Looking for someone to make a cake for your next event? Here are a couple of amazing bakers you could try out.
Ann Ngugi-Winzer in Bergisch-Gladbach (near Cologne)
My name is Ann Ngugi-Winzer (also known as Shiru). I’m married and I’m a mum of 2 lovely children. I live in Bergisch Gladbach (outskirts of Cologne). I work with Stadt Köln in a day care.
- How did I get started?My passion for baking actually started back in my home country in Kenya through my late mum who loved to bake and decorate cakes for newlyweds. Years back I used to bake without any special decorations. Until I got my son who gave me challenges each time I asked him what type of a cake he wishes for his birthday. And that’s how I started to “expand” my baking know-how.
- How long have I been doing this?I’ve been baking and decorating cakes since 4 years
- Best experience as a baker?
Every cake gives me an experience on its own. The best experience was when I was I invited for a baby shower and I spontaneously decided to bake a baby shower cake using the little Ingredients/decorating materials that were present. The beauty of the baby shower was wow!
- Worst experience as a baker?
Not worst experience but embarrassing! 😉
My son likes helping me when I ́m baking or decorating. I once made a beautiful cake with a cream topping with beautiful flowers, and when we delivered the cake and unpacked the cake, I noticed that one or two flowers were missing. I was sure that my son picked out the flowers. Thank God the cake was present for our friend ́s daughter and not a client. Phew! Since then I always used to tell my husband to be on the lookout if I’m not around. Today my son is all grown to understand that once a cake is decorated, no one should pick out the decoration. 😉
- Where can people see my work?
You can see my cakes or cupcakes on Facebook: Ann Ann
- Where am I based?
I’m based in Cologne and Bergisch Gladbach. I also do home delivery if it ́s not more than 15km.

I’m looking forward to “beautifying” your occasions/events and those of your loved ones with a beautiful cake.
Grace Muchiri Haeublein in Frankfurt
Am very creative in mind and in my life, I call myself a cake Therapist
I started baking in 2011 but I always loved cooking and baking since I was a teenager. I would always find myself engrossed in cake magazines, flipping through the pages. I eventually took it up as hobby, that later became a profitable one.
I bake delicious moist cakes from scratch and decorate them using fresh cream or whipped cream. I also bake a variety of desserts for all party sizes (big or small)
Best experience as a baker:
When I get great feedback from my clients and when clients become repeat clients, sometimes making weekly orders. All this motivates and energizes me to bake even more.
Worst disaster as a baker:
I once baked a birthday cake for someone and I forgot one key ingredient but the client was very kind and I made it up to her by offering another cake for free.
JB Cakes in Berlin
My official name is Jecinter Isaac Fuseini (Jecie-Fauzya Fuseini). A wife and a mother of two who works full time in addition to hosting a TV show, being a fashion designer and baking cakes in my free time.
It’s been 2 years since I joined the bakers club as a “self taught” baker which all started by coincidence.
While expecting my second child, I would stay home and get bored after my husband left for work and my son went to Kindergarten. On a whim, I went into town and bought equipment and ingredients and decided to try this out. I nearly gave up after I throwing out half-baked cakes and spending quite a bit of cash. After several trials, I finally got it, though not confident enough to share with the public.
Before my best friend’s birthday, my husband suggested I gift her a cake. Unsure, I asked her about it and she agreed. After the party, I started getting calls from every corner in Berlin and this was so encouraging and overwhelming, so I thought of getting more creative to earn more cash.
You can find me on the Facebook page JBCakes where you can see my work or directly DM me if you have questions. I have a WhatsApp business line to get in touch with me +49 152 1016 0259.

1. How did you get started?
Before my son turned 4 years old I was wondering what cake i would order for him, because every time i ordered cakes we had so much leftovers that i begun to wonder what was wrong with the cakes, so i asked my kids and they said the cakes were either too sweet or too hard, so started to look for some information on how i can make fondant cakes on my own, one day as i was shopping i met an ex workmate of mine and as we were talking she told me that she makes cakes and actually has like a class about Fondant Cakes, so i booked the class, this turned out to be so much fun and 3 days later i baked my son’s cake and there were no leftovers.
2. How long have you been doing this?
I’ve been doing it for almost 3 years now.
3. Best experience as a baker?
The excitement i see on my kids faces or my friends every time they see their birthday cakes.
4. Worst disaster as a baker?
I once forgot to add baking powder, so i had to start the whole process again and also forgot to add the baking powder for the second time
5. Where can people see your work?
I don’t have an FB Page for my cakes because I just bake for family and friends, but i will soon be opening an FB Page.
