Exquisite Niche is Back!

12 Jul

Firstly, sorry for abruptly leaving the blogging world for a while. Its been more than a year but trust me I really missed being connected to you all. Well, loads happened since then. I got pregnant,took a baby-moon trip, then had a baby and now looking after my 8 month son. Also, not to forget I started Exquisite Cakes & Bakes from home.  Time has flown for me.

I had stopped writing after I conceived and it became difficult for me to talk about food since I had sickness all the time. I thought of giving blogging  a break. During that break I was reading more about the phase I was passing by. It was amazing 9 months. It was beautiful to see a life evolve. Nine months were full of excitement, lots of caution and some anxiety. But to be honest, my husband had been a great support and very understanding. In that time, we also took a trip to Bali & Bangkok. Nowadays, everyone calls it a babymoon 😉 (hehe!). It was much needed and a refreshing trip.

Fun Trip!!

After a long wait of 9 months, our son was born on 2nd November 2012. We have named him, Trimaan (meaning a person who is respected  in all three worlds). Everyday is a new day and I enjoy more and more with my son. Things have changed for me after becoming a ‘mother’. Earlier it was more of ME & My Husband, but now everything we do, first we think of MY BABY. Its been a fun-filled motherhood, and emotionally overwhelming.

While I was expecting, I started something that I really wanted to do. I wanted to do something more with food. So besides blogging, I have started to sell designer cakes and enjoy every bit of it. Exquisite Cakes & Bakes is something really special and close to my heart. Baking is passion for me and something that I can do even when I am really tired. Its soo therapeutic. Watching Fabulous Cakes has always pushed me to learn and make fondant cakes, so that I can try my creativity on them. Baking cakes has been fun but to make them creative and according to someone’s taste and occasion requirement is more endearing. This is what has been  important to me, that my creativity could be a part of someone’s most special occasion (and be appreciated).

Valentine’s Treat!!

15 Feb

I truly believe in the fact that ‘EVERYDAY’ is ‘SPECIAL’ with your loved ones and you do not need a particular day to celebrate it. But somehow, when I look around in the month of February around the malls and shops, I see everything in red. Everything is so beautifully decorated. In a way it is mesmerizing. It definitely does bring out the romantic mood. Actually all this truly epitomizes that Love is in the Air’.

All this overwhelms me and soul inside me compels me to buy gifts and flowers all the time. So somehow, February is a month of  romance with lots of cupid goodies to make and eat around. So I did make a delicious Cupid Strawberry Delight for the occasion which you must try. Donot forget to vote for it on Food Frenzy!! Click Here.

So this Valentine Day was actually a working day. We did exchange wonderful bouquet of flowers and gifts. I just love getting gifts whatever the occasion may be!

JS actually made me realise that in our 3 years of relationship I hadn’t got flowers for him ever. It was actually true! He has always gifted me some amazing bouquets like really big heart-shaped ones. I still remember the first bouquet that he got for me (unfortunately don’t have a picture!). It was about 3 1/2 ft tall and filled with red roses! It was absolutely AMAZING!! (You would know now why I adore him so much). So it was my turn now! I did get flowers for him this time and also, baked a flowery strawberry cake for him!! (He loved it!…) . I guess, it has now covered up for the past years 😉

We usually plan our dinner ahead of time but due to some circumstances we could not do it yesterday. So most of the places were booked already. But we finally got a place at the most popular Italian joint in Delhi, Big Chill Cafe. It is certainly one of our favourites! Their grills, bakes, ice creams and desserts are just to-die for. After the most heavy and cheesy dinner, we had their speciality i.e Missisipi Mud Pie and Banofee Pie. Yum Yum Yum, I can still recall the flavors as I write.

My sister in-law and her husband joined us for dinner. It was a fun evening together with lots of jokes and gossips of the tinsel town!! Hehe! It was truly a fun evening together! Wishing more merrier times ahead!:)

Sharing Good Times Together!!

Wishing all my reader’s a Happy Valentine Day!!

Thanks for showering love on my blog!
