In the evening of 9 March 2014 I received a call from a potential client wanting a wedding cake. It was past 5pm and I had company so was debating whether to go meet up with this client immediately (my cake shop is not too far from my house) or fix an appointment for a later date. Curiosity got the better part of me so I decided to meet with her that evening. This meeting proved to be a turning point in my cake career :)!. The request was for a 5 tiers upside down chandelier cake!!! My excitement knew no bounds, this was a first here in Ghana and also for me! :). That evening and the next few nights I could hardly sleep from anticipation of the wedding date and it remained so for some days till gradually it all settled in. I designed the cake stand and internal structure and supervised it's construction and come 26 July 2014, all our dreams came to fruition and everybody involved was satisfied. The cake was a HUGE hit as intended and the bridal party was full of praise for my work. Am greatly humbled and thankful to God Almighty for this breakthrough.

Oh my, I wish I knew what I had let myself into when I accepted to do this design for a client! Anyway, the cake turned out beautiful and tasty and everybody had good things to say about it so my client is happy, am happy, everybody is happy! That is why I make cakes :)!
I have always wanted to do a sneakers cake and so was planning to do one for my son when this order came in. My excitement at doing this was almost dampened by the problems I was having with the fondant but in the end it all worked out good. A few lessons learned to be carried forward to the next project :)!

Milo happens to be a favourite chocolate drink for many in my part of the world (myself included). I however never in my wildest thought imagined it as a cake! I was approached by this young lady who wanted a birthday cake for her sister who had a great love for milo and shoes. I have so wanted to do a shoe cake forever so my first thought was yes! But she wanted the cake done in a couple of days and that meant not enough time for a beautiful shoe cake :(. I therefore decided to do a milo tin cake since I don't recall seeing any. It came out beautiful and she was very happy with it :).
Enjoy your cup :)!

I had the privilege of making a wedding cake for a secondary school mate recently! This project was special to me because she is such a wonderful lady who has seen some challenges in her life but was able to set all that aside and help others. She always has a smile and is willing to offer support. She so deserves to be happy and me being part of it was a blessing.

I always look forward to the month of March since its my birthday month. As always I will plan several weeks ahead the type of cakes I would make for myself and never make them :). I always find myself booked down with orders and end up not making the cake of my dreams. Last year I was too tired to even bother and prayed that someone will surprise me with a cake. As it turned out no one did so there was no cake on my birthday!!! This year I promised myself that no matter what the circumstance I will cut a cake on my birthday. It so happened that I had cake orders to deliver but I still made me a cake which had two things I liked; Bethy Boop and hexagon.
I took the cake to my work place to share with colleagues and they loved it. I even got a request to repeat the design for another's birthday.
Cheers and happy birthday to me :)!

When I had this consultation with the bride to be on her wedding cake she indicated that her colours were turquoise and apple green then I wondered, will this be a nice blend? I therefore decided to make all decorations turquoise and have very little apple green on the cake. It turned out that the colours worked very well together and am happy with the results.
