CHENNAI: Despite no formal background in baking, Rinky Kothari (27) has been running her own home-based baking company called Frost Goddess for a year. City Express catches up with her to know more about her journey into baking and how it crystallised into an enterprise.

A flight steward before she took up baking, Rinky shares her opinion on both these professions. “Baking needs a lot of hard work and patience. When you put in all of that, the rewards are good and it motivates you further. I didn’t get this job satisfaction when I was an air hostess,” she begins.

Rinky designs the cake herself according to the customer’s needs. “Designing is the toughest part. It requires a lot of creativity,” she says. “If you have the creative bentand the passion, you can make a wonderful career out of baking.”

So how does Rinky, a homemaker and a mother, manage all of it? “It’s all because of my family  — their support means everything to me. In 2011, I practised baking for fun and made cakes only for my family and friends. After three years, I began to scale up my baking work to include customers from outside my family circle. Since 2015, through word of mouth and social media, I now have a steady stream of customers,” she beams.

Frost Goddess will soon have a commercial outlet in the city. Rinky mastered this skill by reading and practising it on a small scale. For orders, call Rinky at 9176631031.
