Gone are the days when birthday cakes used to mean the simple sponge cake with white cream icing and pink flowers. With everything around a birthday party becoming grand, unique and customized, birthday cakes have also undergone a massive makeover in the last few years. Whatever your birthday party theme there can be a completely customized and personalized cake for you.
Variety is now possible not only in terms of looks but even in terms of taste. You can go wild with the variety of fillings, bases, frostings, icings and accents. Apart from this new innovations like mini cupcakes, cake pops, fondant cakes etc are also becoming extremely popular for birthday parties.
At the forefront of this birthday, the cake revolution is not the big, fancy bakeries or restaurants but the supremely talented and uninhibitedly imaginative home bakers. Most of them operate out of their house and work on word-of-mouth popularity. But don’t be deceived by their humble set-up because these home bakers are whipping up some of the most complicated cake designs and the most tantalizing flavours while keeping their clients’ tastes and budget in mind.
Many of these home bakers were pursuing baking as a hobby but with their passion and an increasing market for customized cakes, they have managed to turn it into a thriving career. As I am stepping into the last few days of our birthday party planning for my daughter, I thought it was fit to introduce you to the Top 15 Custom Cake Home Bakers in Delhi and Gurgaon. After all, they are the ones behind creating the star of any birthday party-The Birthday Cake!!

She has a repertoire of clients who swear by her and state that her cakes not only look good but also taste awesome. I was blown away by a cake she had created for a client whose husband owned a bathroom fixtures business and gross as that may sound she made the bathroom sinks and other fixtures look good through her cake. Feast your eyes on this vibrant and my daughter’s favourite Peppa pig birthday cake.
