A couple of smart, creative friends have gently suggested that Dr. Fiancé and I have a “groom’s cake” in addition to a wedding cake. I’m sorry, but what the fuck is a “groom’s cake?” Why would a wedding need two cakes? Are wedding cakes “bride cakes”? I’d always assumed that wedding cakes belonged to the couple—that’s why they slice off a piece and feed it to each other before anyone else can have any. If you have a groom’s cake, do you have to feed each other a piece of that, too? Which one do you eat first?
Isn’t having two cakes just a way of announcing: We’re so incapable of compromising that we couldn’t agree on something as simple as dessert? Or does it say: We’re so good at picking our battles that we won’t waste our time trying to come to consensus on something as trivial as dessert?
Call me old-fashioned, call me inflexible, call me a pain in the ass, but I just want one cake.
Is this the first step towards becoming a bridezilla?
