‘When it comes to fillings and flavours, why not go for something seasonally appropriate?’ says cake maker Wade. ‘We’re thinking orangeflavoured cake with a granadilla-flavoured filling or a spiced pineapple carrot cake with a white chocolate and cream cheese ganache filling. Yum!’ Fondant-covered cake with gold, airbrushed, foiled top tier and hand-painted bottom tier, decorated with sugar flowers (R2 000 excl VAT and delivery) Cakes by Wade. To recreate this look, visit markets or antique stores and look for French linens like monogrammed napkins, runners, or tablecloths. Or, borrow a few family treasures to dress up your tables: antique candlesticks, or old family crystal glasses – even if they are all mismatched, it will add to the appeal of the look.
