Has anyone ever complimented you, "Your cakes are so beautiful...where do you get them from?" Or you have entered a shop and wondered at the beautiful cakes around you. Or maybe you've been to a wedding, seen and tasted the cakes and thought, "I can do this!"


Well, we have come a long way from the time when cake was just a formality for any celebration. Now, it is a style statement with cake decoration playing an important part along with the taste of cake. With globalisation happening cakes in India have gone a sea change in terms of quality and design. Now, one can get what he wants provided he knows where to go for it.


Cake Decoration business is gaining momentum although it may not be everybody’s cup of tea. However, the process is still time consuming and intimidating. There are legal issues as well. Simple mistakes or trial and error cost you in time and money. Once your business is up and running you'll begin to achieve the things you're hoping for.

Bottom of form

In India, there are hundreds of cake shops those make and sell cakes. Here, the business idea is different from them. Cake decorating business owner is a person who himself is an expert in cake decorating and may run his business solely or in collaboration with cake shops. In the latter case, revenue generated can get shared between the cake shop owner and cake decorating business owner.



The skills
Expertise requires knowing all the nitty-gritties of cake making and decorating. So, a hotel management course or an experience of working with noted chefs will help.


The business is rewarding and satisfying too. One should come into this business if s/he feels the urge,” shares Abhishek Trehan of Celebration Cakes & Flowers.


How it was done
Manjit Trehan a retired professional was the man behind Celebration Cakes & Flowers. He started the cake decorating and making shop in the year 2009. Abhishek kumar, son of Trehen is the successor of the cake business who started his career in a domestic call center. At office parties he used to wonder how people get amazed by the beauty of decorating cakes. He worked on the idea of cake decorating business and started working with a friend who owned a cake shop. After some time he acquired the essential skill required to run a cake decorating and making business and joined his father’s business. Cake is the most important part of any party celebration and so they chose the name of their business as Celebration Cakes & Flowers.

Shop- 400 sq ft and above.

Investment - Rs 5-6 Lakh (the bread oven costs 3 lakhs and above)
