It’s not an unlikely notion that both the bride and groom to-be have preconceived notions when it comes to the groom’s cake. It’s often a ‘love it or hate it’ type of wedding detail. Or maybe it’s simply a matter of budget. Either way, hear us out: Groom-centered cakes have far surpassed the singular role of wedding day sweets. With the inevitably girlie details that go into given wedding, nuptials have become so centered around the bride. So whether it’s a groom’s cake or a surprise dessert you serve at the rehearsal dinner, a cake created with his hobbies or interests in mind gives him his moment in the limelight as well, and an unforgettable reminder of the love you have for him. So here are a few of our favorites straight from the Wow Factor kitchen.
We recently had the pleasure of creating a very unique sculpted cake for a corporate client that just recently came into the Queen City, Uber Charlotte. After having huge success in major cities throughout the U.S. and the globe, Uber has officially launched in Charlotte! If you are not familiar with Uber and their new way have helping people get around , definitely be sure to check into them and see how they can change the way you get from point a to point b. We were thrilled to work with them on their recent launch party, held at 5 Church Charlotte. It allowed us the opportunity to get really creative with a large scale sculpted cake, we designed a 4ft long car modeled after one of the new NASCAR Gen6 race cars for them to really create a focal point at their event. We love to design unique sculpted pieces, and this one provided us with the opportunity to really get creative! Thank you again to Uber Charlotte for the opportunity, we are excited they are here in town and know they will be a huge asset to resolving the way people get around town.

And we now pronounce you husband and wife… congratulations, Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head!
Well, as you probably guessed, no – the couples’ name is not Potato Head, and actually has nothing to do with potatoes. But it’s a cute story anyway!
The groom’s sister presented her brother with a groom’s cake during the wedding ceremony (at the Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden!) as her gift to the newlyweds. She wanted the cake to incorporate his tattoo, which represents his German/American heritage, accounting for his favorite American sports team, and his favorite German sports team.
So that’s exaclty what Wow Factor Cakes did. Who knew potatoes could be so sweet?

As the yogurt was melting in my mouth with the ring, I knew something was not right. Fortunately, I did not swallow the ring and end up at the emergency room .
