First and foremost, we should have titled this post “best wedding and introduction cake bakers and designers 2020” rather than 2019 since we are a few months away . However, for precision purposes, we’ll keep it 2019.
Last year, we wrote a similar post that graded Ugandan wedding cake bakers and it has surely been a guide for many people who seeking cake designers and bakers, so we feel it’s our responsibility to publish this 2019 edition.
Trust me when I tell you that I have been to more weddings and introduction than anyone else reading this article in 2019. That also means I have eaten more wedding cakes than most of you. If you are wondering how I could have been to all those many weddings, let me bring you up to speed.
First of all, I am a wedding planner and blogger. So when I’m not working over the weekend, I ensure to attend a wedding or kwanjula around town to learn something new or to simply blog about it. In fact, on a good day, I can attend up to 3 weddings. Wondering how I get access? I’ll keep that story for another post.
Without further ado, let me introduce to your the top 5 wedding cake bakers and designers of 2019 in Uganda
Disclaimer: This post is not sponsored by any of the listed wedding cake vendors.
Creme de la creme may not be as famous as the other wedding cake vendors on this list but that could be because she serves a specific clientelle. However, their wedding cakes are the tastiest and most artistic of the hundreds of cakes I have tasted. They are elegant, sweet and their flavor is always on point.
The proprietor, Chantal, is more than just a cake baker. She’s a creative and passionate artist who refuses to design mediocre cakes. Don’t be surprised when she turns down an opportunity to design your cake if she judges the design as mediocre.
Chantal is Uganda’s undisputed queen of exquisite and classy cakes.
The other thing is; Chantal is up for a challenge. She’s not afraid to put her name on the line to try crazy ideas. I’ve leanrnt that some service providers stay away from Pinterest when you discuss with them a wedding cake concept. In fact, others will be quick to dismiss authenticity of those Pinterest cakes – saying, “those are drawings and not real cakes.” They consider that a challenge. But as you discuss with Chantal about a cake design, she’ll be the first to run to Pinterest to share with you more ideas[that she’s confidently execute]. Interestingly, Chantal doesn’t even like making the same cake designs she has done before.
Last year, Sarah’s cakes was the best wedding cake designer in Uganda but she comes in at number 2 this year. That’s precisley because Creme de la creme has perfected her recipe and made her cakes tastier. However, Sarah’s cakes is mostly famed for nice looking humongous cakes. Having been in the wedding cake business for over 20 years now, they have mastered the art of designing grand cakes that were only imaginable a few years back.
Sarah’s cakes designs a wide variety of cakes such as 3D cakes, carved cakes, character cakes, sports-themed cakes, and various other types of cakes.
The other advantage with Sarah’s cakes is they are conviniently located within the city centre – Nakulabye- and they are a large production company. That means that if you want a small cake like birthday cakes, you simply drive to their bakery and pick on or get it within 2 hours of booking.
Wedding cakes shouldn’t just taste nice, they should look even better because esides the decor and the couple, the cake is the other object that guests will be gazing at throughtout the evening.
Cakement has set out to dare and they have truly reaped the benefits with some eye popping cake designs this year. Starting off with Bad Black’s 3oth birthday[black glittering] cake all the way to their latest August mase, Cakement has definitely earned this position this year.
4. Bake 4 me
The forth best wedding cake designer of 2019 is Bake 4 Me. Similar to Sarah’s cakes, Bake 4 me bakes huge grand wedding cakes. If that’s your thing, you’ll definitely be blown away with what they can do. We are not simply grading wedding cake designers based on the cake sizes they are famed for but also considering customers reviews and the quality of their cakes.
That said, their cakes are not just sweet for the eyes but for the tongue too. And they can design any cake size – provided you can afford it.
Cakely is our fifth Ugandan cake designer of 2019 because of 3 reasons; One, Cakely’s director, Asha Batenga is an amazing cake designer. Two, her cakes taste heavenly. Three, she has made the world a better place with her generosity. She has such a huge heart for humanity.
Last year (2018), Asha single handedly embarked on a campaign to fundraise money and build a poor and devastated single mother a house.
However, as I explained earlier, that real reason she’s hereis because she ticks off all the boxes t
hat the other 4 bakers do.
