Getting engaged is a big deal. Some people in Malta celebrate with parties almost as big as weddings, others have a do just for family, and some like to scale it to an intimate gathering with their favourite people.
Whatever the format, there’s always a cake. The cake is the big event, and traditionally, engagement cakes look like smaller version of wedding cakes. Well – that doesn’t have to be the case. We’re sharing some stunning cake-alternatives for anyone who’s after something a little different.
