Dee is a wife and the fifth child from a home of six children (3 boys and 3 girls) and one living mum. She holds a B.Sc. in Biochemistry.

Your Brand In Three Words… Heart, Art, Luxe
The Part of My Job I Enjoy The Most… The feeling I get when the “WOW and IS THAT REALLY A CAKE and GOSH AMAZING TASTE” reactions/feedback from my clients after delivery. Especially from the most doubtful converts. Lol!! That feeling is priceless.
My Biggest Accomplishment To Date… Being invited to showcase MY original Cake design Idea at the Kogsy Sugar craft cake exhibition 10th anniversary.
The Best Vendor You’ve Worked With… Sikeola Osipitan of JUST SHOWERS, she has the rare ability to put her clients needs first while equally considering the work her co-vendor has to undergo to ensure the overall outcome of a job well done.
One Quality Every Nigerian Wedding Vendor Must Have and Why? Principles. Its important for your clients and other people to know you have a set of rules that govern the work you do and that they should understand what those principles mean to you.
In my Spare Time, I cuddle up to my husband and look for his trouble A LOT. Lol!! Okay no seriously, I like to take the time to make a few calls to my mum or siblings or other relatives or few friends I haven’t spoken to in a while, or watch a good movie, or I’m on the Internet, you’d be surprised how much you can learn just by asking Google the right questions. Lol!!
Interesting Fact about You… I hate cooking, which most people find weird considering I’m a baker and most pastry chefs are regular chefs too and always in the kitchen. But it’s one of those things I know how to do well but really don’t like to do.
What Songs Are Currently on Replay? Okay, I have a pretty weird playlist cause I do LOVE good music and sometimes find it hard to stick to a particular genre but some of the songs on replay are:
- All tracks – Joseph & the amazing technicolor dream coat (lol, I can sing “everything” from start to finish)
- Not a bad thing – Justin Timberlake
- All or Nothing – Glee version
- Stars – OST Les Miserables version
- Ife wa gbona – Tiwa Savage
- Photograph – Ed Sheeran
- Wings – Little Mix
- F***ing perfect – Pink
- Don’t dream it’s over – Six pence Non the richer
Should I continue… lol
What Book are you currently reading, or what was the last book you read? Currently reading Errm none, last book I read ummm…let me see….mehn! Has it really been that long I read a book? Lol!! Actually, it really hasn’t though, the last book I read was “When God doesn’t Make Sense” by James.C.Dobson. Not too long ago, I was dealing with some pretty bad personal stuff and I tried to find the answers as to why some things in my life actually happened… yeah and the story goes on jor. But I’m fine now, at least I can say i’ve come a tremendous mile from those dark times.
Call or Text… Call Please. My hands get so busy most times so texting back is very inconvenient. So for faster response, please just call but just don’t call me late at night please. lols. Leave a message and I’ll get back to you during the day.
Cook or Be Cooked For? Hahahahahahahaha, Really?!?!
Favorite Food? Really don’t have one, I just love a good meal. There is not one food I can say I’d give a leg and arm for just set any delish dish before me and into my tummy it’s gone yo.
Ideal Holiday Destination… France! Among other things, I’ll eat and bake to my heart’s content.
3 Guests For Dinner, who would they be? That’s a tough one, let me get back to you on that. lol.
