The Baking Tray

Rebecca Vaz’s comfort cupcakes draw inspiration from the women in her life -- grandma, mum and an old lady down the street who shared her prized baking recipes. The five years she spent as a flight attendant allowed her to roam the world in pursuit of cake, giving her enough "research material" to go full time on frosting in April 2009. "Try the Mr Lava Lava Cupcake," suggests Vaz, promising that their chocolate-filled centres will more than make up for the corny name.

Pallavi’s love affair with baking began at age nine, when her dad bought her her first gas oven. She has traveled a long way since then, leaving her hometown in Assam for Delhi, Kolkata, New York and now Mumbai, earning a Master’s degree in Economics and working in corporate communications and advertising. Her passion for dessert travelled and stayed with her though. Earlier this year she decided to pursue it full time. The result? Moist and delicious chocolate cupcakes, decorated with a smattering of kiddy stars.

Cupcakes & Co

The newest bakers riding the cupcake tide are Namrata Narang and Sangeeta Kulkarni, who plan to make the cupcake as ubiquitous as doughnuts with their soon-to-be-launched outlets. For now, they home deliver. Their USP: elaborately frosted cupcakes, adorned with everything from lush sugar bouquets to tubby pandas. Pretty OTT on design but they taste great.
