Cakes are a big part of weddings.
People go all out when it comes to wedding cakes for their big day. We’ve seen big towering cakes, medium-sized cakes and even small cute ones for weddings:
All in all, the wedding cake is important. If you want something different from the norm, why not take inspiration from one of these African themed wedding cakes for a different vibe:
1. Animal print cake
This cake has the same colours as a zebra and the African sunset. Reminds me of something out of the Lion King.
2. Jollof rice pot cake
Anybody who has ever attended a wedding where jollof rice is served knows the best jollof is cooked in these big iron pots.
3. Kente Cake
You can celebrate your big day by having your cake rep the traditional fabric of your people. Ankara, Aso Oke, Kitenge, Dashiki and more! Love this Kente inspired cake.
4. Yoruba cultural items cake
From the talking drum to the gourd to the kola nuts, this cake just screams culture.
5. Safari cake
Is there anything more African than our beautiful landscape?
7. Traditional food and cloth inspired cake
8. Traditional drum cake
It looks too real to eat tbh.
9. Calabash cake
These colours are reminiscent of Eastern and Southern Africa. So beautiful!
10. Hut cakes
11. African art cake
12. Warrior cake
This cake reminds me of the shields so many African warriors (especially in Kenya) carry.
13. Jollof cake
That rice looks real af!
