Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Siklite_Gh, Beatrice Dede Addy has disclosed that she never set out to have a successful business in pastry making.
She noted that her journey into pastry making started when she was trying to find the perfect gift for a friend on her birthday.
“Pastry making was never a dream for me. It all started for me when as a student I had to get a gift for a friend on her birthday. I didn’t know what to give her because she had almost everything. So I decided to make her something,” she told Kokonsa Kester on Y107.9FM’s Weekend Rush show.
Beatrice went to town and got cake mixtures on display and just had to add some oil to it and make her cake. Although she did not even have an oven to bake the cake, her inherent baking skills manifested “and I made the cake with my microwave, took it to her in school and she loved it.”
Her friend who was impressed by the tasty cake shared it with her colleagues “and I had a couple of encouraging comments.”
With these compliments came encouragements for her to try baking on a commercial scale. “Everyone was like why don’t you give it a try. So it started as a joke and I’ll always bake and give it to friends to eat and review. But this year I had lots of friends and my family telling me that I can bake for people to eat, have fun and also make money, so here I am.”
Siklite_Gh has garnered a reputation for itself as a leading pastry brand in the country. Their aesthetic appeal is enough to get you drooling over their wide array of sugar craft.
