What an amazing three days we had of fun, work, laughter, learning and execution of the most amazingly beautiful and contemporary styled wedding cakes! Each cake different from the other, and yet elegant and gorgeous on its own, I felt proud as I had not one, but three gorgeous cakes on my birthday yesterday! Congratulations to the three talented women and wish you all the success in future!      Read More →

As a working mother, especially one working from home, you sort of have blurred deadlines. Everything coincides with everything. You are baking on one hand, and making three lunchboxes on the other hand (yep, two for the older kid, and one for the younger kid) Throw into that, your domestic chores which should not get sidelined lest you home looks like it was struck by a tornado (although that is almost always the look my home has) Then there are those times when you have a sick kid to tend to. Poor kid needs you, and you have to divide time between giving her theRead More →

Shifting is not easy, trust me. Today we completed 1 week in our new house, and although the house doesn’t look like a refugee camp anymore, it still needs a lot of work before we can call ourselves settled. The kids have found new friends, and that makes me happy. What makes me happy also, is that I have a separate room for my cake-y stuff here! Do you know how amazing that feels? Yes, it still needs work, and it still needs to be properly organised, but we are getting there. What makes me happiest, is working on cakes once again. And thus presentingRead More →

FINALLY SHE’S HERE!! I have been waiting real long to share her with you guys! Couple of weeks ago, Chef Shantanu Gupte and his wife and cake artist Nikita Gupte approached me to do a cake in collaboration with them. This was to be made for a prestigious event in Mumbai. However, it wasn’t just a cake. It was a SIX AND HALF FOOT DOLL CAKE!!! What’s more, we had but three days to execute this order. Three days of planning, execution, planning, execution, planning and execution… we all went crazy! Shrikant Kekre, is the genius behind the structure as usual! Without his structure, sheRead More →

There are some things that are etched firmly in your memory. Like this flower for instance. There was a huge Parijat tree where my Aaji lived. During summer vacations whenever and if ever I went to her house, I’d get bored because I was the only girl of five siblings. My Aaji (grandmother), to counter the boredom, would often send me down to the Parijat tree every morning to pick flowers that were lying down on the ground. I would bring them up in a cute wicker basket and then she would hand me a thread and a needle. She showed me how yo makeRead More →

Turning 40! Another milestone cake. Client called me up to make a custom cake for her husband who was turning 40. Amongst the other things she told me that had to be there on the cake, was a figurine of him, and her two sons sitting on their lounge sofa, watching television.   The bottle of scotch was in modeling chocolate and so were the pieces of chicken on one side of the cake. The number plates of their previous and present cars and the iphone are in fondant. The Zee logo is a sugar print, and hand cut. The taglines are handpainted. This wasRead More →
