Contemporary, bespoke cakes created in Reading.
Hi, I’m Fen, the hands of MonAnnie. I grew up in the beautiful city of Ibadan, Nigeria where I developed a love for cooking and baking (thank you Mum and sister!), I moved to the UK back in 2000, and when at University pursued my first love, medicine. After getting my degree back in 2007, I focused hard on my career in paediatrics, using baking as a relaxing hobby of mine.
In 2013, I faced a really painful crisis in my life. Baking, my beloved hobby – then transformed into life-affirming therapy. I devoted more time and effort to the hobby I loved dearly, accruing thousands of hours in courses and baking. Requests for cakes started to come thick and fast, which I was extremely happy with!
In 2015, the therapy became a career. With the help of my best friend and life partner; Segun, MonAnnie was then born and I have never looked back!
I make cakes to represent the way I think life should be; beautiful, full of flavour, full of love, and truly memorable.
In 2016 my biggest cheerleader- my father- passed away, and MonAnnie is dedicated in honour of his memory.
I look forward to hearing from you!
