Love @ First Bite

Cake is the answer, no matter what the question is! 

Celebration is incomplete without cake. People have strong feeling about what should and should not be served at any celebration, though there is one point most would agree on: There must be a cake. 

Ara Cakes is my second baby. Its inception was in 2012, soon after my son was born. The story started 7 years ago, when I quit my job as I was raising my newborn baby. One day my friend came home to see him. While gossiping over tea and some homemade cake, she asked what I do with my days at home. “I make cakes, as a hobby,” was my reply.  She tasted the cake and said, “Wow, why don’t you do it professionally?” And by the time we finished our tea, she gave me my first order. And like that, Ara Cakes happened. The fact that my passion is my profession, makes it more exciting.

Ara is a Latin word “alter” which literally means a platform at which religious rites are performed. Being an Indian, my guests are like God to me. So, I believe whatever we serve them should be nothing less than what we would offer to God. So, at Ara Cakes, what we prepare is with lots of love, care and most importantly straight from the heart. 

As I was new to this business, I faced a lot of challenges through the journey for reaching where I’m today. Looking after my home, raising new born baby and taking up the cake orders, all things simultaneously and living up-to client’s expectations was really a big challenge for me at that time. But slowly and gradually, by the grace of God and hard work, I was able to manage my duties. And I know many more obstacles and challenges will come down the road and I’m up for it. Because for me, making cake is all about passion. 

As a mother, I understand the importance of freshness and hygiene of the product we prepare and try to deliver the best not only in the terms of quality but also in taste and presentation by the never-ending dedication and enthusiasm. 

I believe honesty is the only key to success so I never mix my personal and professional life. I maintain a good work-life balance. My family time is completely dedicated to them. And during work, my focus remains on my craft.
