C is for Cake and that good enough for me! With wedding season approaching I decided to share some beautiful cakes that I have come across on the web! What is so wonderful about including Adinkra symbols on your wedding cake is that the symbols each have meaning so you can choose the several that are true expressions of the couple!
Some of the common symbols used for weddings include:
And here are two lovely Birthday Cakes highlighting Adinkra symbols!
This is why I love the symbols so much – each has great significance and speaks to us beautifully and boldly!
Here is a beautiful video featuring Nigerian weddings . The beauty of the Brides and Grooms featured in this video makes you smile as each new picture appears! It is so wonderful to note how each couple has cultural highlights for their special day! Hope you enjoy this as much as I have.

Adinkra symbols can be incorporated into your wedding designs. These symbols can be used in many ways throughout your wedding theme. Here is a wedding cake that I came across which I think offers wonderful inspiration and showcases the beauty of Adinkra symbols! This beautiful cake was created by Bread Stuy Cafe of NY http://www.breadstuy.com

As we head into the Spring and Summer months our minds turn naturally to weddings.
Weddings are a wonderful place to display symbols of heritage and culture!!

Did you use any cultural or Adinkra symbols in your wedding or reception. I would love to learn about what others have done to bring African culture into their special day!!
