The art of cake making becomes passionately African when the cake artist infuses the core content of our existence in this part of the globe which is the contemporary wild life and rich vegetation blended with our cultural life style. Here one could see the daring face of the king of the jungle (the lion) and the scary face of the fishes from a nearby pond.....the beautiful palm tree with it's sweet product (the palm wine) carefully but stylishly stored in a calabash. This is our heritage! this is our tradition! I love bakers who bring this to life in our modern society..constantly reminding us of our root as Africans..... I saw this as I peeped into this woman's ovens. Yes I saw some wonderful Afro-designs among other creative English styles. I am talking of the very ovens of one of Naija's finest, Mrs Omolabake Apata Abrigo, The creative director and CEO of Cake Expression.
Popular Stand-up comedian Ayo Makun popularly known as AY celebrated his wife's birthday recently. The beautiful mother of one turned 30 on the 30th of march, 2016 and her birthday saw some notable celebrities in attendance,
Also in attendance was this beautiful cake!

Trust this nosy girl... i have just been peeping into the kitchens...sorry the collections of Naija bakers. I don't regret that because I always find something! This time I followed her from Port Harcourt all the way to Abuja and back. Anytime she looks back I hide...She might have been hearing my footsteps at the back, then she turns to see and I hide! Its my hide and seek game and she is non other than The CEO of The Empress Galleria. I had in previous posts addressed her business as Cake Empress...that's just because they both mean the same person
My beautiful bakers and cake lovers, look at what I saw!
My beautiful bakers and cake lovers, we are moving to the mid-week and it's time again for our Naija Bakers's Diary Series. In this segment, our cameras zoomed towards the middle belt and guess who we saw..... None other than Mrs Maudlyn Gbenyi, the creative director and sugar artist at Cake Buds By Maudlyn A.K.A The Cakefairy. She was such an amazing woman to chat with and she gave us insight into her cake world.
Let's listen to her as she responds to our chat....
Have you ever seen a wedding cake, huge, magnificent and beautiful. Everyone is "woow"ing about it and it matches the entire decor and theme, only to cut into it and its just plain and boring. The taste of your cake should be just as important as the beauty of the cake. The flavours represented should be flavours that your guests will enjoy. please ask these few questions before settling for your cake flavours.
