Gurgaon is home to a whole lot of a whole lot of cosmopolitan crowd and draws a lot of people from varied cultural backgrounds to work and live here. Naturally, in the past few years, there has been a world of change in the cultural framework of the society here. With the emergence of a large population of expats, the world around us has become more experimental and a lot more diverse.
Having said that, we cannot ignore the immediate upsurge in the number of home bakers that have initiated their business based on word of mouth and complete faith. These home bakers are ready to experiment with new ideas and tease the palate of their Indian clients. To do that, they often keep looking for paraphernalia that would assist them in delivering the best in class goods. Gurgaon has a lot of stores where the items of world standard are available to ensure that the end result of the final product is any less than world class.

They have cake courses for not just cake making, but designing, cake painting, figure modeling, cupcake moulding and decoration etc. Its is just brilliant how these people help in making a simple cake making formula into a piece of art.
