You'll love Hyderabad home baker Namrata Sultania's bite-sized cupcakes. Here's why
Hyderabad's Namrata Sultania has hit a home run with her mini cupcakes that are available in three flavours — chocolate, vanilla and red velvet. The ganache is either white chocolate or dark chocolate
My complaint with cupcakes has always been that they are too sugary. And because of that, I can't eat more than one or try too many other flavours, unless I want to sign up for a sugar rush. And I am sure that many other not-so-sweet tooths feel the same way. Well, Namrata Sultania certainly did and so did her friends and that motivated her to put her love for baking to good use. She uses couverture chocolate (high-quality chocolate with more cocoa) in her cupcakes, even for the ganache and makes the cupcakes bite-sized — sounds like perfection. "This makes for a perfect balance between sweet and decadent," says Namrata.

And this is not all. "I don't want my cupcakes to be eaten only on some occasion, I would like for them to be a way people treat themselves. The cost of the cupcakes enables this," explains the 24-year-old. And we reckon the size does too. Namrata has always been a baker and it was upon the insistence of friends and family that she launched Chérie Cupcake just a month ago. This self-taught baker's cupcakes sell like hot cakes during fairs and flea markets. While she sells brownies as well, she wants to focus on two hit dishes as of now — mini cupcakes and cupcakes with floral designs on them. "I want Chérie to be known for one thing only — mini cupcakes," says Namrata, who believes that fondant ruins everything.

She delivers the order herself if it requires her to travel within Somajiguda (where she is based) and uses Dunzo, the company that offers delivery services, for the rest of Hyderabad. "I am looking to start a pick-up point so that I can reach out to more people," she informs. Currently, Namrata bakes out of her own home but is looking to rent a place. "I launched the floral cupcakes first and then the minis, so it's a learning process for me," says the baker who is ready to learn more and enchant the city with her cute, little mini cupcakes.
