Hotel De Bently Abuja, was the venue of the just concluded Abuja ICES Cake Show which saw so many Naija cake stars showcasing a variety of cake designs. This is another exhibition which aims at promoting the craft of Naija bakers as well as encouraging inter-learning among bakers. There were lovely designs showcased at the event and also cake decorating classes anchored by some notable pro-bakers.

At Palazzo Versace Dubai, a luxury 5-star hotel in the city of Dubai, friends and family gathered again for Coco and Caleb. You would recall that I showcased their traditional wedding here and the array of Naija bakers that paraded outstanding and appealing cakes and desserts. It was awesome to see those bakers work for one common purpose, bringing out the beauty of that occasion. Now the white wedding showcases a touch of class in international design. Lori Hutchinson is the Creative Artist and CEO of The Caketress, an international outfit located in Toronto and Dubai. At this wedding she showcases what I call " the Dubai Charm" The wedding cake is simply out of this world - guarded at two sides by an exquisite mirror image of itself. This is class!
Yesterday (2nd May) was fun in Lekki, Lagos at the new cake shop opened by Cakes @ Delightsome, a cake business arm of Delightsome Creations. Friends, colleagues in the industry and of course loyal customers gathered at the new cake shop located at 52, Ajiran Road, Agungi in Lekki, Lagos. It was awesome as different types of cakes were tasted at the party. I tell you, these are new recipes and they will sweep you off your feet! Every body that came for the party had one amazing thing or the other to say about those cakes.
It was fun-packed at the just concluded GT Bank's Food & Drink Fair at Oniru, Lekki in Lagos. The fair which saw some of Naija's notable bakers among other participants ended yesterday, 2nd May and that was the conclusion of the 2-days fair.
Among other activities that boomed on the fair, our Naija bakers made us proud as they showcased an array of whole cakes, cupcakes and desserts. This saw many visitors trooping into their various booths either for cake tasting or outright purchase of the displayed cakes and desserts.
Yours truly visited all the functional booths where cakes and desserts were on display and had interactions with the CEOs or their reps on ground.
See how Naija bakers played their roles at the fair..
So lovely to see these pictures today. This was the wedding between Kikelomo and Olaolu some time back (not exactly sure the date). As usual, I am attracted to glamour and style when it comes to events and this wedding perfectly fitted my description of class and style! Then my core business which is the cake .. It was a touch of glamour! I am very proud of Naija Bakers as they rock any time any day.
