Duduzile Abigail Masuku tells Briefly News that while she started baking five years ago as a hobby, her business, Duduliscious Cakes And Baking Supplies, was officially launched in 2020:

“After realising that as bakers we have to travel to Wonderboom or Zambezi for baking supplies, I decided to stock and sell items like cake boxes, boards, fondant and more to local bakers.”

The 48-year-old holds academic qualifications in two different fields from Unisa, one in Human Resource Management and the other in teaching.

“I worked for Eskom for 14 years, then resigned three years ago to pursue a career in teaching.”

While the businesswoman has no full-time employees yet, she hopes to create jobs in her community in the future:

“I have one assistant whom I call when I have many orders. I plan on getting one full-time assistant. My long-term goal is to hire at least three people. I am looking for land where I can build a bakery in the next five to 10 years.”
