Cocopedia Bakes

"When I used to see my mother or anyone around me bake, I was fascinated by it and always wanted to try. So, when I was old enough to experiment with flour I started doing that. I used to make cookies and cakes of different shapes with different styles and give them to my family members to taste. This later helped me to hone my baking skills and people started relying on me for their bakery needs. Eventually, these were the people who also pushed me to take this up professionally. During the lockdown, I took online baking classes that left me with a whole lot of practice cakes with no one to feed. So, sent them out as charity and received a good response for my skills as a baker.I named my bakery after my aunt's dog, who has brought a lot of happiness to our lives. By, May I was already starting my business professionally and within a week of starting I was breaking even with my investment. The venture took off good and slowly the bigger orders flowed in. As, a home-baker, I believe that the pandemic has made everything customer friendly, I could get everything delivered to my doorstep with just one call on this number +91 97487 09953 cocopedia_bakes. The pandemic in more ways than recorded has proven to be a blessing in disguise for me.Gradually I took steps forward by creating a website and putting my bakery on google maps. I did not have a proper mentor to guide me through this business journey and I am proud to say that I am self-made. My mother has supported me throughout and even invested the initial capital for the venture. I have had friends and family who also supported me very much but at the end of the day, it was I who kept hustling come what may. To this day I have delivered 90 orders since starting a month and a half back. I still have a long way to go with this and I am determined to do that.”
