Soma Jain,the owner of this home bakery is based out of Bangur, Kolkata and it was a hobby-turned-into-a-career only because of the appreciation and motivation received from friends and folks. Its almost 4 years she has started doing this.From procurement of raw materials, baking, decoration and final finishing she does in all alone. Practice and experimentation has helped her to get better.
According to her, everyday is a new learning and therefore, one needs to upgrade ones skills and knowledge from time to time. According to her, “Passion is the first ingredient for baking.”
She invited & made four incredible cakes for us..
1. Dropping Black forest cake – Not too expensive! Good ‘Black Forest’Value for those lovely cakes that are oh so great and of course full of calories but I don’t mind.
2. Over loaded chocolate truffle cake – Cake was excellent ,very delicious along with neat decoration.
3. Pineapple fruit cake – My fav one. Most fruitcakes suffer from being too dry and heavy. However, this pineapple fruit cake is deliciously moist and fruity. It is also healthier and more satisfying than a chocolate cake to munch on. Love to have one more.
4. Photoprint cake – The quality of the photo is really good, much better than I was expecting.
The food exceeded expectations. It is prepared fresh, with care, and has a wide variety of ingredients in each serving. Basically, all were incredibly prepared well.
Am I hungry? A bit, but that’s likely psychological more than physical. I can’t believe the eggless cake game has gotten this good.
Would I recommend it? Definitely.
