Lykeisha the Baker

As Lykeisha the Baker, she became a bit of a social media star on Facebook and Instagram with unusual dessert-flavor profiles. Some of Lykeisha the Baker’s most popular treats included cakes that tasted like strawberry-shortcake ice cream bars, a cayenne pepper chocolate cake and her after-5 cupcakes, which were infused with strawberry margarita, Kahlua, Moscato and other alcoholic drinks.
“As far as the flavor profiles,” Jenrette says, “I have a very creative mind. I’ve always been that way. My palate is very diverse. For the South Florida Book Festival workshop, you will sample some of her delicious samples and tastings from Jerrell’s book.
