Join Nigerian Cakes Maestro Tosan Jemide of Cakes by Tosan at the Unveiling of “The Tallest Cake in Africa” in Lagos | Thursday 16th May 2013



On Thursday 16th May 2013, premium sugar-craft cake maestro Tosan Jemide of Cakes by Tosan will unveil “The Tallest Cake in Africa” at the Silverbird Galleria, Victoria Island, Lagos.

According to a rep for Tosan Jemide, the cake will be ten-tiered and will stand at the proposed height of 28 feet in order to beat the current Guinness World Records, which is of about 26 feet.

At a recent press briefing, he noted that “It is time that we took on another challenge. What better challenge than to build the tallest cake in Africa”. He also said that the project was tried to Africa in order to emphasize the positivity and creativity coming from the continent.

This record breaking event will run through an exciting 4 day experience which will end in the final dismantling of the cake. No Surprises Events will manage the event.

Joining as a CSR partner, LEAP Africa will work with the Cakes by Tosan team in ensuring that proceeds from the 4-day event will be used to raise funds for infrastructural development in Lagos public schools.

The Guinness Book of Records team has been notified about the event. Admission is free for all.

Date: Thursday 16th May 2013 – Sunday 19th May 2013
Venue: Silverbird Galleria, 133 Ahmadu Bello Way, Victoria Island, Lagos

    I have a few technical questions which I look forward to being answered on d day such as how firm or hard will d bottom tier have to be to withstand such pressure and thus what would it taste like? Also will there be dummies involved or will it be entirely edible and will d internal support structures /dowels be made out of? And how big will d oven making it be or will it be an amalgamation

      Errr since you’re a scientist and obviously a snob, it’ll be nice to know what you have done to project positivity from Africa. Tosan is a creative genius and he’s using his craft to do something positive. Whatever your hand finds to do, do it well.

      How does baking the tallest cake project positivity from Africa? What are we showing the world? People are moving away from cakes and sweets but we are gravitating towards it. How does my comment make me a snob? I am a snob because I think we should channel our resources and energy to things that actually project positivity in Africa? Kmt!
