The birthday party was themed "Bringing The 70's Back"...the costumes were perfect, the guests were on point, the venue and event planning was superb.. and the CAKE??? your guess is a good as mine!
Guess who was celebrating? Its Tonye Cole, MD of Sahara Group, a loving husband, a proud father and a biker. He is one of Naija's top CEOs and he just turned 50!
My ever radiant bakers and cake lovers, last week we started a programme on our Facebook page tagged "Free Cake Lecture Day" which airs every Wednesday of the week. On this day, associates of the blog can share any lecture ( tutorials, recipes, et al ) for FREE on the page. I plan to always publish interesting tutorials and recipes on the blog so everybody can read and practice.
On our first outing on this programme, Our amiable Favour Adewuyi of Favourz Cakes n' More Port Harcourt, shared this wonderful tutorial on how to achieve a palm fruit cake..
Let's see her step-by-step approach to this cake...
Good morning my darling bakers and cake lovers. Thank God It's Friday! In this new year, don't hesitate to make yourself happy. Studies have shown that happy people live longer lives than sad people. Please do what ever you can to keep being happy. From this back end, I will ensure that I bring programmes that will make you happy
In today's segment of the NBDS, I bring to you a baker from Ibadan, Oyo state. She is making waves as a baker and she has always kept it simple and cool. Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you Opeyemi Akande of Cherish Cakes and Treats. Let's sit back, relax and read through her experiences in the field
I've made it a point of duty here to always showcase latest traditional wedding cakes for readers to have ideas on the next trad event. We are a cultural people and we can never rule out this event in our wedding life. This segment is therefore very important for all of us....Even if you are married, you have a friend or relation that needs this. Please save and share with them
Let's look at these few I shared...
Get inspired with these wonderful contemporary designs on wedding cakes. Note the beauty in simplicity. These cakes are not over-crowded with decoration (except for a few) and so the come out simple but beautifully highlighted with few accents. This generally exposes their perfect structure (which is the basis of wedding cake decorating)
Our Naija bakers rock!......Check them out and save them as reference for your own wedding events.
This is a story of love, romance and cake....I love the fact that we bakers are always in the picture. In this case, we have Anna's sweet Treats making the day for the couple.
Tonie and Chris are just two blest people who have been united as one. Friends and family gathered to cheer this couple to married life...I'm sure none of them figured out how the cake was going to look like. This could possibly be a though-out plan by the bride...to wow the audience with her "queer" idea of cake decorating. Thank God she found the right baker to bring her Ideas to reality....
