It seems as though the traditional grooms cake hasn’t been of particular importance since Julia Roberts was featured in Steel Magnolias with the infamous armadillo grooms cake, tail and all. The brides and grooms of this modern age have adapted new traditions to replace the tall tiered, elegantly decorated cakes. For instance, desert tables, cupcake towers, and candy bags have been spotted just as much, if not more, than a photogenic bakery concoction. However, there are still those who choose to keep certain traditions alive, especially when the bride and groom can’t come to an agreement, how ironic, on flavor, icing thickness, or theme. Here are a few ways the groom can obtain a little slice of spotlight on this memorable day.
