A grooms cake is generally cut following the wedding cake. Groom's cakes are a second wedding cake to honor the groom. The cake can be ordered by the bride as a surprise for her groom, by the groom himself, or by the bridal couple together. Grooms cakes can be served also at the rehearsal dinner, as an alternate dessert with the wedding cake, or as a late night dessert for the wedding party.
