Homemade by Roshan

Roshan is a home-based baker with spectacular cakes, desserts, and sweets. I featured some of her cakes last year. And I have since ordered her chocolate cupcakes (photographed above and below, delicious and fairly priced!) and have tasted several of her other baked goodies. In the past, her contact details were often difficult to find, she didn’t even put them on her boxes when you got a cake from her. But finally, she has listened to her friends and regular customers and has now put a list of her products on the net, complete with beautiful photos, some of them by Lori of Dessertcomesfirst.com. Here is the link. Check out her Christmas hampers and other nicely packaged goodies. But be warned, her site has hoilday music which you may not want to play if you are surfing from an office environment. At any rate, get your orders in early as the holiday months are CRAZED for all home bakers, I gather. And no, I am not related to Roshan at all… I usually bake most of my own stuff, but for some of those occasions when I need something new, or crave something I can’t or don’t want to bake, Roshan is one of the nice folks I call… After all, with this priceless quote she once relayed to me, how can I not?? — “I don’t bake if I am in a bad mood, it affects the finished product…” I have said something similar in one of my posts on baking, and I completely agree… :)

    Last holiday season, we ordered several of Roshan’s creations for Christmas and New Year’s Eve meals. They were all delicious, and I am hoping to eat them again soon. And the best thing is, she’s such a sweetheart! :-)

    I order from Roshan regularly. I’m obsessed with her Ghirardelli Chocolate Chip cookies and Food for the Gods. If I need feel-good food, I can always count on her to whip up something wonderful.

    The piped icing is nicely done – takes a lot of practice to come up with uniform piped icing with no gap in between.

    Me too MM! I live by the same quote/motto…“I don’t bake (well, for me, it’s cook) if I am in a bad mood, it affects the finished product…”…it truly does. I totally agree that whatever emotion you are feeling, it comes out in your food…at least that’s one thing I have in common with Roshan.

    Posts like this make me want to visit the Phillipines again. Since my first visit comprised two overnight stays in Manila on the way to and from Vietnam, actually seeing some of what the country offers would be a new experience. Now to convince my husband.

    P.S. I know you have nothing to do with the site, but music on websites (other than iTunes) really irritates me!

    I checked the site and the brownies look so yummy. Do they deliver? Or the baked goodies are for pick-up only?

    Sheryl, best to check with Roshan, but I think they only do pick-ups.

    Oh my goodness! Where is she hosted? Bandwidth exceeded already! Do you have a copy of the PDF file of her price list, Marketman? I should have downloaded it the first time I went to her website, now it’s inaccessible. :(

    Thanks for the info, nonetheless!
