Meet Toyin

Tees Bakery was founded in 2015 by Toyin (Tutan) Opebiyi. As a trained barrister who eventually ended up in the banking sector, one of the very limited resources she had was time. When her first son turned 3, she therefore looked for a baker to make his birthday cake. Unfortunately she couldn’t find someone who could create the Jungle Book-themed cake she wanted and so on the advice and direction of a family friend, she decided to make it herself. The results were amazing for a novice and in that moment her love and talent for the fine art of cake making and cake decoration was unleashed.

Toyin's passion for exquisite and high-end luxury cake creation inspired her to study the works of notable cake designers. In a relatively short space of time, her work caught the attention of industry leaders and she has since gone on to bake internationally, amass numerous accolades and garner a loyal following.

Tees Bakery has since made cakes for celebrities, royalty and other dignitaries. She has also been invited to various countries around the world to share her skills.

"As a perfectionist with a passionate desire for creativity, I pour my best efforts into every creation. My goal is that each cake tells a story that combines artistic design with a mouth-watering taste to leave a lasting impression in the mind of the client "

This, Toyin says is the most important aspect of delivering value as she continually strives to be the best at what she does. Toyin's love for cakes keeps growing and her ideas keep flowing as she taps into the most unusual of inspirational sources.

Toyin would love to meet with you and talk about your ideas and plans. More importantly, she would love to play a part in turning your vision into reality and bringing a masterpiece to life just for your special occasion.
