Let them eat cake {or a bleedin' armadillo}

via debbie does cakes

The groom's cake is oh so southern and a fabulous way to add some humor to your wedding day. Legend has it that if an unmarried lady takes a slice of this cake home and sleeps with it under her pillow, she will dream of her future husband. These cakes are the perfect way for a bride {with the help of eggs, butter, flour and sugar} to bestow upon her darling husband a yummy baked good to reflect his tastes, hobbies or sports team. Here are some of the good, bad and downright hilarious:

Parker is so jealous of this cake {as any Auburn grad would be}...he actually demanded a groom's cake redo! Above is an edible likeness of Samford Hall on the campus of the aforementioned Auburn University. It's definitely a great way to say "War Eagle" and is quite the piece of {art}work.

Why, yes, sugar that is an enormous can of PBR at your wedding reception. Not for the faint of heart bride, any good ol' boy would be proud to call this tall boy his own. I'm a big fan of over-the-top cakes and love finding bakers with sense of humor. Check out matty cakes for more fun groom's cake options.

Cake Wrecks deserves a post all to itself, however, this groom's cake, well...takes the cake. A groom obsessed with the Golden Girls {if that isn't a clue, honey...}. Where do I begin? The obvious look of anger on the bride's face as her groom canoodles on the couch with Sofia? The random "tuxedo" dipped strawberries? I, however, love the decorative cotton in the vase by the couch. If you have time to waste {and want to laugh until you tee your pants} check out the rest of what the site has to offer.

Of all the options out there, I have to say that the armadillo cake {made with red velvet, of course} is my favorite. After all, It's got gray icing, I can't even begin to think how you'd make gray icing {Steel Magnolias}.
