Mokaloba inspired by her passion for baking

Founder of Thembilicious delights, Thembi Mokaloba, a cake making business, strives to make it in the baking industry. She recently told Vibe that her passion for baking inspired her to create unique styles of cakes for clients.

According to Mokaloba, her target market is everyone who wants to celebrate his or her birthday with a cake and also make customised cakes within a reasonable budget because Batswana are facing economic challenges.

Mokaloba said she bakes soft and spongy vanilla cakes, chocolate, carrot cakes, red velvet and customised cakes for all occasions.

"One cannot always increase the prices because I need Batswana’s support and prices are increased my brand will not have many customers," she said.

She noted that Batswana are supportive if one delivers what they have promised and on time with love.

Mokaloba encouraged young people who wish to establish a baking brand that they need some passion, perseverance and hard work. She also said that they need to learn and improve their knowledge every now and then as cakes trend change with time, and one needs to always be up to date in order to satisfy the market.
