My dearest bakers and cake lovers, Happy weekend to you all. Did you see the harmattan? The global climate change has really made everything look different from what it used to be before. One of the things bakers will worry about during this kind of weather is the fondant. They will dry out much faster than you'd wish. Anyways, we bakers have been able to work around it.
Today i present another episode in the kiddies cake inspiration. I just compiled new designs from different Naija bakers (Me inclusive) and I have brought them on this segment for showcase. I hope someone picks a think or two from here...
Good day to you my beloved readers. Hope you all are having a nice weekend. Some of us must be busy running in today's Lagos City Marathon. I was telling my hubby that I'd love to run and he was laughing at me He probably think he will follow me up with a personal ambulance.
Today post happens to be my second publication of this year's Naija Bakers' Diary Series. and infact the first pure whole dessert show. Words can not describe my joy when this wonderful lady granted me audience to her cake business. I was more excited when I glanced through her works, seeing all those yummy desserts beautifully crafted to spec.
Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you, Mrs Stephanie Olopade, CEO and Creative Director of Concepteur De Fruitee Ltd AKA CDF Desserts. Lets listen to her as she tells us more about her life as a baker
Kiddies Cake Inspiration Featured
Children are a gift from God! They come as such an amazing package…a bundle of joy to their parents. To understand children, you will have to take a dive into their world. I always respect teachers who spend time bringing up these kids because it is not an easy task.
Now I have learnt a lot as a baker, getting the kids to be happy when it comes to their parties (birthdays, graduation etc) requires me to view the world in their own way. Cartoon is such an awesome way to express the kiddies world! No wonder cake makers have a way of making the kids feel good on their day..
Anino Ijewere is a perceptive baker based in Lagos, South-west Nigeria. Her professional intelligence in the baking industry has earned her a peep from my nosy lens. I love her artistic nature on cakes and the precise finishes applied on her crafted cakes. Now this is what I call a show of style!
She is the Creative Director and CEO of Jaynes Cravings and you need to see what my peep resulted to....cakes, cakes and lovely cakes...
Naija Bakers Rock!
A few days ago, I published on my Instagram page, a call to celebrate our Naija bakers in diaspora. On that note, bakers were asked to tag other bakers. We found a lot Naija bakers scattered all over the world and they showcased lots of their cakes. I will be gradually rolling them out here under the caption "naija Bakers In Diaspora"
Let's see my first showcase....
