Fun Groom's Cakes!

As a true Southern girl, I love Groom's cakes. The classic armadillo one from Steel Magnolias isn't exactly my style but I do love a creative cake made just for the groom.  We've had some fun ones over the years, from the replica of the Washington Monument for the groom who oversaw the renovation of the monument to the edible Hummer for the car buff.  Now there are plenty that are just plain bad and deserve to be on Cake Wrecks (perhaps my favorite website EVER), but that's another post for another day.

Here are some I love (some are ours and some aren't).

The above cake was for one of our grooms and was an exact replica of the cabin he loved visiting as a boy.  The cake was designed by Fancy Cakes by Leslie.

 This sushi cake is so fun!

 Fancy Cakes by Leslie created both the above crab-inspired cake for a Maryland groom and the cooler below for a die-hard Redskins fan.

The cake below is from Charm City Cakes (of Ace of Cakes fame) in Baltimore and is just hilarious.  Yes, it is a replica of the bridge from the original Star Trek and yes, I do feel like a dork for loving it.
Did you do a fun groom's cake?  We'd love to hear about it!
