Devina Soni, 29, Baker, Chandigarh
How it Began Offering customised fondant cakes and cupcakes with different sugar decorations, D-liciouS has quite a following on Instagram and Facebook. Launched in 2010, it was the baby of Chandigarh girl Devina Soni who completed her MBA from Panjab University in 2010. She says, “I launched D-liciouS right after my college. We started doing chocolates for weddings and soon graduated to cakes within a year. After doing some part-time courses, I ventured fully into cakes, cupcakes and desserts.” Today D-liciouS specialises in fondant cakes for various occasions—right from the bridal shower to wedding invitations to the wedding cake.
Wedding Cakes D-liciouS gets maximum business from wedding orders. Their wedding cakes are usually inspired by the colour of the decor at the venue. Soni says, “Some clients want their engagement cakes to show their journey of love. Most wedding cakes are three-tiered, preferably white with red, golden and pink flowers with cute sparkly toppers.” Soni is mostly given a free hand by couples as they trust her aesthetic sense.
Then And Now This baker has definitely seen a series of changes over the years. Talking more about the rising demand of ‘simple yet elegant cakes’, she says, “People now want cakes which are low on sugar content. They prefer butter cream cakes with a rustic feel. Naked cakes with a vintage vibe are the in thing.”
