Tell us about yourself?
First of all, I am thankful to Roopali Kadam for featuring my interview. Myself Bijal Parikh and I live in AHMEDABAD, GUJARAT. I am married to doctor & mom of a sweet sixteen boy. I live in a joint family with my in-laws.
When and how did you start baking?
My son likes cakes and pastries, every fortnight I used to buy pastries and cakes for him. But once I brought pastry and there was a fly in it. It was a shocking incidence for us and this is when I decided to bake for him. Initially, it was lots of trial and errors baking sessions. And slowly I learnt baking all basic cakes. Then I concentrated on Icing part and honed it with practice. For designer cakes, I follow youtube many times and the final outcome turns out awesome.
What challenges you have faced in this journey?
Baking itself is challenging thing, Once while baking a chocolate ganache a disaster happened, cake broke into two halves. And the cake was ordered for the birthday party. Somehow I managed to stick the cake using icing and the party went on well. There are a couple of other incidences like this and I managed the situations.
Did your family help you in achieving your goals?
In my baking journey, my husband Amish helped me a lot. I got complete financial and moral support from all family members. And also I am thankful to all my clients as well.
What all products you provide?
I started baking like a professional in 2015, just 3 years in business. Along with baking cakes, I am a passionate food blogger and have a blog bijalzactivecooking @wordpress.com. I make chocolates as well and they are one of my hit products. I accept corporate offers as well.

How do you manage to give time to your family and your profession?
