About Me

My photo
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!

Baked by Chitra is on the foodieblogroll!

  Finally after a few weeks worth of wait time, my blog has made it on the foodieblogroll. It's great to be a part of a blogroll with 10,000 members. Not to underestimate the challenge that it brings with itself...you've got to stand out and prove yourself. A little bit about what I've been thinking lately - I need to expand my horizons and add in other forms of cooking that might have inspired me to share it with friends. It's also great (I believe so!) to share dining experiences. In the past I have done so by talking about a bakery...only one so far! So you'll see a lot more happening on this blog but it's still going to predominantly remain a baking blog. Are you wondering by now that why am I telling you all this and why do you care...I am! My reply to that would be that you care (Awwww!!), which is why you're reading this at the first place (thank you!).

Anyway, for the curious souls, please do check out my blog and other that may interest you by clicking the link below:


Also,  just wanted to spread the word to help grow the network at foodieblogroll. You could be one of the few lucky ones to win a tote bag! Please see below for more details.

  1. Hi there Chitra!

    My name is Steve Walters and I recently started blogging at http://www.eatingbangkok.com, which is currently being updated with recipes, but in the next few months will be my vehicle for covering the food and restaurant scene in Bangkok Thailand.

    I am now in the process of meeting as many food bloggers as I can and I found your site http://sweettreatsbychitra.blogspot.com recently and was pretty impressed. I've added your site to my Foodie Blogs list here: http://www.eatingbangkok.com/foodie-blogs/ and would also like to add you to my blogroll.

    If you could add my site to your blogroll and write back to let me know it has been added (foodie [at] eatingbangkok.com) I will add you to mine as well and the exchange would be greatly appreciated!

    As you might imagine I am very excited to get moved to Bangkok and get started on covering the food scene there as I feel it is an area that isn't well covered by English speaking bloggers. I plan on adding loads of great reviews, pictures and even video and will be holding contests as well. It should be fun, entertaining and informative for everyone that visits.

    Thank you so much in advance for adding me to your blogroll and I look forward to reading your posts (I've subscribed!) and maybe even featuring some of your own posts as I do plan on a weekly roundup of Thai themed recipes and posts from other food bloggers.

    Warm regards,

    P.S. If you are on Twitter I would love to have you as a follower and I follow back:

  2. Hi Steve -

    Thanks for stopping by and enjoying my blog! I did go through yours and find it equally impressive. I would love to add you to my blog roll, but what is the html script that I need to add on the right? I am wondering because I would like for you to add my blog onto yours as well.

    Thanks -
