While talking to Platocast she shared her colorful journey of baking. She said, “Actually my love for baking was mainly driven when I was introduced to saree cream cakes”.



“The reason to pursue the saree cake is to create awareness of this beautiful sarees and ornaments”

When asked about her craft of making these saree cakes, she said, ” To design and make this saree cakes it takes normally 3 to 4 days as the process being intricate and it also depends upon the weather”.

“I’m a teacher with 21 years of experience teaching secondary school students. Teaching is my passion and I can’t go a day without doing it. Probably in a different setting now, but my students who come to learn baking all call me teacher and that gives me so much joy!”

And finally, when asked about her future plans she said, “I wish to continue baking and spread this art, and for that more of the younger generation should come forward to learn and also take these skills to earn extra income if not as a full-time business.”
