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.
