Even though it’s a couple of weeks now, still riveting at the opulence Eniola kashaam and Seyi Ajani’s (Bunmi Lawson’s only brother) wedding elicits. The ambiance was electrifying. The colour scheme on point. The food, fashion and the creme de la creme fashionistas thronging the isle made a fantastic, fun-filled spectacle! A warm compliment from the groom's sister (Bunmi Lawson) says it all about the centre-piece masterpiece cinderella wedding cake made by Cakeflair: " Thanks for a beautiful cake Juliet, it was the talk of the wedding"...what more can I say,the pleasure is all ours! These pictures speak a thousand words about the event. Enjoy!

Have you ever baked with quail eggs? A friend of mine Bolanle Longe introduced these eggs to me as a nutritional powerhouse. I thoroughly enjoyed them in my salads and thought it would be nice to include them in my baking. My instincts were so very right when I invented my very own quail eggs cake recipe! Check this out! veg oil 3tbsp milk 3tbsp brown sugar 4tbsp Flour 4tbsp cocoa powder 3tbsp quail eggs 4pcs baking powder 1tsp salt 1/8tsp mixed spice 1/2tsp freshly grated coconut 1tbsp (Power up your flour by replacing half of the it with whole grain wheat) and if you are gluten intolerant, replace flour completely with almond meal or teff mix them all up starting from the wet ingredients then add all dry ingredients, pour in a 4inch heart-shaped pan. Bake for about 30mins and there you have your very own Juls'-Quail Egg-Cake. I like to serve mine with a dollop of whipped cream right in the middle of the heart!

What is your love language? Say what. Does love have a language? Lol...honestly, first time I heard that phrase love language, I was beside myself with laughter. I didn't realise love had a language until I later found out that mine was bilingual! Lol... I couldn't just understand why I was once described as "ungrateful" simply because I didn't quite show a lot of my usual exuberance once I got this "special gift" from this person. I was polite and courteous with an appropriate "thank you to go with it; but alas! This person didn't "feel" me as excited...long story short, once I got on that journey of personal discovery and self-awareness why gifts dont really "trip" me I then decoded this complaint about my "seeming aloofness". I don't feel as much love with Gifts as I do with acts of service. What I mean is this: If you love me, work for me! Words of encouragement sounds good, but trust me, I can encourage myself! The special things that give me that wow-factor feeling are "acts of service" and "quality time". Entrepreneurs are freaks of nature, we are givers and not takers, so to make us really feel loved, come and work for us! Lol... I dedicate this post to every baker and cake decorator out there working tirelessly to ensure you have those special yummy gifts of cakes, chocolates, flowers, and other very suggestive gift items to celebrate this year's Valentine's Day.

It was about 3.30pm, I was visiting YabaTech engaging some very ambitious young artists about the possibilities awaiting them in the outer world upon graduation when my cell phone rang... ...It was Chioma my church buddy. Chioma: " Hey Juls, could you please help us put together a very nice birthday cake for our boss" Moi: "When do you want it?" Chioma: "Tomorrow morning" Moi: "Tomorrow morning ke? what kind of cake cuz time too short for anything serious o" Chioma: " He's an avid Arsenal Fan, so a cake like that" After trying to wriggle out of the deal to no avail, I tried to see what can be done. A bas relief 2-D edible sculpture of Arsenal Crest would require alot of time and space without the usual adrenaline-pumping experience that is laced with every job that goes out of Cakeflair!... ...Somehow the magic happened, the cake was an instant hit at her office, their boss loved it! What surprised me most was the personality of their MD, very charming and very young too! The image I had of a Bamanga Tukur's son is one heck of a huge order. He had that "Fulani simplicity". I dont know where I got that label from, I dont even know if he is fulani! Even though Im usually not the type that gets easily star-struck, I was on this occasion. Anyways, Cake was loved by all and thoroughly enjoyed. Best of all the charming young man ate his cake and got his Arsenal closer home! Happy Birthday! Mahmud Tukur...
