Baking Tales owner and baker Nikita Kalra is Lucknow's favourite for customised cakes!
Lucknow : No matter what your mood is, food always makes you feel better. Sometimes, we may skip our lunch or dinner because we are too upset or angry. But even while dealing with those complex emotions, dishes like ice cream and cakes always find a way in our hearts and tummies. Talking about cakes, they have more value than just being used for birthdays, anniversaries, celebrations or parties. A lot of people love a good cake. Hence, everyone wants the best and edible ones. Well, thanks to bakers like Nikita Kalra, we get to taste the rich ones.
Nikita Kalra is a thriving baker in Lucknow who runs her own bakery called Baking Tales. She has done her chef training at the Taj Hotel in Mumbai. From childhood, Nikita has been a cake lover with a keen interest in baking. With time, she turned her passion into a career and is now spreading smiles.
Baking Tales initially started off as an online business. Nikita started her Instagram page which has more than 50k followers. On her page, she would share pics of her cakes, baked cookies and other food dishes from the menu. People immediately got drawn to her baking talent, especially her customised cakes. Now, customised cakes are not just about having them based on your favourite celeb, movie, show, superhero or book. It's also about the ingredients and quality.
In today's time, a lot of people prefer cakes that are healthy yet appetising with natural sugar. Some prefer simple carrot or beetroot cake because they crave one, but don't want to mess up with their diet plan. Nikita Kalra's Baking Tales provides all the varieties. Hence, in just a short time, she managed to gain a lot of loyal customers.
Last year, Nikita Kalra inaugurated her new bakery in Lucknow. She says that these are still baby steps as she wants to expand her business all over India. People now can only place the orders online but buy freshly baked cakes and cookies physically from her bakery.
