Best Groom’s Cake Nominees: 11th Benny Awards

December 31, 2019

By promoting the Best Groom’s Cake ideas below, I’m on a mission to get groom’s cakes at every single wedding I shoot. However, I don’t eat cake. Because I’m vegan, I haven’t eaten cake at a wedding in years. That being said, I think it’s important to have a groom’s cake at every wedding.

Why have a groom’s cake? Being a recent groom myself, I know the importance of having a presence in the wedding planning. To me, a wedding can be a symbol of the marriage to follow. With Tyler and me, we planned everything together. We sat down and hashed out things like seating charts, music playlists, and what was on the menu. Having a groom’s cake that the groom has control over is a great way to have him involved and share some of his personality and passion at the wedding. Plus, who doesn’t love delicious, wonderful, beautiful cake?

I’ve seen everything from golf courses to favorite books to razorbacks. This year’s Best Groom’s Cake nominees are some of my favorites. Take a look and vote below!

This Best Groom's Cake nominee looks like a tree trunk with the couple's initials surrounded by a heart on it. It has fake antlers and shotgun shells, and a sign that says, "the hunt is over."
For the groom who loves to ski, this Best Groom's Cake nominee is perfect, as it is a model of Steamboat Springs Colorado.
This Best Groom's Cake idea is a model of Alabama's football stadium, where the groom went to school and is a huge fan.

What are the Benny Awards?

Dale from Benfield Photography throws The Benny Awards party each year for his couples. At the party, the winners earn real prizes for each category, such as best wedding kiss and best wedding shoes. Also, this year Dale added two non-wedding categories because so many of this clients are already married and he wanted them to be represented.
