Everyone remembers the classic tearjerker ‘Steel Magnolias.’ One of my favorites scenes in the movie is when actress Shirley Maclaine cuts into the classic armadillo groom’s cake … An armadillo shaped cake made out of red velvet is a cult classic and to this day many brides and grooms embrace the idea of creating their own version of a Steel Magnolias armadillo groom’s cake.
To achieve a groom’s cake that fits your future husband’s personality, focus on his favorite activities and hobbies. Does your groom like to go fishing, play poker? The cake could represent his profession or his true passion. Do you both have a special activity you do together? A groom’s cake can be anything from an animal shaped cake to a cake that portrays a witty joke. Having fun with it is the only requirement when choosing a grooms cake. I mean really, its not every day that you see a red velvet armadillo cake.
Happy Planning :)
