Traditional Five African Pots

The bride and groom wanted traditional wedding cake and theme was of traditional pots that is unique with geometrical patterns of squares, diamonds and triangles that are used in pots and baskets weaved by artists. I baked the fruit cakes and then carved the pot and filled it with sugarcraft roses and quills and guinea fowl feathers were added to give it an authentic african setting. I used five different designs and loved the challenge to be as close as I can to the traditional theme.

Wedding Cake: English Basket

This cake was a gift from the bride's sister and she came up with a unique theme of four weaved baskets over one another and be presented in the form of a wedding cake, that shall have a silver wedding theme, with a drape flowing down from the top cake to the bottom cake with few silver scrolls on the top. All cakes were fruit cakes, which I made and carved them into rectangular shapes with each cake skewed on top of each other and gave form to the theme as suggested for the wedding. The bride liked the cake and it made me feel happy to have satisfied one of my very good client and a friend.
