When it comes to uniqueness and creativity in Nigerian Weddings, our traditional wedding cakes are miles ahead of the game. I always look forward to checking them out at engagement ceremonies. Over the years, we’ve seen them evolve from basic fruit baskets to more sophisticated works of art. Most cakes depict some aspect of the bride and groom’s culture. Check out some popular options below.
Cake Topper Inspired Wedding Cakes
This is a very popular option for couples from the different tribes across Nigeria. A mini-me version of the couple is made to closely resemble them. Colours and outfits are usually designed to match the couple’s engagement ceremony day attire.

My favourite by far is the last cake with the painted image of the couple. I love how modern and traditional it looks at the same time. Kudos to the talented Dainty Affairs Bakery team for this masterpiece.
