“I remember I was so stuck on Excess Love back in 2018, and then Chinedum. I remember the class I had in Tanzania. We listened to Chinedum back to back. Those songs were words of encouragement to me. They lifted my mood any time I was down. They gingered my spirit while I was working. They still do till date.
“While working on this cake, we were vibing to Na You Dey Reign and didn’t feel the stress of the work. I had to prepare everything, set it up very well in preparations for my team to deliver to Port Harcourt. And yes I had to dance because I was so happy for a Blessed Mercy. Her excitement was very contagious,” the cake designer, Dew Drops Cakes wrote on Instagram.

Speaking about setting up the cake at the wedding venue, the cake designer wrote: “Was I scared of the set up because I wasn’t there with my team? Yes, I was a bit. But I was also sure of my team I sent out to handle this project. Because my structure for the cake and business was right.
“When I say structure, it cuts across a lot of things. I monitored the set up from where I was and I was satisfied. As at 7.30 am, the hall was set, everything ready. We went in and did our set up smoothly. God was so in charge of everything”.
