It was the biggest of all learning assemblage. It was the Uncut learning, a fun fantastic bakers seminar. It was live at the event hall of the Civic Centre in Vi Lagos.
This event brought together almost all the bakers in the Nigerian baking industry. I use the word “almost” because the few who didn’t make it wished they did. There were lots of superb demo classes by master bakers of Nigerian origin both from here and from the diaspora. It was indeed a big resource from bakers to connect and learn. It was really uncut, unadulterated….
Tarela Okene, the Creative Director and CEO of Dripples Cakes is one of Naija’s finest in cake artistry. Her works has been recognized both here in Nigeria and abroad as masterpieces at different levels. One thing that people also love about her is her large heart. She gives (knowledge) like she doesn’t need it! A lot of bakers today have attributed their craft and precision to her tutelage…
Today in this special NTWCI segment, I present her various ideas of traditional wedding cake. Please let’s give it up for this sugar diva as we go on this view tour of her cakes…
You can always count on Naija bakers for a massive roll-out. These days I don't have to stress myself to compile cakes for publishing because there will always be a lot on my table each new day. The beauty of it is that these cakes that keep flowing are all awesome. I have been totally convinced a long time that Naija no de carry last when it comes to craft.

I just got her in my inbox and she says "Congratulations on being 2016 Best cake Blog award winner! that's amazing. I was wondering if you have seen my page @kyrahskitchen. I'm 11 years old girl baker from Birmingham United Kingdom. It will make my day if you follow me and repost one of my cupcakes if you like them. Thank you - Kyrah"

Today I want to cheer you up again with my cake news. Today i want to share a beautiful result of my long neck peep into the ovens of Cupcake Factory.
The CEO and founder, Fatimah Aliko Dangote is not that much of a social media "show off person" and probably you won't know much about her exploits in the cake industry, but I tell you, her brand is really making waves in the Ikeja axis, the whole of Lagos and indeed beyond. I just peeped during the week and I saw gorgeous cakes rolling out.....I saw style and class on display....moreover I saw consistency in quality.
My dear people, let's have a look at these few designs I showcase here...
