Where it all started
According to him, he picked the talent from his mother but had never really paid full attention to it until he decided to take it serious somewhere last year before the lockdown.
Just a year on, the Bakers King CEO has already created some amazing designs that are simply breathtaking.
Aside from taking professional training on baking in Accra, the talented officer says that he learns most of his skills through online courses from the world's best bakers.
When asked how he is able to come up with his designs, the talented baker said:
"I'm always on the lookout for the next challenging project. So when a client comes to me, I simply take their idea and come up with something extraordinary for their event."
Some amazing works so far
One of the talented baker's most challenging projects has been a castle cake that is able to light up.
He told Legit.ng that he had to employ the expertise of an electrician, carpenter, and other professionals.
Another one has been a gravity-defying cake that was turned upside down as well as a cake that descended from the roof.
Others have been a cake in the form of jollof rice, fresh chicken, a uniform of a general, and many more.
The talented young man says he is still looking for projects that would challenge him beyond anything he has ever done.

The 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.
