Wedding Inspiration: Groom's Cake Alternatives

One of my favorite topics to discuss on this blog: desserts. ;) What can I say?! I have a major sweet tooth, and wedding desserts are always so pretty! I've shared ideas for wedding cakes, wedding cake alternatives, groom's cakes, dessert tables, and our preferred vendor, theCakePlace (which has changed to Kneading Hands Bakery recently!). Today, let's talk about alternatives for your groom's cake!

Cake is delicious (obviously), but sometimes it's more fun to have a wedding cake for the bride, as well as another special dessert instead of an actual cake for the groom! Is your groom obsessed with his grandma's peach cobbler? Have your bakery make her recipe! Does he love brownies or Krispy Kreme or Rice Krispies Treats? Those are totally legit ideas, too. Does he love strawberry shortcake, or maybe even root beer floats? Barn Brides have gone for those options as well! Have your man pick his favorite dessert in place of a groom's cake... it'll be a delicious, personal touch for your reception!

Here are some super tasty alternatives to groom's cakes! (Psst... Grab a snack!)
