Success Story of Kinjal Shah, home based baker



Hello all,

Last week, we met Usha R. Poornima, who is a successful entrepreneur who is doing reselling business. We have Kinjal Shah this week who is a home based entrepreneur based in Chennai. She has shared her journey of her business. Read on to know more about her.

Tell us a little about you:

 I am Kinjal Shah, a home baker/ entrepreneur/ choreographer based in Chennai.  My passionate desire towards baking and dancing helped me pursue both.

My plans were never to get into the  business field. I somehow got hooked to baking , so in this process Cake a Lishious was formed.

Tell a little about your business:

Because of my profound curiosity towards baking, I experimented with different recipes for which my lab rats (just joking) are friends and family. The positive feedback which I got moulded my pursuit into my profession.

Youtube became my go to guide for baking. After months of trial and error, my first batch of cupcakes went out to a corporate company , through a friend which inspired me to become an entrepreneur and establish my company Cake a Lishious. Its been two and a half years since then and its reaching new heights everyday.


Tell us about the earning potential in your baking business: 


Baking vegetarian desserts is always a challenging task which requires constant value added creativity and the amount of time and money involved in the process varies.

Simple rule to earn is better the quality and client servicing , the more money you earn irrespective the season.


Turning point in your business?

There hasn’t been one turning point, there have been many. But the one I would really like to mention is my first exhibition in 2016 which made me realize that make the customer the hero of your story. Apart from that, bulk orders and increasing regular customers have been my turning point.

Completing every year successfully is a milestone and also winning a second prize at a baking competition was definitely unexpected.



Tell us about the difficulties you faced and how you recovered?

Difficult time is a part of every business. The constant juggling between baking and choreography is a difficult task along with managing multiple orders and coordinating with customers who need readily available baked products, so i make sure I balance both.


Top 5 Lessons you have learnt from your business:

 ·         Do not compromise in the quality and output of the product.

·         Your setbacks are the opportunity to grow.

·         Consistently work to improve customer satisfaction.

·         Learn from your competition.

·         Importance of time management.


How are you balancing your work and personal life?


I make it a point to prepare my schedule and stick to it, to spend enough time with friends and family, but also stay committed to my work.

Your future plans:


My next big step is to provide my service to more people out there and make their special days even more special and hopefully one day I could open my own bakery outlet and grow even bigger.
