By Kemi Mobuse - Sunday, March 27, 2016



Baking cakes has indeed taken a new turn, no more do we have all those cakes that are harder than cement and more tasteless than foams. The cakes of nowadays, draw you  in soooo much that, it feels like a second heaven to your soul, if not for the issues of you counting calories as you are voraciously eating and enjoying the finger licking sinful delight it gives. Chai! i love cakes, you can't blame me, they taste soooo yummy and my best especially, are those made with butter cream....i digress....

It therefore goes without saying, that we need to understand, how the mind of a baker works, KMB caught up with the CEO of Cakes by L.A, she is as passionate and as a talented as her works shows and we got her to have a chit chat with us and tell us more about cakes........excerpts below;
