Absolutely! The groom’s cake is typically smaller and is designed to reflect the interests and personality of the groom. Because it is a separate cake, it can incorporate the groom’s favorite flavors – even if those flavors are a bit unusual! Surprise your beloved with the gift of a groom’s cake. We love working with our clients to create the perfect cake to honor their grooms.

Absolutely. In fact, we think it’s a great idea to offer a few different dessert options at your wedding. Your guests will appreciate having choices, and you may be able to scale back the size of your wedding cake. Sometimes a smaller wedding cake allows for even more creativity and personalization. It is important to understand, however, that a smaller cake with additional dessert options may not reduce your overall cost. The total cost will depend on the types of desserts you choose and the complexity of your wedding cake design.
