Mawa Cake

Cake brings a smile to every child’s face.People of all ages tend to melt on its sight.You might see a child awaken in them.A fresh baked one has a wonderful aroma. Mawa cake is the best when you want a fresh start of the day.


Childhood nostalgia

This is also a beautiful memory of my childhood in Vizag.

I have spent many evenings having mawa cup cakes.

Freshly delivered by a man who would travel from a local bakery every evening.This guy came all the way on a cycle with fresh goodies on both sides in a basket.There was fresh bread,buns,cake,muffins and biscuits.Basically a delight for all kids.I still remember his cream bun.White bun shaped like a hot dog filled with fresh cream and a hint of strawberry jam.Thus getting a sweet pink hue in the middle.Life was simpler back then.Local bakers fulfilled our desire of tea time snacks occasionally.Who knew any restaurant brands existed too? Local was good enough!

His sight till date brings a smile to my face whenever I visit my hometown.
