I’ve been doing some research to determine how and where the custom of wedding cakes and groom’s cakes originated.

The tradition of brides serving cake can be traced back to ancient times. The Roman groom would eat a piece of barley bread and then break the remaining bread over the bride’s head, allowing the crumbs to drop upon her. This ancient custom was believed to bring the bride and groom a fertile and fulfilling life.

After awhile, a fruitcake replaced barley bread. Moving further along in time, the bridal cake evolved from a single-layer fruitcake into a stacked pound loaf shaped like the steeple of a church.

My research indicates that the groom’s cake may have its roots in the southern United States in the 19th century. Some guests still wanted a fruitcake while other’s wanted the more modern bridal creation. Hence the couple served two separate cakes. The guest’s sweet tooth was satisfied by eating the wedding cake at the reception and were given a slice of the groom’s fruitcake to take home.

It was thought that if a single woman put her slice of the groom’s cake under her pillow she would dream of her future husband.

The tradition of the groom’s confectioner's delight has been rediscovered and is becoming more popular with today’s modern bride. Couples can choose a chocolate cake with chocolate frosting, however, any flavor and style is appropriate. A groom can choose a design that reflects his personality and interests.
