Former Food Network contestant opens bakery in new Hoover location

CakEffect Opens New Location

CakEffect, known as “the little shop with a grand effect,” hosted the grand opening of its new location earlier this month at The Village at Brocks Gap in Hoover.

Meet the Owner


Komeh O. Davis is the culinary architect and mastermind behind CakEffect which specializes in sculpted two-dimensional and three-dimensional cakes. Stemming from a background in visual arts, Davis is transforming canvas art into extraordinary cake creations. She is an African American business owner and pâtissière who is taking the culinary world by storm.

In 2017, Komeh made her television debut as a recognized pastry chef as a featured contestant on the Food Network’s hit show Bakers vs. Fakers. Baking has always been in Davis’s blood, and she credits her mother Naomi Truman for inspiring her to combine her two loves visual art and baking. Each unique cake is baked to order and designed to fulfill the customer’s specifications.






Davis, a Detroit native, migrated to Alabama as a teenager and went on to earn a BA in Commercial and Advertising Art.

“Intertwining my love of art with my passion for baking has allowed me to venture out and create a seemingly new avenue of culinary art, said Komeh O. Davis, Founder of CakEffect. “It’s been a life-shaping experience for the better, and I love sharing my creations with others.”


With a decorated client list ranging from Stephen A. Smith of ESPN, NFL Star Marcel Dareus and Alabama football star, Pat Lewis from the Crystals and Sir Charles Jones, it is safe to say that CakEffect is leaving an imprint in the world of baking.

CakEffect has been growing in clientele and serving the Birmingham metro area for nearly ten years with no plans of slowing down. With the opening of their new location at The Village at Brocks Gap in Hoover, AL, Davis hopes to continue serving up their delicious, artistic, and elegantly designed cakes for the citizens of Hoover and beyond.
