Nothing exceeds like excess…

Sure, weddings are about love, togetherness and the joining of two families, but they’re also a great opportunity to flex a little.

You want to look great – that’s a given – but what about the cake? That’d better be pretty special too.

A Dhs55 million pair of shoes are coming to Dubai (yes, really)

Dubai brides will find a little inspiration along those lines at this weekend’s BRIDE show at Dubai World Trade Centre. There, celebrity baker Debbie Wingham has unveiled a truly over-the-top cake.

Worth $1 million (Dhs3.67m), it comes in the form of an Arabian bride.

Think diamonds, edible pearls, and thousands of iced flowers.

Wingham has been in the UAE all week, working in the Raffles Dubai kitchen to get her creation ready. Before the reveal she shared a few hints as to what she was getting up to:

Some of the 2000 flowers and 1000 pearls already applied to the cake – and that’s not even with it finished.

Does her name sound familiar? Well, Wingham designs clothes and footwear as well as cakes. In October last year we covered a Dhs55 million pair of shoes she brought to Dubai.

If that’s any hint as to what this cake is going to look like, we can expect some serious sparkle.

BRIDE runs from3.30-10.30pm on February 7-10, at Dubai World Trade Centre. It will then move to Abu Dhabi, running the same hours from May 9-12 at the Abu Dhabi Naitonal Exhibition Centre.
