Elana Afrika-Bredenkamp’s daughter designs her own birthday cake

Radio presenter and media personality, Elana Afrika-Bredenkamp’s daughter is proof that art runs in the family, dreaming up and designing her own birthday cake.


Television and radio presenter, mompreneur and actress, Elana Afrika-Bredenkamp took to Instagram yesterday with a picture of the most colourful and unique birthday cake you’ve ever seen.

The photo was joined by second one – that of a picture drawn by her eldest daughter, Esther.

The piece of art, which was clearly drawn with the utmost care and attention to detail, showcased the now 7-year-old’s ideal birthday cake, which she has clearly been dreaming about for a long time.

And, a dream cake it was!

With it being such a big dream, Esther’s parents, Elana Afrika-Bredenkamp and Ian Bredenkamp took initiative and had the cake made for her birthday. One could only imagine the utter surprise and excitement on her face as she caught the first glimpse of her dream cake!

“Esther designed her own cake and we had it made especially for her,” wrote Elana on her Instagram page yesterday. “I can’t be prouder of her.”
