Anna’s Sweet Treats: I am a Cake Artist; we create custom cakes for weddings, birthdays and other celebrations
KMB: How Did You Get Involved In Cake Artistry?
Anna’s Sweet Treats: It started as a hobby while I was working full time.  I made my son’s first birthday cake and decided to do it on the side from then on.

KMB: Tell Us About Your brand And How You Got Started.
Anna’s Sweet Treats:  My brand name is Anna’s Sweet Treats and we create beautiful and delicious cakes and cupcakes, which I like to call edible art. I started the company in 2012 as a home bakery and we have grown and are still growing organically since then.

KMB: Did you go to a culinary school, or were you self taught?
Anna’s Sweet Treats:  I did not go to culinary school but I have attended baking and cake decorating courses within and outside Nigeria. As a cake artist, you can never stop learning and you need to keep up with new trends so you must also be self-taught. There are many free tutorials online, which have proved to be a great resource.

Anna’s Sweet Treats: I started teaching myself how to bake in 2009.

KMB: Do You Do Bespoke/Custom Flavors?

KMB: What Is Your Favorite Cake And Frosting Combination?

Anna’s Sweet Treats: My favourite cake flavor is vanilla and I love working with fondant. I also love cheesecake

KMB: What Was Your Favorite Job So Far?

Anna’s Sweet Treats: It’s hard to pick one, each job is special in its own way

KMB: Do You Have Any Tips Or Advice For Others Who Are Looking To Start Their Own Bakery?

Anna’s Sweet Treats: I would say invest in learning before you start, there is so much competition in this industry and customers expect the best therefore you must be able to meet and exceed their expectations.

KMB: Do You Offer Anything Other Than Cakes?

Anna’s Sweet Treats:  No

KMB: What Are You Favorite Trends When It Comes To Wedding Desserts?

Anna’s Sweet Treats:  The beautiful displays, the pastry chefs are very creative.

KMB: What Tips Or Advice Can You Give To Couples Who Are Ordering Their Cake And Desserts?
