The Cupcake Factory – Prity S. Pujari
Prity S. Pujari, a much loved home baker based in Hyderabad. For her, baking happened by chance, when she participated in a food contest.
The appreciation she got from people motivated her to start her own venture. And thus “The Cupcake Factory” came into existence. Anything that comes out of an oven – you name it and get it at The Cupcake Factory.
Theme cakes, custom cakes, cupcakes, dessert table, goodie bag etc. are some of the specialties. Yummy, home baked and oven fresh cakes are delivered at the doorstep by The Cupcake Factory.
Prity recalls her early days of baking when she got an order for an engagement cake. The client wanted her to recreate the moment he and his fiancée met and she was supposed to deliver all by herself.
It so happened that there was a strike and she ended up taking the huge 10 kgs cake in an auto-rickshaw.
The bumpy ride had a very bad effect on her cake as some elements started breaking off. However, she is thankful to her client who was more than understanding but that moment shook her and she swore never to bake again.
When the bride to be saw the cake, she got so emotional seeing the moment that was created on the cake that tears started rolling down her cheeks.
She appreciated and thanked Prity a lot for recreating such a special moment of hers. Such moments keeps Prity going despite the challenges.
Prity keeps herself organized so as to balance her work and home. She tries to get things ready whenever she is free. Prity has baked for few stars in the past.
Telugu movie star, Ravali, is one of her clients. Her success mantra,” The only mantra I know is to believe in myself and keep going, no matter what.
Difficult times pull you back but sometimes it gives you time to re-evaluate your priorities and sometimes it gives you time to bounce back.” Her advise to people who dream of making it big ,”No dream is too big to follow.
Dreaming is the start of making it happen. So keep dreaming and good luck.”
