This is the first year I am doing wedding cakes. I just realized none of my orders have a groom's cake. Is this something that I should be telling the couples about? Or is this something that they request special? I have no idea!

It sure couldn't hurt to ask. "Are you interested in a grooms cake too, or just a wedding cake?" That way they don't feel pressured, but they know it's an option you offer.

I only see groom's cakes at about 10% of my weddings. Agree with the above ... put on your salesman's hat and ask them! They may just not have thought about it. thumbs_up.gif

I do about 50% with a grooms cake.

Seems like I read somewhere it was a southern thing.

Many times a cake making relative will do the grooms cake....because they don't care if the grooms cake is professional looking.
