When it comes to a special occasion of your loved ones, you want to order the best possible cakes in town. Obviously, all the bakeries have wonderful cakes and pastries. But a homemade cake or cupcake has a really different essence and a lot of love in it. I happen to meet this lovely baker in town, who is actually a certified baker. Her name is Mehak Gulati and her brand name is Bake my day by Mehak Gulati. She has made cake orders as easy and as yummy as possible.
When she was in college first year, she baked her very first cake for her friend on his birthday. From that day on no one could stop her from baking such wonderful cakes. Since then she started baking for relatives to friends. Every birthday party had her cake. That moment she had no clue that her passion for baking will one day turn into a profession for her. She has not done any hotel management course and rather was doing English Honours from Hindu College. A self-taught baker with no formal training but just endless passion and love for baking kept her going. She started her page “Bake My Day” just to showcase her work and not for any monetary gains. This was suggested by one of her very close friend. After working on her own she realised, that she doesn’t want to stop here but would wish to grow more and test her skills. That’s when she joined The Academy of Pastry Arts in Gurugram to gain more in-depth knowledge and skills for pastry. She has been an intern with hotels and bakeries to gain experience and knowledge. That is the reason she works so efficiently on her own brand taking “Bake my Day” all together to another level.
I happened to try a few things made by her. She has few specialities which makes her unique. Let’s start with the bakery items she shared with me.
She sent me a beautiful Rakhi Hamper on the Rakhi Days. This whole hamper can be customised as per your recommendations or the items inside the hamper can be ordered separately as well.
The list of the items in the hamper are as follows: –
#1. A box of “Chocolate Fudge Brownies”- Brownies are something everyone loves to eat and not everyone can make it on point. Fudge Brownies are her speciality. The conditions of having this brownie is just that you need to heat it first before you have it. The best thing about these brownies is that you can refrigerate it for a week or so, they’ll be as fresh as before. These brownies can be customized in various flavours such as: –
- Chocolate Fudge
- Chocolate Walnut
- Red velvet
There are many combinations in these brownies. You wish you can customise it as per your requirements.
#2. A jar of “Mini Macaroons” – Macaroons are the toughest to be baked. But she made it so efficiently as if it’s the easiest thing to do. She is exclusive in Macaroons in North Delhi. I haven’t heard a baker in North Delhi making Macaroons. These Macaroons can be of normal size as well, totally depending upon your preference.
The Regular Flavours are: –
- Chocolate Caramel
Customised Flavours are: –
- Strawberry (This is seasonal)
- Jack Daniels
This also totally depends on your preference. You can get it customised as you like.
#3. A box of “Cake sickles” – I found Cake sickles to be all over a new concept of gifting someone an ice cream shaped cake with beautiful crafting on it. To remove the myths from everyone’s, mind that these cake sickles are not coated with fondant rather it is coated with pure chocolate. This chocolate coating can be customised in various flavours according to your requirements. The cake sickles has a proper cake filling in it which can be in different flavours such as: –
- Vanilla Blueberry
Again, this can be customised in your favourite flavours as per your wish.
#4. A jar of Cookies- Cookies are something even adults love to eat. It can be eaten raw or with tea or coffee. They can be carried and even children love it. She makes some amazing cookies with different flavours. The best thing about her is that she has kept in mind about the diet conscious people and used an ingredient which people on diet can also have it easily. The flavours are follows: –
- Red Velvet Crinkle
- Nutella Chocolate Chip
Order your favourite flavour cookie and enjoy your tea time every day.
These were the items I received in the hamper. But there are even more exquisite items which will blow your mind off.
#5. “Customised Cakes”
Whether its your first birthday or your first anniversary or your 100th birthday you need a cake which is as beautiful as you. Bake my Day has always done justice when it comes to making cakes. You tell the design and the cake will be better than you even thought off. There are two lists of flavours: –
|PREMIUM||ALL- TIME FAVOURITES|
|Beer Chocolate||Chocolate Truffle|
|Baileys Tiramisu||Chocolate Hazelnut|
|Japanese Cotton soft Cheesecake||Vanilla Almond|
|Blueberry Cheesecake||Fruit Heaven|
|Chocolate Strawberry Mousse Cake||Butter Scotch Caramel|
All the flavours are equally good. The Premium flavours are different from the usual flavours. She has amazing concepts of cakes. So, make your loved one’s day a special one with a scrumptious cake from Bake my Day.
#6. “Cup Cakes”
Cupcakes are as cute as a child and children love them the most. These cupcakes are the best return gifts on a birthday party. How to make a cupcake fascinating and delish is something Bake my Day knows to do it effortlessly. As every other item even Cup Cakes have flavours you can choose from. They are as follows: –
- Creamy Red Velvet
- Chocolate Addiction
- Caramel Popcorn
- Chocolate Hazelnut
- Chocolate Nutella
You can order them separately or in a pair with as many flavours you like. Like every other thing this is also customisable according to your preference.
For all the people who are fond of Mousse, they also need not worry. Bake my day even has various flavours of mousse to satisfy their taste buds. There are only 2 types of flavours in Mousse cups. They are as follows: –
- Toffee Banoffee
- Hazelnut Madness
#7. “Cake Jars”
Cake Jars have been quite trending these days and it is actually very durable and easy to gift someone. Its very neat tidy to have it. It’s a perfect return gifts for children or on baby shower parties. There flavours in cake jars as well. They are as follows: –
- Berrylicious / Blueberry Cheesecake
- Chocolate American Fudge
- Red Velvet
These jars are hot selling products and definitely different from mainstream cakes and cupcakes. Rather you get a full jar of cake, which is edible for a week or so if you refrigerate it.
#8. Travel Cakes
When you travel, its not easy to carry food items. Some food items stink if packed for a longer period of time. Most of the times cakes are a good option to carry and are very filling. Also, now a days everyone is bored of having Britannia cakes and need some different flavours. So, when you pack your stuff for travelling, book you travel cakes as well in advance so that you don’t starve and enjoy your holiday. There is a Marble cake and a Vanilla cake which is super yummy and easy to carry. They are actually dry cakes so they are quite durable.
The best thing about this bakery is that all these items are homemade and can be customised with your choice of preference. She even has options of “Egg” and “Eggless” items depending on the customers choice. Also, you don’t need to specially go to a bakery or any outlet to book your order. Just choose your favourite flavour and the design you like, call her or message her or check her profile on Instagram and Direct Message her over there and you have it on your door step. It’s that simple and convenient.
There is something Mehak Gulati the Baker itself quoted which id like to share- “With Bake My Day, I just wish to provide my clients with the best of quality products and bake their days Happy! Its not just a business for me, it’s the love that I wish to spread in the ‘sweetest’ way possible.”
