The story of Barbara Okereke is one that will jolt many of her peers into a deep reflection. An engaging narrative, with hairpin turns, Ms Okereke has a lesson which is sure to awaken many to follow their heart desires.
That today she has a success story to tell in cake design and confectionery business is as a result of her tenacity to follow her heart and flow with it.
She graduated as Electronic Engineer from Anambra State University. She thereafter left for the United Kingdom for her Masters, an MBA, in Oil and Gas Management.
However, her fortune took a turn after her Masters when she realised that her passion for cake crafting and decoration was overwhelming. She went to the classroom again.
According to her: “Having discovered my talent for cake crafting and decoration, coupled with a passion for arts, I improved my skills by enrolling in a cake school, Fair Cake Premier School, London. I took advantage of the current unemployment situation, capitalised on my skills by making a niche for myself in the cake industry.”
Meanwhile, today she is a force to reckon with in the cake industry. She is the creative director and owner of Oven Secret Limited, Lekki, Lagos. This feat is not far from the fact that she followed her mind into her talent and passion.
Her company solely focuses on creating bespoke celebration cakes, ranging from birthday cakes, cupcakes and wedding cakes by expressing and replicating the imagination of her clients’ desires.
“We also offer cake training classes for interested individuals, who have similar passion as I do,” she said.
Her wish now is to expand her client base and secure a brand new opportunity in an innovative and friendly workspace, “Where I can utilise my soft skills and independent knowledge of cake craft”
Currently, she is hoping to find a new challenge in the bakery business and grow a brand portfolio, an exciting and customer friendly company, she said.
