Not Akara (fried bean cakes) or Moin Moin ( steamed bean cakes). These are actual flour, eggs,sugar, butter and beautifully iced cakes.
Yoruba Cakes is based in Mexico and like any other bakery it serves cupcakes, decorated cakes, desserts and pastries in all flavours- Chocolate, Vanilla, Nutella, Mocha, Oreo, Mango, Lemon etc
But with a difference – every single cake, pastry or dessert is dedicated to a Yoruba deity, complete with Orisha colours and motifs. With 5 star reviews and lots of happy customers. Imagine if I opened a cake shop like that on Awolowo Road? Lol….
Sango, Yemoja, Osun no deity left out. Stunning sugar craft too. Have a look yourself…(To help with download speed the 11 fullsize pictures have been split into 11 pages. Make sure you click on the pages link at the bottom of the post to see them all)
