“I want someone to look at me the way I look at cakes.”


Welcome to Anjali’s BakeAffair!! Yes I call it that because this is my affair with baking and it all started when I was 13 years old. I stumbled upon cake making as a young schoolgirl and over the years, it has become my biggest source of joy (second only to my two beautiful children).

The Lights of my Life

I have come a long way from the day I baked my first cake and the journey has been gradual though steady, interspersed by all things mundane and big like education, friendships, heartaches and heartbreaks, job, marriage and children. But baking was a constant through every stage of my life… my stress-buster, my friend, my love, my passion and my forever mate. Being a self-taught baker, I tripped along the way often but kept getting back up.

This blog is not just a collection of recipes. I have tried to share what I know about it with sincerity here. It is also a place where I pen down my deepest feelings  and experiences now and then.

So let me take you through my journey sharing, along the way, the delicious joys of baking and some of my favorite creations.

I would love to hear from you either in the form of your comments on the posts or on email at anjali@anjalisbakeaffair.com

And as I always say, don your prettiest apron, grab your whisk, put on your favorite song and head right into the kitchen with a recipe of your choosing!!
