Samantha Liang is the Owner and creator in chief of all the beautifully hand-crafted wedding cakes, treats and sugar flowers at Samantha Liang Cake Artistry. She believes that every wedding cake she makes should reflect the love and the connection between the bride and groom and therefore designs every cake alongside her clients using a design package that may include fabric samples, flower mockups or stationery artwork. “A copy and paste approach just won’t do” in her eyes and therefore every cake that she creates is unique and will never be recreated for someone else. She uses only the finest quality ingredients to ensure that your cake tastes just as amazing as it looks because if the cake is beautiful but inedible, it is just a huge tragedy.
Samantha prides herself on the sugar flower creations that proudly adorn each of her cakes and is sure to leave your guests in awe and thinking:”No way! Is that really sugar?!” Whether you are looking for a micro-wedding cake or a show-stopper masterpiece, Samantha is sure to have a trick or two up her sleeve to ensure your dream wedding cake comes to life. As part of her services, she also offers macarons, cupcakes, custom Belgian chocolate bars and dessert bars.
Samantha made our wedding cake and it was delicious. She was so helpful in helping us select the best flavours etc. The attention to detail on the cake decorations was perfect! Everyone is still talking about how beautiful and delicious our cake was. Thanks so much Sam – Tiffany Roger
Lyndsay McEwan (aka Lulubelle) is the founder and owner of a bespoke bakery situated on the slopes of the Helderberg Mountain in Somerset West, Western Cape. She has had the pleasure of meeting many wonderful wedding couples over the past 6 years and making their dream wedding cakes for them and then, (usually around 2 years later), makes their baby shower cakes, then christening cakes and then birthday cakes!
Lulubelle’s Bakes offers a free 1 hour consultation to meet the couples to discuss their wedding cake.

Wedding Tasting cupcakes are also on offer for the couples to take home and enjoy in their own time and to finalise their flavours for their cakes. Lulubelle’s Bakes have had many overseas couples who choose to get married in the beautiful Western Cape and communication is certainly not an issue with Skype, Zoom or emails.
Also on offer are special and personalised edible table gifts ranging from delicious macarons (with over 100 flavour options) cake pops, cupcakes, Chocolate crunchies, and many more. Packaging and personalised labelling as well as cake stand hire is also supplied by Lulubelle’s Bakes. Cakes are her passion and all the intricate decorating is done solely by Lyndsay. Wedding cakes have pride of place in the venue hall and it is so important for them to be set up correctly so that they make an impression on all the guests and then of course on the happy couple too! Flavour, Design and Satisfaction are a must from Lulubelle’s Bakes.
Lyndsay listened to what we wanted for our wedding cake and created a delicious and beautiful cake that mirrored what we asked for. We couldn’t be happier with her service – Amy Van Schoor

You and your partner may already have a general idea of what you like and dislike. The cake cutting is a memorable moment on your wedding day and you want it to not only look jaw dropping upon reveal, but also taste delicious. It should fit with the style and size of your wedding.
Make sure to book your cake in advance to avoid disappointment and rushed decisions. We also recommend here to go for a cake tasting and consultation if possible. Go prepared with pictures of what you have in mind and what the budget constraints are. Your cake designer will guide your choices, from design to flavour to decor possibilities.
It’s best to decide on the details of your wedding cake as soon as you have a clear picture of the style and colours of the day. Will the cake be the dessert or be served as part of your dessert course? This will influence the size and perhaps also the flavour(s). Do you prefer modern and a bit edgy or are you romantic and whimsical?
Add a beautiful stand and toppers for a truly impressive wedding cake. There are so many exciting options!
Instead of a served dessert course, opt for a dessert table. For us, this is one of the best ideas to add to your wedding day. It is a focal point and your guests can explore a variety of smaller dessert options over a couple of hours and after the dance floor has opened.
