What I ❤ About Cakes! – Berry & Kesiena’s Sweet Love Story & Baking Pre-Wedding Shoot


My name is Berry and I’m engaged to a wonderful man I call Cakes. We’re friends with Ferdinand and Lily – you must have seen his 20 Things I Love About Miss Cooper, – his post about how he loves his Lily, when they were engaged. My fiancé also baked both their proposal and wedding cakes 🙂

We met at the Waterbrook Church in March 2012. I was in the dance/drama ministry, eXpressions, and we had been rehearsing for our first musical, HOSEA, when Cakes (Kesiena) first saw me. Not too long afterwards, at the end of a Wednesday service, the pastor said everyone should look for 5 new people and introduce themselves. Kesiena took advantage of it and hurriedly went to introduce himself to me. I was a little startled because he came from nowhere, but I thought he was cute, liked that he was tall, and LOVED that he said he bakes cakes!!! We exchanged numbers, and a few months later, officially started dating.

So today I’m taking a leaf from Ferdy’s book and doing 11 better, and writing a public note about the things I love about my fiancé. He has absolutely no idea I’m doing this, teeheehee! Here it goes:

What I Love About Cakes!


  1. He bakes cakes! What girl wouldn’t love a guy who could give her sweet treats at will?!Berry_Kesiena_EzeOne_BellaNaija_3
  2. His selflessness. He puts others first, almost to his detriment sometimes. He once took my car to the mechanic while he was sick.Berry_Kesiena_EzeOne_BellaNaija_4
  3. His patience. I don’t know how many other men people would be able to deal with my moments of “Diva Drama Queen-dom.”Berry_Kesiena_EzeOne_BellaNaija_5
  4. His generosity. Cakes would give the shirt off his back to any friend in need.Berry_Kesiena_EzeOne_BellaNaija_6
  5. His height. I like a man that I can look up to, both literally and figuratively!Berry_Kesiena_EzeOne_BellaNaija_11
  6. His passion. My honey has a degree in Geology, but has always loved baking.Berry_Kesiena_EzeOne_BellaNaija_12
  7. His work ethic. Cakes will work through the night with little or no sleep, making sure his clients get their lovely cake orders.Berry_Kesiena_EzeOne_BellaNaija_13
  8. His love for children. He works in the children’s department at church and wants to invite ALL THE KIDS to our wedding (Sorry babe, not happening).Berry_Kesiena_EzeOne_BellaNaija_14
  9. His foot rubs. When he thinks I’m tired or stressed out, he tells me to place my feet on his laps and rubs the fatigue away.Berry_Kesiena_EzeOne_BellaNaija_17
  10. His peaceful nature. When my feisty temper rears her ugly head, Cakes’ cool head prevails.Berry_Kesiena_EzeOne_BellaNaija_18
  11. His hands. From the way he holds my hand when we’re walking together to the way he hugs me tight enough that I could pass out.Berry_Kesiena_EzeOne_BellaNaija_21
  12. His playful demeanor. Although it can be annoying, especially when I’m PMSing.Berry_Kesiena_EzeOne_BellaNaija_27Berry_Kesiena_EzeOne_BellaNaija_22
  13. His optimism. Cakes has faith for a million people combined! When I worry about the future, my job, and other issues, he calms me down with his optimism.Berry_Kesiena_EzeOne_BellaNaija_23
  14. His ambition. He knows where he’s been, where he’s going to, and is working hard to get there. Although I’m not sure a Cake Baking-Designing President is what Nigeria needs. :pBerry_Kesiena_EzeOne_BellaNaija_29
  15. His phone calls. In this day and age, when too many guys want to have BBM relationships, I get phone calls through the day.Berry_Kesiena_EzeOne_BellaNaija_31
  16. His heroism. He was this close to beating up a bus driver who’d been driving aggressively and ended up hitting my car. *Granted, I wanted to beat the guy up too*Berry_Kesiena_EzeOne_BellaNaija_33Berry_Kesiena_EzeOne_BellaNaija_36
  17. His self-control. He ended up not beating the guy up, after someone yelled “OGA, PLEASE DON’T ALLOW THE DEVIL TO USE YOU!”Berry_Kesiena_EzeOne_BellaNaija_38
  18. His loving looks. The way he looks at me tells everybody that he loves me!Berry_Kesiena_EzeOne_BellaNaija_40
  19. His honesty. Even though every now and then, it gets him in trouble with me. At least I can trust him.Berry_Kesiena_EzeOne_BellaNaija_43
  20. His fake threat to sing at our wedding. DUDE. DO NOT EVEN TRY IT.Berry_Kesiena_EzeOne_BellaNaija_45
  21. His love for family. He’s very family-oriented, and has taken my family as his own. He even sends cakes to my siblings in Atlanta.
  22. His looks. My fiance’s a good-looking dude, sha!
  23. His knowledge about cars. I’ve been driving for 15+ years, and I didn’t know that the little flap thingy on the rear view mirror reduces the glare of headlights from following cars. Thanks Cakes!
  24. His humility. He treats everybody with respect. The rare times when he speaks out in anger, he’s quick to apologize for his tone and make amends.
  25. His mistakes. The missteps he made before we met and even yesterday, major and minor, have shaped him into the better man that he is today.
  26. His love. If I had amnesia every day, the one thing that I’d be forced to remember is that Cakes loves me… because he says it multiple times throughout the day.
  27. His faith. I love that he’s a man set out to seek and fulfill God’s will and plan for his life and our lives together.
  28. His past. His upbringing, experiences, past relationships and more make him appreciative of what he has today.
  29. His kindness. He genuinely cares for and about people. If he knows any of my friends is having difficulties, he’ll ask over and over about their wellbeing. Whenever I get sick, he’ll go looking for food and medicine for me, even if he has to leave his house at night to get to me.
  30. His helpfulness. He actually has to scold me often, because I forget to let him open doors for me. He’ll take whatever bags I’m holding if he thinks they’re heavy.
  31. His heartbeat… aka ME!!! Yes, I love myself. Just kidding! (I’m really not kidding though)

More About The Baking Pre-Wedding Shoot Concept:
Since Kesiena bakes cakes, I thought it would be cute to have a baking session for our engagement photos. Our friend, Ezemdi visited Nigeria for his own traditional wedding, and we exchanged his photography services for their traditional wedding cake from Kesiena.

How He Proposed!
My birthday was coming up at the end of May. Cakes and I already knew we wanted to get married, so I knew a proposal was imminent. I told him not to propose on my birthday (because I wanted a separate birthday present!) My friend and I share the same birthday, so we’d planned to have a ‘Glitz and Glam’ Birthday dinner at her house, with a few friends and Chef Fregz catering. Dinner was FABULOUS! It was a 5-course meal, and we had a photographer to capture the evening, along with musicians. After dinner, we planned to go out for drinks, but the other girls were lazing about in the living room and I noticed they were acting funny. They were whispering to each other, and would clam up or change topic when I got close. Eventually, I sat at the dining table to talk to my cousin, and a minute later, Cakes walks in, all dressed up! He got down on one knee and said my full name (all 5 of them), while I hid my face in the table (I was crying). It took me a while to compose myself, but I finally lifted my head up and hugged him with a kiss! He’d also come with a cake that read “SHE SAID YES.”

  • dont mention August 30, 2013 at 2:02 pm

    wow….it feels like she is talking about my boyfriend….he is all that she has described and more….we r both talking abt marriage too n i hope he proposes someday…i was always the one who didnt care about marriage and i never dreamt of getting married like other girls do bc growing up, i didnt have a good example of marriage from both my parents n uncles…my dad is an amazing father but as a husband, he failed my mom, same thing with my uncles. that left a bad taste of marriage in my mouth and reason why i never gave it a second thought. But since meeting my boyfriend, i can only dream of the day i become his mrs. he has an amazing soul and i love the way he loves me, he makes it easy for me to trust him, n love him in return n i cant wait to spend my future with him. he is always talking abt us getting married n sometimes, i get scared i will drive him away bc i can be difficult sometimes. so far he hasnt *winks*…which i am glad n we r coming up on our one year anniversary next month. lucky lady i am….sorry, i over digressed but i couldnt help it….congrats to u n cakes my dear n may ur future be joyfilled…..God bless u both.

  • Aibee August 30, 2013 at 3:15 pm

    This officially is my best pre-wedding shoot ever. Oh
    Jesus, I’m officially jealous. Good Lord! I’ve never been one to
    rain down prayer points on wedding posts but this one has me
    scabashing right here mehn. JESUS, oya settle me oh loruko

  • Aibee August 30, 2013 at 3:17 pm

    Plus this couple has my dream height difference 45degree’s
    mehn. Even in her heels, he’s still tall. Where are the tall men in
    this world oh? I’m done with short and equal-height men. Something
    about the lack of a height difference often tampers with their
    sense of self. Now that last bit was a rant.

    • somebody August 30, 2013 at 7:38 pm

      The height thing, tell me about it! Them “shorties” want to
      be with the tall girls but the tall girls no want. You see this
      life? *sigh* LOL! Congrats Berry and Cakes…beautifully written
      Berry. I love, LOVE the height difference between you too.

    • Mariaah September 2, 2013 at 4:21 pm

      As in ehh!! Told God I was done with equal height too (no offence).. Then came along this guy I met recently we still “talking” though.. Fingers crossed! 🙂

  • eniola August 30, 2013 at 3:26 pm

    Congratulations darling Berry. We finally get to see a face to Cakes, he’s super handsome. God bless you two.

    Hello beautiful House,
    I am fairly new here,although iv come across this board a few times,iv really never posted much here.

    I decided to post this message here to get people’s opinions on dating and knowing the will of God for marriage.

    I am in my late 20’s,a God lover,born again and mostly an introvert.Iv always been the quiet and reserved type right from school days,but I do have days when I get extremely hyper and excited and do things which I wouldn’t ordinarily do.
    I am of yoruba origin,well brought up by strict yoruba oriented parents and growing up,my parents would ask that I go read my books,instead of going out to visit friends.I have carried that into the present,and because of that I have very few friends.
    I actually dated a few wrong men,and now I’m starting to get really bored just staying at home,waiting for the flesh of my flesh.its been a long wait and just wanted to find out how to go about meeting God loving men who want Jesus as the centre of their marriage.

    Some would say why don’t I look into church?well to be honest,iv tried,my church is mainly a youth church and the most that are of marriage age are either taken,or not ready till the next few years.

    I would love to go on dates again,meet a God fearing yoruba man who is caring,romantic and willing to folllow the principles of God.motivated,a professional,preferably in his early 30’s and who knows exactly what he wants in my life.

    Life could be enjoyable if one makes the right choices,but then again having strong principles and obeying them.I’d like to read your replies as well as suggestions from this forum.Thanks for taking out time to read my msg.God bless.

    You can reach me on myjesus500@yahoo.com

      now daarling what hit me in your post is the word yoruba……while there is nothing wrong in having preferences dont you think limiting yourself to a tribe will limit your chances? am guessing your parents are strict yorubas who will want you to marry from your tribe? that is a no no with God…the body of christ is not centered on tribe etc…..you can find happiness with any rac
