Meet our Spotlight Karl or as he is colloquially known, VaMakeke or Baba Zvimondimwi. Karl is a Self-Taught Pastry Chef and Founder-Director of Karl’s Forbidden Pastries, a Food and Lifestyle Brand that mostly offers Pastry Chef Services and Manufacturing of Food Products.
Over the years I have replied on intuition and feedback from friends and customers to refine my Cake Collection that is called the Forbidden Pastries Line or as my clients like to call them Designer Cakes. Amongst other things I am currently expanding my activities to writing. I recently self published two articles titled:
After Graduating from the University of Zimbabwe in 2016 with an Archaeology Degree I decided to leave my soon to be promising career and followed my heart and intuition to start selling cakes for a living..Read that again..It sounds hilarious right?
Many months later, many failures later, many rejections later I now boast of an impressive portfolio of clients from 5 Continents.
“My strength lies in my ability to learn, unlearn and re-learn as well as adapt to the forever changing marketplace My story is unique because I do not hide my struggles, my inadequacies, I don’t hide my mistakes but rather,. I embrace them and include them in my narrative and that makes my story relatable”
•The early days were “welcomed” with ridicule and rejection I was also burned with self doubt… I was unsure about a A LOT of things but I kept on pushing I started to see light at the end of the tunnel, my confidence got boosted, my audience grew.
•The future looks very delicious, I definitely want to write more, create more and hopefully inspire others to express themselves more and explore their fullest potential and hopefully pursue that which sets their soul on fire.
