DRUM Weddings - - CAKES -

MORE and more cou­ples want mod­ern tra­di­tional cakes for their wed­ding, says Kholo Mali of Koolz Sweet Temp­ta­tions (KST Cakes) in Ruim­sig, Jo­han­nes­burg. While cakes such as African pot cakes re­main a pop­u­lar choice, Kholo says peo­ple are now en­joy­ing tiered cakes in their eth­nic group colours and sym­bols.

She ad­vises cou­ples to ap­proach a baker at least three months be­fore their wed­ding – even be­fore then if pos­si­ble. By that time they should “at least know their wed­ding colour scheme and whether they will serve the cake as dessert or if they will present their fam­i­lies with the cake – wed­ding cakes are costly and they need to make good use of it,” she says.
