Today we’re counting down our favourite cakes and I have to say, this is one wedding detail that I always love! Not just because cakes are yum (and I’ll bet every one of these was delicious beyond!) but because they often encapsulate the style or spirit of a wedding in one gorgeous element. No pressure or anything :) Fortunately, the talented cake designers of South Africa and beyond are well up to the task, and this year we’ve featured some absolute beauties! So here we’re counting down our faves from both real weddings and styled shoots, and whether your style is simple semi-naked or full on metallic glamour, you’ll find something to inspire here!
Cara says: “My mom made our amazing wedding cake, which had three enormous tiers, each with a different flavour sponge and icing! Thank goodness Mike and I had a mouthful when we cut it, because the entire thing was polished off in a flash… we had a guest who literally cried because she didn’t get enough and it was all finished!”
