We were approached by Nosipho to do a cake for her umembeso.

To highlight the tradition – In Zulu culture, umembeso is when the groom’s family takes gifts to the bride’s family to say thank you for the gift of their new daughter in-law. The groom’s family is welcomed by the father of the bride to the sounds of singing and ululating as one family loses a daughter and another gains.

The joys of tradition – one cannot help but by celebrating with a fancy cake.

Nosipho says that she will definitely come looking to Dekadent for her wedding cake – where we hope to impress again.

We would love to hear from you – leave a comment or share this post with someone who may enjoy the read.
