The practice of a groom’s cake dates back to the Victorian era in England, when in addition to the main wedding cake, there was also a smaller groom’s cake. Both cakes were cut simultaneously and served to the bridesmaids and groomsmen. Especially in the south, the custom of a groom’s cake has endured in the United States and brides often view it as a chance for the groom to get some recognition when the day is primarily focused around her. Ordinarily, groomsmen cakes are served at the wedding reception and are filled with chocolate and garnished with fruit. But traditional is boooring. If your man likes a good Guinness after a hard workday or enjoys Jim Bean on the rocks, here are ten awesome alcohol-oriented groom’s cakes to get you and your man inspired. They’ll take the edge off of all the stressful planning.
Get ready to swallow this one—If you don’t feel like cutting into the cake at the reception, have your caterers box up individual slices and give them to the unmarried women at the reception. Legend has it that if an unmarried woman sleeps with a slice of the groom’s cake under her pillow, she will dream of her future husband. I’ll be sure to remember that when I wake up alone with cake in my hair still in my bridesmaid’s dress.

Amazing Kakes, in Austin, TX. The beer bottles aren’t really, but they do contain some alcohol -they’re made out of vodka, sugar, and Isomalt, a sugar substitute.
I’m not sure if this qualifies as “cake” but still a fun idea.
