Well sort of job. My brother is getting married in December, and I have offered to do their rehearsal dinner cake (Grooms cake) as a gift. This will be for roughly 60 people. I wanted to possibly top the cake somehow with chocolate covered strawberries. Anyone have any advice on doing a Grooms cake?

Hi there, I am actually getting ready to do my first order as well and wanted to just say hello and let you know you will do great. I am making 2 birthday cakes for my manager's children. Keep the faith, you will do great! icon_smile.gificon_smile.gif

the only advice i have for the grooms cake is to ask the bride for suggestions to make it personal....his likes, hobbies, humor. some brides like to surprise the groom with the cake. the grooms cake is often times the only reflection of the groom since the wedding is all about the bride. since it is your brother you already know him but it might be nice to ask the bride anyway. there might be something special she would like to incorporate.

i'm sure it will be lovely and appreciated. the nicest gifts are the ones we put our hearts into.

best of luck!!!

Congrats on your first job! CC has a section for groom's cakes and many of them have chocolate covered strawberries to get an idea of what you'd like to do yourself. I agree with asking the bride about her suggestions and also think about what your brother likes....sports teams, music, etc.

Here's a picture with Chocolate Covered Strawberries... I know it's a wedding cake, however it may give you some ideas on how to top the cake you are making with the strawberries. I hope the attachement works.

You might have to get a few more details, like size, flavors or colors. But the CC galleries are bursting at the seams with amazing cakes that will give you so many wonderful ideas. This is one in my favorites.

I know it's a birthday cake but it could easily pass as a Groom's cake in the right size. Good luck I'm sure it will turn out great.

I think Chocolate covered strawberries are a great idea for grooms cake.

It would be nice to get their input on what they want.

And WOW to that website. Some beautiful work there too...
