Houston Baker – Gateaux d’Ije

Introducing Gateaux d’Ije from Houston baker, Ije Okuwchi.

Ije has loved baking she was a child. Her mom encouraged her interest and helped her to create different cake flavors using various fruits. She states, “I went back to baking when I needed a second stream of income and had a very lucrative and thriving business making all kinds of cakes, particularly wedding cakes. Now I have time on my hands and I decided to go back to my first love.”

Check out some her cakes below! I’ve had first hand experience in tasting these cakes and they are mighty delicious!

  • Strawberry cake infused with real strawberries with strawberry cream cheese filling and frosting.
  • Signature vanilla cake with homemade lemon curd and blueberry filling and a basket weave and roses buttercream design
  • Italian cream cake delight! A pecan and coconut infused experience.
  • Amaretto and chocolate chip cheese cake experience! Better tasted than imagined.
  • Triple chocolate decadence! This rich and dark chocolate cake is almost a sinful indulgence. White and milk chocolate curls complete the experience.
  • Blueberry explosion! Blueberry purée baked into the cake batter with a cream cheese and blueberry compote filling takes this beyond just cake.
  • Rich fruit cake with rum soaked raisins and cherries, nuts and even more rum! What’s not to like?
  • Rich and moist carrot cake with a cream cheese filling and frosting, covered with a satin finish fondant and garnished with fondant carrots!
  • Not so average Pound Cake
  • Red Velvet cake that’s so moist and decadent.
  • Caramel and Matcha Cake
  • Triple Threat: Chocolate, Vanilla and Strawberry
