Chocolate ice cream. Chocolate cake pieces. Chocolate-coated strawberry hearts. Swirls of strawberry sauce. Chocolate icing.
Yum, right? It’s Blue Bell’s new flavor, “groom’s cake” and it’s soooo good! Warning: do not ingest if you are dieting before the wedding. It’s perfect right now in Houston when it’s so hot out, though! My husband and I recently grabbed a pint and two spoons and were instantly in heaven. Blue Bell claims that people have been already asking to serve it at their weddings!
The groom’s cake is a yummy Southern tradition. At most weddings in the south you will see, next to a beautiful bride’s cake, a smaller, more whimsically decorated, and usually chocolate-flavored cake representing the groom. The groom’s cake is a great place in a wedding to display how the couple met (we’ve seen Starbucks cakes), or a groom’s favorite sports team or college. I recently went to a wedding in June and the groom’s cake was the Star Trek Enterprise! Very life-like…except in size, of course.
