Southern Themed Groom’s Cakes That Look Too Good to Eat

Groom’s cakes are a longstanding tradition that dates back to the Victorian era. Back then wedding favors were a simple slice of cake given to guests to take home. Legend has it that single female wedding guests who slept with the slice of cake under their pillow would dream of their future husband, hence the name groom’s cake. This tradition was eventually adopted in the U.S. and is still popular in the South.

The tradition has evolved, and now brides use groom’s cakes as more of a way to offer recognition of their future husband. Now they’re much more personalized and decorated to represent the groom’s hobbies and interests, like hunting or off-roading. Some are simple while others are wildly creative, with cakes ranging from chicken nugget shapes to Yeti coolers filled with fish. Here are 10 unique examples of country and Southern-themed groom’s cakes that look so impressive you’d hate to eat them.
