Some mother & daughter relationships are formal, some nearly suffocating and some are inseparable. The Planet Social met this powerful duo who work together every single day and happily run a successful home bakery model in Gurugram (otherwise known as Gurgaon). They create beautiful piece of art that makes several important occasions special and beautiful. Not every mother and daughter have such an enviably close relationship, and not every mother and daughter could work side by side either. But some do.
A beautiful integration of hobby-turning-serious by Mother Vinita and pushy daughter Nandita bubbling with ideas gave birth to this lovely creation called “Love is ..Cakes”. The Planet Social’s love for cakes and finding new binge-ing territory keeps the team on toes and this time we found ourselves drooling over a special Mango menu (Nothing Aam About it) prepared by the duo, packaged and sent to us with love.
Be it birthday, anniversary, baby shower, a proposal, break up, bridal shower or engagement, we all love to celebrate with a cake and when it is customised according to our whims and fancies, our day is made. So you think of an idea or just steal it from Pinterest, and share it with Love is ..Cakes…they will make it happen to the last detail of red colored sprinklers you had imagined. Beautifully designed cakes often disappoint us when it comes to taste, but here they take all the credit for creating absolutely delicious and divine tasting cakes and desserts that you would want to indulge in again and again.
Proudly talking about their most loved item in their menu – “Love Jars”; Nandita says that they were the first in the industry to package cakes in a jar and they absolutely love the concept and will always keep this jar as one of the favourites for their customers. Available in their ever-so-popular flavours, I gobbled up till the last creamy bite of these absolutely divine and drool-worthy love jars — My personal favourite amongst the ones that I tried were Chocolate fudge caramel, French biscuit & the beautiful Red velvet jar. The refreshing mango or pineapple cream was not really my kinda taste so it is avoidable.
What do you do when you can’t zero down on any one flavour for your party and you want a slice of every possible flavour that you have the hots for!!! You don’t have to go very far …just dial in to Nandita and she will make your dream come true..Such unusual and challenging demands come from their elite client base and yes they have been successful in making them happy! This particular order was unbelievable but they did make it happen – “They wanted one different slice for each person at the party (flavours as requested were banoffee, butterscotch, fudge, caramel, red velvet &chocolate fudge caramel) ! Also known as a ‘nightmare to put together if you are a baker” – says Nandita. But they were all smiles when they talk about baking and how they have been so much in love with what they do – baking with love.
The fabulous spread of dessert does not end here, we indulged into to the delicious goodness of goey, soft, creamy and flavoured cup cakes. Hitting our dessert fantasy, the texture of these magical wonders were just right. With flavours like butterscotch, caramel, chocolate and nutella for us to sample..we just did not stop digging into the goodness of these beauties.
One of their customers had this crazy idea about cupcakes – “So I had this supremely crazy idea of proposing to my Beau by getting him customized cupcakes. I gave Nandita (owner – Love is Cakes) a call. She understood what I wanted and suggested some ideas from her end. Together we reached to a final design. And voila! the cupcakes reached right on time, full of flavor( I ordered Red Velvet and Choc Fudge and they are a definite must try). Rich and Gooey, they did add a smile to the person they were meant for!
Thanks a lot again. I am definitely trying more flavors. Was fun doing business with you ;)” says a happy Kriti Arora.
Happy Customers makes their day and the duo could not stop talking about their passion and how they learn something new everyday.
