How would you like to convey your feelings to someone? Letters, emails, sms - all are passé. Gifts are probably 
what come to mind but think what if the gift itself was more personal than the message it conveyed. 
Think creative. Think out of the box. Think sweet. Think yummy and you are on the dot.


What I have got today is a treasure of cupcakes. Can you even imagine how many emotions can the tiny cupcake be packed with? Right from birthday wishes to get well soon to au revoir to marriage proposals – these cupcakes can express it all. What is more they can be customised for any occasion and for any person. 

The credit for making these gorgeous looking and yummy tasting cupcakes goes to Aamena Khan of Tuptakes. Though baking came naturally to Aamena courtesy her enthusiastic baking family, it was photography which she was inclined towards. She had put some pictures of her cupcakes on Facebook which attracted someone and she landed with her first order. After this fairy tale like beginning, there was no looking back and Tuptakes became her full time job. 

'God is in the details' said the German architect Mies Van der Rohe. 

And one look at these little cupcakes and you know what he must have meant. While customising the cupcakes, Aamena puts in an amazing amount of attention to details. The graphics, the colours, the fonts and the miniaturisation of certain items are all done to perfection resulting in an enviable piece of treasure   

These can be ordered online and delivered at your doorstep if you are residing in Delhi or its neighborhood!
