The groom's cake dates back to the mid-19th century. At that time, the traditional wedding cake had evolved from a popular single-layer fruitcake into a stacked pound-cake shaped like a church steeple. But guests still wanted fruitcake. To appease the masses, newlyweds would serve two cakes -- the wedding cake and the fruitcake. The wedding cake was eaten at the reception; the fruitcake, or the groom's cake (as it soon became known), was sliced and boxed for guests to take home. Legend has it that an unmarried woman who placed her slice under her pillow would dream of her husband-to-be. Two cakes -- especially in the southern U.S. -- continued to be offered to wedding guests until after World War II.
