These 12 Groom's Cakes Will Make You Rethink Wedding Desserts Altogether

If you've been to a wedding recently, you may have noticed something a little different in the dessert department: an additional cake void of tiers, flowers and miniature bride-and-groom cake toppers.

It's called a groom's cake, and it's awesome.

Don't get us wrong, we still love a classic wedding cake (oh so pretty!), but since the groom's cake is traditionally a gift from the bride to the groom, it's usually a bit less formal and a little more fun.

Below, we've gathered 12 of the coolest groom's cakes from around the web for your viewing pleasure.
