Our finale to Season Five introduces Luzolo Ntima, founder of The Heavenly Cake Company and finalist in the 2022 Free From Awards.

Luzolo creates, bakes and then sends plant based cakes and cookies in the post like a “hug in a box.”

She says,“I have always believed that everybody deserves to eat cake, regardless of dietary preferences, whether it’s necessary or not, or if you’re diabetic, nobody should be cake-less.”

Thought you couldn’t eat cake? Well, think again because with Luzolo – you can.. and it’s delicious!

This is a gentle wind-down episode – our nod to Bake Off. Tune into the full episode and find out how Luzolo overcame her food intolerances, learnt to bake free-from (not easy) and founded her heavenly bakery run from her new Cloud kitchen.
