Alongside my procurement profession i run a bakery called Amanda’s cake company ltd that specializes in baking ceremonial cakes.
My passion for cake baking started in 2010 after attaining my first degree , there was no immediate employment and had many responsibilities as I had to look after my siblings because we had lost both our parents and I had to continue with studies to advance my career.
After my first graduation I asked my self a question “what next” I realized I needed a skill to survive. In my childhood I used to do some baking with my mother and had developed passion for it however I had local knowedge which couldn’t make me competitive. I contacted a lady who had done my graduation cake and I asked her to teach me how to bake she was positive and didn’t ask any money from me. Its from this that journey for baking started.
Started with very few customers most who were relatives and close friends but over time My clientele increased because they liked the taste of my cakes and I made sure I maintain the quality and I have used social media platforms to promote my products.
The cake business given the opportunity to meet different people in the cake industry which has enhanced my skills,enabled me to look after myself, siblings and paid school fees. It has also enabled me to touch lives of the youth who are unemployed by giving them employment
