Safiha Alam is an adroit baker who received the Best Young Entrepreneur In Online Bakery awarded for her efforts in building a rewarding career in the domain. She received the award in the BENGAL PRIDE AWARD show that is hosted annually to put the most hardworking individuals of the state into the spotlight.

A lot of time goes into customizing a cake based on the occasion and the references of the person who ordered it. The reason behind the popularity of cakeobake is that we never replicate the same designs, and focus more on customization and presentation by combining fondant, and edible colors while maintaining the versatility of flavors.
