My World of Cakes!!

To me, my mom is the best cook in this world BUT... if there is anything in which I can challenge her expertise…..this surely is the one!!!!! Mommy n Daddy if u r reading this post, I know u r proud of me :)). I never realised I can bake a cake till i started baking one and then after I never stopped doing so. I just need a reason to bake a cake.

Cakes are suitable for all occasions and all moods; they are the fashion queens of the kitchen with their vibrant colours, rich aromas and wonderful toppings. Whether you want to treat a special friend, get in the spirit of a festive occasion, create an impressive finale to a party or impress the guests...the one and only soultion, bake a cake!!!!!

I love to play with COLORS and wat else cud be the best way! Presenting some of my cakes….couldn’t take pictures of other cakes, but will surely do going forward.


My first experimental Chocolate cake with chocolate frosting. Decorated with colored sugars and whipped cream.


Chocolate Cup Cakes


Chocolate Cup cakes decorated with edible sugars

Pound Cake frosted with butter cream and edible decors n piping

New Year party Chocolate cake with edible sugary gel

Our 2nd Wedding Anniversary cake

The one and only problem with being a baker is...you got to bake your own b'day cake :(

This is a Chocolate cake with butter cream icing on the top

Hope you enjoyed watching my cakes. Pls do let me know how you liked them!!! Will keep posting as and when i bake. Stay tuned for more of my COOKING n BAKING n MORE!!!!!!!!!!!!This is me bidding Adieu.

Yummy! Wow... I visited here while I am taking a break from my studies. And lord, I have got to bake a cake today! Just like you, I love baking too, but too bad I don't get pics clicked. I don't get a chance coz the cake is devoured real quick thanks to all the people with sweet tooth around me :p I am going to bake that coffee cake now :D
