Wedding Cakes in South Africa

The wedding cake is one of the oldest standing traditions in the wedding industry and while the traditional tiered cake will never go out of fashion, South African cake designers are pushing the boundaries beyond every bride's wildest expectations.

These days wedding cakes are available in all interesting shapes and decadent sizes and can be crafted to your exact specifications – from cupcakes and cake pops, to macaroon towers and off-centre tiers.

Here on the Celebration site we're proud to feature the crème de la crème of South African cake designers, affording you the unique opportunity to browse through pictures of the most mesmerising cake and frosting creations. These highly skilled wedding cake artists have experience in using a range of cake accessories, icings, cake varieties, fondants and moulds, and the keen eye to recreate just about any wedding cake design you sling at them.

Unless your mother, sister, aunt or neighbour is a highly skilled wedding cake baker with a successful wedding or two under the apron belt, it's always wise to call in the services of a professional wedding cake designer – in other words, someone who won't melt under pressure and knows a thing or two about dealing with a bride-to-be.

When interviewing potential wedding cake designers, also be sure to ask whether delivery is included in the total price of the masterpiece. After all, this highly specialised job isn't something you can leave in the hands of the clumsy best man and, as many a bride has discovered on the morning of her big day – transporting a wedding cake yourself is hardly a piece of cake.

Once you've settled on a cake designer, do allow for a little creative freedom! While you might have a certain picture in your mind, you might just be blown away by the spectacular wedding cake ideas bubbling inside that colourful mind.
