Vendor Scoop: Fifi's Sweet Sophistication

Monday, 30 August 2010

It was my dad's 70th birthday recently, so I figured I'd celebrate by featuring a cake designer who's quite dear to me. Fisayo Gbenle-Olaleye the designer behind Fifi's Oven, is quite a remarkable artist. Not only are her cakes delicious, but I love the way she uses her materials in a completely unexpected way.
Each cake is incredibly elegant and unique. When flipping through her portfolio, I was immediately struck by her use of fondant to create interesting texture and pattern. What really stands out and impresses me the most was the use of fondant as though it were fabric – many of the cakes had interesting drapes, pleats, delicate petals and ruffles that created a truly unique signature design element. Fifi's Oven is based in Lagos and always professional, they are definitely one of those vendors who think outside the box. Take a look at some of the other amazing work Fisayo has done, either on her website   or facebook group
Pure Elegance!
