A talented Nigerian baker simply identified as Nike has wowed social media users after baking cakes in form of onion and coconut.
The young lady with the Twitter handle @TheCakeChancery took to the social media platform to share adorable photos of her works and social media users were impressed.
Sharing photos of the onions, she wrote:
"So, I molded onions Onion ...
"It’s the color blending for me ooooo, I blended the color so well just so it’d look like onions ...

"Na me do am, your fav Ibadan baker."
She captioned the images of the coconuts:
Coconut.. - they’re not real coconuts ooooo, Na me mold am. - All handmade."
Speaking with Legit.ng the young entrepreneur said she became a baker because she needed financial stability
In her words:
“First, I was at a phase in my life where I needed financial stability and a source of income. I was still in school and I had so much free time to myself I was wasting doing nothing. There was a year I also paid a baker to make my birthday cake and I wasn’t pleased with what was delivered to me. I was really pissed and asked “what’s really hard about mixing butter and sugar together that this baker couldn’t get right? I really want to know” Next thing, I picked myself up and made enquiry from few bakers what their fees for training was like, so I paid and enrolled. The rest is history today.”
The young lady said baking is lucrative but tedious, adding that anyone interested in it should have passion for it.
In her words:
“It’s a lucrative business if you know your onions, the zeal and passion is the fuel that keeps you going when things get tough because baking is very very very tedious.”
Asked whether she would expand her business in Nigeria or leave the shores of the country for greener pastures like many youths of the country, she said she would choose the former.
“I’ll expand the business here in Nigeria after traveling abroad to learn a whole lot from great bakers over there.”
Tweeps soon flooded the comment section of both posts to share their thoughts on the lady's creativity. Below are some of the comments under the "coconuts' post".
"Lovely creativity. Is there a picture of where you cut it open?"
"Come and mould my destiny for me again pls, I have picture."
"With ur talent u shld be water marking ur pictures, before ur work becomes another person work."
