Thandie’s cakes and bakes
After finding a mentor at her first bakery job and gaining 13 years of baking experience, Thandiswa Ngenju started her own small baking business from home, which is growing into a successful venture providing delicious cakes – including wedding cakes and birthday cakes – to a growing number of loyal customers in Grahamstown.
