About Me

Hello! My name is Yimika Awolowo welcome to my blog Eden Beginnings!

I am a 2015 graduate of the University of Nottingham, having studied Business Management. I am a recent graduate with a diploma in patisserie from Le Cordon Bleu London. For the past couple of years I have invested my time, energy and my sanity into the world of baking. Here I’ve found passion, beauty and a whole lot of love.

Eden Beginnings is the product of a long-held dream of mine; to one day have my own bakery somewhere in the world called Eden of course that pays homage to all the wonderful flavours and textures that baking provides. For now however, all my baking is limited to wherever I am, be that in London or my hometown of Lagos, Nigeria. Eden Bakery is a beginning, with the intention to grow into not only a business but also a movement of spreading love through food.

The dream for Eden is huge but every big step starts with a little one so thats what this space is for. To share my life with its successes and also failures and this journey towards becoming not only a pastry chef but to become an established brand as well! Thank you for visiting my site! Hope my posts inspire you! Follow me on instagram: edenbeginnings to see more from me.

Lots of love,

Mika xo
