as important as the look of the cake!
Renay, owner of Sweetface Cakes, suggests that brides think seasonally when choosing the flavors and ultimate look of their cake.
“Try to stick with flavors that nature is providing at that specific time,” Renay says. “When you do, your cake will take on the true flavors of the season and taste rich and organic, not manufactured.”
Sweetface Cakes' popular spring and summer flavors feature lighter citrus-elements such as:
lemon with blueberry
white almond cake with key-lime infusion
Spring wedding cake
Summer wedding cake

Sweetface Cakes' popular fall and winter flavors feature rich ingredients such as:

Along with providing delicious and unique flavors to brides, Sweetface Cakes also utilizes fresh ingredients from local farmers whenever possible. Renay reveals, “When the freshest of local fruit of vegetables can be used, the cake will taste that much better!” We couldn’t agree more!
If you’re a bride looking for a scrumptious seasonal creation (or even traditional vanilla or chocolate) be sure to visit sweetfacecakes.com or call Renay at 615-481-2181 to set up a free tasting and consultation!
