This is the over two-foot tall AT-AT groom's cake made by Cake Central member ChrisTheCook. Granted this isn't the first AT-AT cake we've seen, just the most realistic. Say -- what the hell's a groom's cake, anyway? Take it away, Wikipedia! *cracks open beer, tries to rest feet on roommate's legs, he pushes them off, I slap him on the back of the neck with a booger finger*
In the United States, a groom's cake is a wedding tradition typically associated with the American South. While a wedding cake may often be decorated in white and light in texture or color, the groom's cake can take a variety of forms, many incorporating chocolate or fruit. Cheesecake sometimes serves as a groom's cake. The groom's cake is often served at a table separate from the wedding cake at a wedding reception, though it may be served as a dessert for a rehearsal dinner.
So that's what a groom's cake is, but what's a BRIDE'S cake? SPOILER: The entire other one. And the sooner you husbands out there realize you're the little novelty cake in the relationship the sooner those relationships will begin to flourish. Now here's what I want you to do: go home and tell your wife that compared to her you're an un-iced cupcake. One where the batter was too liquidy and didn't even cook all the way through. Then she'll look you in the eyes, pinch your cheek and whisper, "Honey -- I know." That's your cue to maybe try to lightly rub her boobs or something. I don't know, I'm not a marriage counselor.

Thank to Rodney, who told me he wants his groom's cake to be bigger than the actual wedding cake. It's never gonna last, Rodney!
