About Me

Welcome to my small little world of sweet treats. Passionate about baking cakes, cupcakes, truffles and eating them too! Having being exposed to such wonderful home-made treats from a very young age, I hope to bring across my passion and love for baking and creating new recipes through this site. All in all, this will focus on fun as well as healthy baking, decorating and everything else creative (could include my love for painting/sketching as well, so I could divert a little from my blog's title :)). Thanks for visiting!

My fondant creations...

After months of practice in creating fondant figurines, I finally feel that the hard work is beginning to pay off (ofcourse it helps to be a little creative too)!! Thankfully, I had some luck making Dora's friends - boots and map. For those of you who don't have kids, don't worry you'll get there..I mean you'll know what I'm talking about in another coupla years. Or if you are somewhat like me then you can watch it 'on demand'...but yes, you'll have to be a different personality type ;)

Here are some pictures of the figurines that I created...after spending 4 hrs while simultaneously watching the Jets vs Patriots game this past Sunday. With all due respect to my Boston pals, friends whom I feel bad for, hopefully the pictures below will cheer you up. Friends, do let me know if it helped! I might use the same trick to cheer up my fellow peeps on the superbowl weekend ;)!! Maybe make some Jets cupcakes!!

Anyway, this is what I have as of now. Stay tuned for some more creations this coming weekend.

I made some homemade marshmallow fondant and mixed it up with Wilton Pure White Rolled Fondant, 1-Pound 8-Ounce. If you've ever watched Ace of Cakes on food network, the cakes they make are always covered with fondant (almost all the time)...in case you're wondering what fondant is and what these figurines are made of. Enjoy!

Just wanted to share the mess that I made!!


  1. Love it Chitra!!! .......they look so real....i'm sure you are having fun while doing this but thank you for the hard work....waiting to see how the final Dora cake will look like!!! keep baking :-)

  2. Awesome stuff babes...Very proud of u...:)
    Now,curious to see how the whole cake turns out, I am sure it will be super awesome and we shall do a good job of transporting it to Boston..(wink)...Cheers to sleepless nights..haha

  3. Thanks gals for the comment and for posting a comment! ;) But thanks for the encouragement!

  4. Even the Monkey and the Map were shocked with that nights results. Apt expressions considering the results of the game... Some more sorrow and hopefully a more Joy comin Boston and NY's way respectively in the next 3 weeks. JETS cupcakes is a good idea espically if we can have the boston peeps look forward to something on the SuperBowl weekend... On the whole. Good job and go J-E-T-S.......

  5. U r doing a great work cheena... keep it going... if my daughter sees u am sure she will love u more ... :)
