(Drum rolls- gbantigbanbantiti)
Whoop!! Can you tell how excited I am about this particular feature?? I do hope the excitement is contagious. You all know I’m an unrepentant foodie and I’ve got such a sweet tooth. I had a such an interesting time interviewing this enterprising mother of one.
Enough said. Lets hear from her.
Shurlar: Goodday ma’am. Please tell us a bit about yourself.
I’m Adesola Adeyemi Modupeoluwa. I’m the CEO Cakes by Edein. I’m from Ogun State. I have a degree in Food Science and Technology. My hobbies are cooking and baking.
Shurlar: How long has Cakes by Edein been existing?
Adeyemi: Over 4 years now
Shurlar: What inspired you to start Cakes by Edein?
Adeyemi: My parents are enterpreneurs which helped a lot. Although, it actually took me a long time to discover what I really liked back then in school, I started baking since I was 15 years at home. Without measuring ingredients I just used to mix and all,some came out good whilst others came out very bad.
But I love staying in the kitchen and I love anything that has to do with food.
Shurlar: The name Cakes by Edein. How did you come about it?
Adeyemi: Lol….. That name?
I am not the only one in the family that bears Edein. It is a family thing between my sisters. We also have Outfit by Edein, and Edein Make-Up Art. All handled by my sisters. It’s just a combination of our other names.
Shurlar: How do you distinguish yourself from competitors?
Adeyemi: At Cakes by Edein, we give quality and at the same time affordability. We work with the best ingredients and as a certified pastry chef, we have our own signature touch on all our cakes. Although we are still working on so many things and the aim is to stand out and get to a point where people will say you can only get this from Cakes by Edein.
Shurlar: How do you advertise your business?
Adeyemi: I advertise mainly on social media. It has really helped my growth.
Shurlar: You are currently based in Lagos State. How would you say the “Lagos Factor” has affected your business?
Adeyemi: I started in Ogun State, although I used to take wedding cake orders from Lagos. I moved to Lagos in July 2016. All I can say is that Lagos is a good place for my business and it has helped me positively. I don’t have any regrets.
Shurlar: If you were to start your career all over again, what would you do differently?
Adeyemi: Maybe I would not have left Lagos after my service year. I would have started my business in Lagos. Not Ogun State. But I thank God for where I am. The future is bright.
Shurlar: What do you do in your non-work time?
Adeyemi: I have a baby now. So I don’t have a non-work time.
Shurlar: Is there anyone you are looking up to in your line of business?
Adeyemi: Yes o.
