I bet you will want to keep them as decor pieces – and guess what – you won’t be worried about your toddler picking it up and eating it!

“When you have a few cake formulas and filling ideas in your repertoire, you will find that it’s pretty much an assembly job – you can mix and match a different way every time,” said Julia Child.
A visit to this home baker’s den made me realise the point Julia was trying to make in her statement.
Prajakta Shah started Sumira Cookies, 2 years ago, after her return from England. Although baking is her passion, she never really planned on being a home baker. A friend of hers asked her to bake a batch and insisted on paying – soon after she started getting orders – her two tiny tots encouraged her and she named it after them. Now, she experiments and serves out delicacies to her customers.
The aroma of freshly baked bread mesmerised my senses as soon as I stepped into her house. Her kitchen is her home bakery, highly organised, neat and clean. The best thing I liked about Sumira Cookies is she never ‘bakes and stores’ to sell. She bakes everything fresh according to the order. You can expect detailed customisation if you place an order with her. Her children taste each and every one of her item and also review the quality of the presentation. She makes sure the ingredients that she uses to bake are first-rate on the standards of health and hygiene. She selects and buys only the best quality items for her products so that it causes no harm to children or anyone with allergies.
I got to taste the wonderful whole wheat bread that she took out of the oven just in front of me. It made me wonder how can anything so healthy, be so delish! The bread was soft and had a crusty outer, covered with oats, flax seed and sesame. I also tried her cookies and chocolate cake, both baked to perfection.
If baking is an art, Prajakta masters that art along with the design and presentation of the cookies and cakes. When I looked at her samples, I for a minute just denied accepting that they are made out of hand! She bakes according to occasions as well. Her newest sample was for the International Woman’s Day. Her bakes make an ideal gifting item for the corporates as well. Once in a while she also conducts personalised baking classes for an individual to small batch sizes.
At Sumira Cookies you can order for decorated cookies, nutrition bars, theme based cakes, and other bakery products – all pure vegetarian.
All you need to do is give her the brief of your requirement and add special dietary and allergic conditions if any. What you will get is a piece of heaven to sink your teeth into!
