What made you decide to go into cake making?
I am a lawyer by profession but wanted an easy and home-run business. Almost all parties need a cake to be complete, so I saw it as a very viable business.
How long have you been doing it?
I have been baking for 2 years and half.
Was it something you always wanted to do?
Nope, it wasn’t something I have always wanted to do but over time, I got to like and admire cakes and I felt it was something I could do . Eventually, I grew to love the art.
Is it an easy business to do? If not, what inspires you to keep doing it?
It is not an easy business. Some will tell u its east but it’s not. It’s very challenging but the good news is that it gets better and easier and grows on you.
My inspiration comes from people admiring my creativity which encourages me to do more. I am still learning on the job but how far I have come has shown me that I can only get better.
