The trends are changing and we are moving back to our roots, that is, homemade desserts. There was a time when we would dine out to soothe our sweet tooth but now, we simply go to a food forum, type dessert and find the best in town. Although food is never associated with any gender who cooks the best, we found some incredible women bakers that have been in the dessert making for a while now and you have to agree with our choice while the bring something delicious every time they put their oven mitts on. 

Here are the 4 power-packed women that are bringing the best sweets to complement your sham ki chai and coffee.

Devine Appetite

This lady Anam Malik knows how to attract customers with her yummy chocolate bars, appetizing caramel crunch cake, moist chocolate fudge cake and many more. You name it and she will make them for you. It was a treat to try her divine desserts just like the name of her bakery. Not only this, she will treat you with customized chocolates wrapped in your pictures printed on it.

Jaweria Usman’s lotus cheesecakes are pure heaven. We don’t remember any restaurant in Lahore that served as good stuff as she makes. Even after being pogged, you will still not feel enough. Made with love and rich in cheese, she has a solution to your bad mood. Ranging from dipped in chocolate to covered with raspberry buttercream; she has got you covered.

The Meetha Cravings Co.

Bushra knows her way quite well. Her chocolate and the cream-filled jar is a great way to brighten your day. Book her for any event and she will not disappoint you. We ordered her chocolate jar which had a moist cake topped with melted caramel. The texture and taste were totally on point. Do not forget to try her yummy chocolate chip cookies whenever you order her chocolate jar.
