She has yet to find a sweet tooth she couldn’t soothe.

Hails from St. Kitts, raised in Brooklyn, NY and currently resides in N.J, Thenga is an up in coming Entrepreneur who’s ready for the hustle, it comes naturally. ( Such a Boss). When not working as a full-time Community Relations Rep, mother of three, and wife she’s baking up a beautiful spread of goodies for her evolving clientele.

So how did Thenga get into making cupcakes? Thenga stumbled upon her talent and love for baking while planning her babies 1st Birthday. While on a tight budget, with the guidance of her Aunt, she decided to make the treats herself (super mom!). She set up a beautiful spread of cupcakes, cake, and chocolate covered pretzels, oreos, and strawberries. The treats were a hit and the rest is history. (Weeerrkkk!)

Thenga offers a variety of cake flavors from chocolate, vanilla, red velvet, and lemon, to the special caramel, banana, carrot and any other special request that suits your needs. Thenga can also infuse cakes/cupcake with your favorite fillings including liquor if requested.

Thenga’s spread of treat goes beyond cakes, as she also offers chocolate covered strawberries, pretzels, and rice Krispy treats. Thenga can cook up anything you can imagine or request! She is the bomb at what she does and her creative juices never stops flowing! (Boom!)

“Though my pet peeve is buttercream getting on the piping bag and onto my hand when icing cupcakes, I enjoy the end result, the finished product, and the client’s reaction.”

Ever wondered how long it actually takes for those beautiful and creative cupcakes to be made? As we are sure everyone one is different, Thenga told us the following about her process,

I do most of my baking at nights after I put my kids to bed, except the baby who keeps me company most nights and serves as my taste tester. For me, the planning process is more time consuming, especially if a specific theme is requested. I usually ask clients for at least 2-4 weeks’ notice to get my creative juices flowing.”

If you’re located in the New York, be sure to catch Thenga and her sweet treats at the following upcoming events:

If you’re interested in making cupcakes/pastries, Thenga gives the following advice,

Being consistent and knowing your audience is key. You have to love what you do. I stumbled on this, not realizing I even had it in me. I am self-taught. I have always had a passion for event planning and birthday celebrations, and so I think of every cake and cupcake as if it’s for my very own party.
