Down South it's pretty much tradition to have a groom's cake, normally shaped as an interest of the groom's. From sports teams, to colleges, to hobbies - groom's cakes can be a fun way to spotlight the groom.
Here are a couple of the awesome groom's cakes my friends have showcased at their weddings:
Deep in the heart of Texas
Texas A&M - Gig 'Em Aggies
Texas A&M with a side of golf
I'm told this has something to do with the game WoW
Favorite Sports Teams
Beer Pong and a little Wii Bride & Groom

It didn't take too long to figure out what our inspiration for Mr. E's cake would be. Mr. E is a gamer. Not just your average one system gamer... we have a Wii, Playstation 3, XBox 360 and 2 Nintendo DSs in our household. Yeah, I would say we have almost all gaming options covered.
We decided on the XBox 360 since that was Mr. E's favorite, and appears to be something very easy to shape out of a cake. It wasn't too hard to find some awesome inspiration pictures online, now we just have to find a baker that can bring it to life.
Will you have a groom's cake at your wedding? If so what will it look like?
