World’s Largest 3D Mandela Statue Cake

Last week, a team of 3 of us and 2 assistants, assisted Dot from Eat Cake Party (the mastermind behind this project) to create this magical 750kg, 3 metre tall Mandela Cake at Sandton City Shopping Centre.

No one can quite imagine the vision she had until we saw the end result and as you can see, it was sensational!!

On Saturday, 28 July, the media launch took place and was attended by Madiba’s 2 grandson’s along with celebs and influencers from in and around South Africa.
All proceeds went to  They used this event to celebrate the lives and memories of Cancer Heroes as well as Mandela’s centenary.
