You may now EAT the Bride

You may now eat the bride?!?!!!? Well, literally. Thats what caught my eyes when I saw this African couple on Page 2 of the evening papers today. In my mind, I was subconciously saying "What have we done now?" We Africans never seeem to make the headlines unless its bad news.

The Wedding Cake

Well, it wasnt bad news this time. Chidi Ogbuta and her partner Innocent who tied the knot in September 2007 at Dallas had made a life size replica of the bride for their wedding cake!! So you could say all guest at their wedding reception -literally ate the bride after a beach front wedding and horse drawn carriage ride to the reception.

The Happy Couple Cutting thier cake

If she wanted to make the headlines and have an unforgettable wedding, she sure did cos I googled her name and sure enough, found several pictures of her and her cake. According to the bride, having a replica cake had always been a fantasy of hers and a childhood dream which came true for her at her wedding and newspaper critics reacted and said " It's kinda weird to see a picture of her husband cutting into her with a knife, but it's really hard to be mad at her........"

I must say the concept was original and innovative and the bride got her heart's desire but a lifesize replica of myself as my wedding cake is definitely not my style. Wishing the lovely couple a happy married life. Other pictures of their wedding cake can be found HERE and HERE.
