Sometimes, these cakes are baked by friends and family of the celebrants. But often, baking for events is outsourced to cake companies, in the hope that they’ll leverage their expertise to produce a befitting treat for the occasion. GidiCakes is one such company. It sells ready-made cakes for events, and also takes on baking assignments for clients who want something with particular features. But unlike most businesses in this space, it delivers cakes specifically for children. Founded in 2015, GidiCakes is based in Lagos. It operates out of two locations, both in the Surulere area of the state. Besides its physical stores, it also serves customers through its website, which functions as an online storefront.
