So I got married about a month ago and decided a groomscake was a good idea.

A groomscake is a tradition mostly practiced in the southern US.  But i'll be damned if I let a little thing like me living in California stop me from having one!

The tradition typically represents a cake that is themed around hobbies of the groom.  I decided that I was going to make my wedding party in Lego and throw in some SW themes.  Yes it is actual cake and yes it was eaten during our reception.  I did have some casualities though, someone stole an Ewok.

With out further ado, here are pics:

Nice cake! :grin:

When I first saw this, I was like "what the... what does cake have to do with Star Wars!?!?!?

But now I have been enlightened to one simple fact: Everything has to do with Star Wars!

:laugh:

Great!  I'm getting married in September and have been planning to use two minifigs as cake toppers (it was actually her idea!!).  I also convinced her to let me include a small assortment of Legos in our welcome basket for out of town guests.  I haven't quite figured out what I'll be putting in there, but it should be fun either way  :classic:

Great! This kinda reminds me of a story I read about a couple who held a starwars wedding, where everyone dressed up as starwars characters.  :sweet:
