Alright – so today we’ve got the honor of introducing you to Amina Adeyemi. We think you’ll enjoy our conversation, we’ve shared it below.
Amina, thanks for joining us, excited to have you contributing your stories and insights. Alright, so we’d love to hear about how you got your first client or customer. What’s the story?
In April 2020, I was taking a nap and my friend’s call woke me up. She reached out to me to let me know that her friend wants a birthday cake for her daughter’s first birthday. I told her, I haven’t done any cake for anyone asides a few of my friends and my kiddos. She was like, she already told her friend that I can do and she believes in me and she knows I can. I thanked her for her confidence in me and asked her to send the cake inspiration. I was soo proud of the cake once it was done. Once my husband and my dad saw the cake, they were like “you should really turn your hobby into a business. Everyone was soo impressed and loved the cake. That’s how Veeyon Cakes was born.
Great, appreciate you sharing that with us. Before we ask you to share more of your insights, can you take a moment to introduce yourself and how you got to where you are today to our readers?
My name is Amina Adeyemi. I am a cake artist, attorney, wife and a mom to 2 beautiful boys.
I started baking in 2018 while preparing for my bar exams. I got bored and tired of reading and decided to do something to distract me. I decided to make a cake for my husband’s birthday. It didn’t turn out the way I wanted but I was proud that I was able to make the cake. I further challenged myself to make my oldest son’s birthday cake 2 months later. It turned out beautifully well. Afterwards, I reached out to a few of my friends and told them I would like to make their kids birthday cake. That I just wanted to use it to practice new flavors, new techniques and recipes.
In April 2020, one of my friends reached out to me that a friend of hers wanted a cake for her daughter’s first birthday. That’s how Veeyon Cakes was born.

The best source of new clients for me is “word of mouth”
