Mix up some sugar, butter, flour, eggs, food colouring, love for desserts and a passion for baking and you have a dedicated home baker.
Chennai is bursting at the seams with home bakers, but there’s no such thing as too many home bakers. We are a city of dessert lovers of all shapes and sizes and we crave the best of the best and sometimes the only way to get your hands on the best cake or cheesecake or cookie is to look at the amazing people baking out of their kitchens and taking large orders to cater to a party or a group of office going people. And what’s even better is that home bakers are as passionate about what they’re making as you are about what you want.
Store bought cakes don’t have that special touch, and don’t taste half as good as the ones that are made by your mother or grandmother. But a lot of the home bakers get that special ingredient and they make sure that it tastes like home.
Adding to this list of home bakers is Deepika Rajadas who founded Chubby Cheesecakes a month ago because all she wanted was the perfect slice of cheesecake. “I was disappointed to know that most cheesecakes don’t use actual cheese. They’ve used cream, eggs and colouring and stitched the whole thing up with gelatin,” she says and like her, there are lots more people out there who want to do cheesecake the right way. When asked about why she started her baking business, Deepika said, “Chubby Cheesecakes was born to tell cheesecakes the way they were meant to be told. Buttery crumb crusts, real Cheese fillings and luscious toppings – that’s what we’re all about.”
We tried her cheesecakes recently and let me tell you right now, you can taste the passion that we talked about earlier. Deepika also does birthday cakes, party orders and in her words “caters to normal cheesecake craving moments”.
