Hong Kong is brimming with talent and what’s a yummier talent than the talent of baking, right? Home baking is the kind of job that’s purely passion driven. It’s kind of an art, really! Home bakers, more than anyone else understand that cakes are not just cakes. They are memories!
Just think about this for a minute, what’s the first thing we think of when we want to celebrate a loved ones’ birthday… What is the first image that comes to your mind? It’s that of the beautiful cake sitting pretty in the middle of all those balloons, isn’t it? Such occasions are special and to make them even more special, we need special cakes – made to perfection, just the way we like them! So, it’s always better to order your cakes from home-bakers instead of regular bakery shops because they put their heart and soul into these cakes besides the usual buttercream, fondant, etc. Here’s a list of some of the best home bakers we have in our gorgeous city, Hong Kong. Enjoy!
Now, that’s the kind of madness we like! Ankrish Gidwani and his mother established the Baking Maniac 11 years ago and thanks to their resolution to offer ‘nothing but the best’, today they have become one of the most successful bakers we have in the city.

And yes, eggless, vegan and gluten-free cakes are also a part of their offerings.
Note: Baking Maniac is licensed and operates from their own licensed kitchen.

Thus, she became the first baker in HK who started offering recipes free from gluten, refined sugar, eggs and dairy. She started using ingredients which are plant-based and diabetic-friendly. Today, her exclusive ‘Conscious Indulgence’ collection featuring a variety of healthy plant-based desserts is a sensational hit in the market.
