I am Manjula Dinakaran, 55 years old, homemaker grandmom of 4 grandchildren. I started baking healthy foods for my grandchildren. They were my first critics. When they enjoyed my baking, I explored homemade chocolates and attended a lot of workshops. My week will be filled with baking ideas. My first big batch was for Diwali in 2021. I started receiving good reviews from friends and family. Slowly started having small orders by word of mouth... and we started out with our brand, M- Made with Love. We received our FSSAI certificate a few months ago, and now I am working on orders for family and friends' special occasions! The Alippo course is helpful for me to learn how baking can be done professionally and what the process is for establishing my brand. For all women, age is no barrier; follow your passion and interests; even one small baby step at a time is enough towards your journey of happiness.

My name is Nita Saigal, and I’m from Mumbai. I always had a passion for cooking, and my dishes were always, etc. appreciated byIn thell. In 2000,r 2000 I started a small business of making snacks & theming them at shops where people buy them to buy as early morning breakfast. My brother had a centre, Centre said, why don't you don't join us and start the meals? That, that's how I entered into catering. I would cater lunch n snacks to around 300 students. I always handled everything personally & never left it on staff 2005,n 2005 I stopped the business then, my daughter, and I set up suitcases and started packing for exhibitions in Mumbai Pune, Pune, and Hyderabad. Coimbatore till 2011, then took a break and entered the business of trading parlour and salon products, ayurvedic products, and khadi products. I started selling all over Maharashtra with a team of salesmen. And also on Amazon and Flipkart. But during the lockdown, there wasn't much work, and I stopped these portals, but I am still doing the cosmetics and Khadi trading. During the lockdown, since my cook was not there, I got time to peep into YouTube channels and started trying recipes. One that put me into business again was cookies and nankhatai. My daughter wanted me to start selling instead of just distributing. And with this, we came up with our brand HOMEBAKEOLOGY in 2021. In this one year, I had been learning from YouTube only, and one fine day I saw the Alippo ad on Facebook and joined my first course in Fusion Baking. This method of learning piqued my interest, and I enrolled in a slew of Allipo courses, including this professional baking course. I realised what learning with perfection is and how it has improved my skills. especially in baking, which was always a dream. because I was never able to succeed in baking. So now with all these learnings and the help of the perfect teachers, Alippo team, and platform, I think I will be able to prove to myself first and then to others that there is no age for learning first and that I can do what I dreamed of. Thanks to Alippo and the team for inspiring so much confidence in me to at least move ahead with fulfilling my dream of baking and cooking.

My name is Riddhi Rajput, owner and founder of the Vinayak Cake House. I love baking. Baking is my passion. I love to experiment with new things in baking. I started this Vinayak cake house in 2020. First, I started making assorted chocolates and selling them in my papa's shop. Then I gradually began making cakes for relatives, family, and friends because I enjoy doing so and eventually became proficient. I learned so much from the alpist. Thank you so much, Alipo. Now I've started working professionally in this field and am learning a lot.
Professionally, I am a teacher who pursued her passion for baking after retirement. Since I got introduced to the Alippo Learning Centre for multiple courses, I’ve not had a full week, having enrolled in several of the programmes. The courses have helped me stay motivated through the learning process, and my Alippo journey has been over a year now. Ever since I started attending the Alippo workshops, there has been no looking back. The courses have helped me learn several new things and boost my confidence. I started my own home-baking brand, Viva Santana, initially starting off with tea cakes and now gradually moving into other different types of cakes. I am still learning new techniques from Alippo towards becoming a baking entrepreneur, and I am sure there’s so much more to look forward to!
I'm based in Mumbai and started my journey in the cake industry. I started to bake for family and friends, then explored and pursued my interest in baking through Sugar Twist—it was indeed a great journey. I know the COVID period was really difficult for everyone, but this period has given me a new way of living. I just wanted to come over my frustration, so I decided to do something with my whole heart and saw a few videos of baking, so I thought, let me just give it a try. I started baking after watching videos on Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube, and slowly started baking for myself, then for friends, and then I started taking small orders from my friends. I started with customization cakes, as everyone wanted them as per their mindset, so I took the challenge and moved forward, and I started getting appreciation from my customers. The professional course helped me take my business to another level. I learned little things that will really push me to gain more business. With all my family's support, I am doing it. I am a mother and a housewife, and I am also into baking cakes and pastries, but trust me, time management helps me to do it. I highly recommend the Alippo course, which helped me to take my business to another level! I am grateful.
I'm a baker by passion and an entrepreneur by profession. Cooking has always been very therapeutic for me, and I have the added benefit of a family that is open to trying new things. In the year 2001, I joined my husband in his business; we have a marketing agency based out of Ahmedabad. I have always loved cooking and baking for people, and once during the COVID-19 pandemic, a friend of mine asked me to bake a cake for her, and the response that I got was truly unbelievable. Which got me thinking: why not experiment more with desserts and start a business out of it? Hence the birth of Magic Whisk. In this journey of mine, the Alippo team has helped a lot, be it in the form of useful insights from the chef or lectures.
