The blog hop on women empowerment opened doors to various options I found very apt for encouraging young and talented ladies. All of them appreciated this kind gesture, on Instagram, of helping their home businesses get noticed by a wider audience. Then, I realized I knew a lot of bakers myself, in and out of India. Most of them are my friends and some I barely know, but either ways, their cakes and breads are the best.

So, I decided to put together this blog to help them with their businesses and help you find good bakers for the next party you organize or attend! If you like fondant decorated cakes, braided breads, cinnamon rolls, cupcakes, focaccia, macarons, cookies, pastries or the like, do check below for the best bakers near you.

She was in Bangalore, but has now shifted base, talent and her yummy cakes to Gurgaon.

Patsy’s chess and KFC cake – even the chicken is cake!

Patsy’s Pat a Cakes

By Patsy Fernandes

I have tasted, seen and adored all her cakes for years now. It just took a baking class and some encouragement from the spouse to begin trying out various flavours. Her chess themed cake was too much. I would have probably played chess without knowing it was a cake. And the KFC cake was out of this world! Can you see how real it looks? Even the chicken is CAKE. Check out her creations.

Michelle’s rum bottle and coca-cola cake

Sweet Treats by Michelle

By Michelle Coutinho Noronha

She is another one of my friends who has been taking cake orders for years now. She has three kids and bakes a cake for each of their birthdays as well as for other occasions. She takes orders based on her convenience because… you know… kids! But if you’re lucky to get her to bake your cake, you will be dazzled by her creativity. Her best was the Pepsi bottle cake which picture I still zoom in to believe it’s a cake and not a bottle. So perfect!

Rochelle’s cakes and cupcakes

Culinary Rock and Roll

By Rochelle D’Sa

Another young budding baker in the place I was born. She started with cooking one dish for family get-togethers and pot luck parties. The praises that she received motivated her to excel and led her to realize that this was her calling. On weekends mostly, all her spare time involved perfecting at least one dish. She recently began taking orders for cupcakes, cookies and pigs in blankets. Check out her page and place your orders as soon as possible.

To me, women empowerment is encouraging women to excel at what they love doing. I probably turned into a blogger and influencer so that I become the voice of those hidden talents. I’m sure there are many other bakers that I’m unaware of but I wanted to start with those I truly believe are the best in their own ways. I tried baking but I have no interest, enthusiasm or patience to do it regularly. Therefore, I admire these women who, I believe, have what it takes to be a good baker!

This publishing will get updated as and when I find more female bakers around. So keep checking and keep sharing the same.

  22. Abha Singh says:

    Home bakers are best. I always prefer theme based and customized cake. Thanks for sharing this amazing list of bakers. I know few home bakers from Bangalore, one was in my community and she was amazing.

  23. Cindy these cake recommendations are gold. Judging by the pictures, these homebakers have done an incredible job. Have got few friends in Bangalore and Pune, so definitely would share the recommendations to them. As for me, I love homebaked products. I have been ordering cakes for the last 6 years from different homebakers only.

  24. Supriti says:

    This is such a well-curated list. People are always skeptical of trying anything new especially when it comes to cakes for special occasions. your personal experience and recommendations make this really worthy enough to try once. Keep sharing bits of homegrown business. It’s the least we can do to support them. 🙂

  25. All the cakes look amazing! This is such a great effort to enlist the homebakers and help them grow their business.

  26. Thanks for sharing these bakers . I don’t spend time time in the kitchen But my sweet tooth is asking for these products

  27. Commendable effort Cindy to promote our friend’s Ventures or someone who is in need. As a woman or person, I also feel that it is our moral responsibility to appreciate the good work and give our bit in spreading their talent. I love all the amazing theme cake. In the year 2020, I also started to try my hands on Bakery.

  28. I love baking that is the time I spend in the kitchen. Thanks for letting me know such professional bakers Cindy. That was a tasty treat to my eye and I would order them someday.

  29. These cakes are like the welcome party for our blog chain. All these cakes shows the creativity and knowledge of the baker.
