Anfee's.... if you could find a GIANT MUG, you could put a cover on it and put the cake on the top.... sort of like the head of the beer, and you could put some sort of cellophane in the mug to simulate the beer.

hmmm...I'm more of a cake topper expert than a cake expert, but I might have something up my sleeve.

I assume you want the whole cake to be edible...so, might I suggest for the mug: hardened sugar or toffee syrup that has been heated then dried solid. It will come in three separate parts: the cylinder, the bottom and the handle You will need to glue these separate parts in the end with liquid sugar. The most difficult part is shaping it in a cylindrical fashion. You may need to find a cylinder shaped object--like a big rolling pin--and line it with baking paper as well to prevent the sugar from sticking to it.

Pour the liquified sugar onto a seperate piece of baking paper, flatten and spread out, then allow it to become gooey and pliable. Then 'roll' the warm sugar against the contour shape of the cylinder object and let it set hard. Detach the hardened sugar from the cylinder object.

You will also need a circular cookie cutter shape for the base of the mug and pour liquified sugar into that, or cut out the circle shape manually. You can then 'glue' the hardened cylinder to the hardened circular base with more liquid sugar. The same thing goes with attaching the handle--although you may have to sculpt the handle into shape. Hey Presto! a transparent mug you can eat!. It may be succeptible to cracking(depending on how thick the mug is)

The filling is up to you--perhaps an orange tinted jelly or apricot jam to resemble beer?
The froth is the easist part--whipped cream or marhmallows?

All the best,
Angela Armani

I had a cigar cake made for my DH's groom cake as he is a cigar fanatic. Everyone loved it. Now that he's graduating college this June, I am having a beer cake made for him. It's going to be a beer bottle that's faced down flat and it's going to look like his favorite bottle of beer...Wee Heavy. I can't wait to see how it turns out.

That's so cute. I had never really heard of a groom's cake until I moved to VA two years ago. Anway, since we can't bring in any outside food to our venue, I am going to surprise FH with an Auburn University logo cake at our rehearsal dinner since he went to Auburn and loooooooves it. He thinks he's out of luck, but little does he know the trick up my sleeve! :)

Is the groom's cake supposed to be a surprise?

Cool

Tofu, it doesnt really matter honestly. There are no real rules or protocol with a Grooms Cake. Some people have it as a surprise for the Groom, some people have it not at the wedding but at the Rehearsal Dinner or Bachelor Party, and some people dont have one at all or have never even heard of a Grooms Cake. Its an old tradition that gives the groom a small part of the wedding with his own cake, since its always said that most of the wedding is all about the bride. So, if youd like to surprise him, then go ahead and have the venue bring out maybe the Wedding Cake first, then the Grooms Cake a bit after, or together. Just do it however you want and have fun with it!
