Every baker’s curiosity about learning the mixing spells of ingredients and the process of baking is what drives them to become one of the finest bakers.
Prerna Marathe, a simple girl, whose curiosity led her to dance with the ingredients and travel with the journey of baking, and try to become one of the finest bakers. Her interest in making cakes began when she didn’t even know that the term “baking” existed. Baking a Cake at home was a very deal during those days, that’s why she was completely astounded when she saw one of her neighbour baking a biscuit cake in a cooker, at the age of 9. She absolutely loved it and was quite fascinated.
A year later, she and her family shifted to a new city, where she started trying out new things, which were nowhere near to a cake. Her curiosity drove her to try more and more things. She had zero knowledge about the measurements, recipes, etc.; all she knew was that – you have to mix all the ingredients together and bake it! But that never discouraged her, or let her hopes break down. Eventually, she tracked down recipes on YouTube and started trying them out. It turned out to be an absolute disaster because everyone in the videos kept talking and sharing about the steps and methods; no one was explaining how the recipe was working. Later she found out that her number one mistake was that she just kept trying out the random recipes.
Soon in 2017, she opened her Instagram account for her desserts. It first started off with random creations, but then she really pushed herself to get out of her “comfort zone”. Now she has an Instagram Family of more than 18k members. Her curiosity for learning new things, made her wander through so many different types of desserts. All these years she never realized how much her failures have taught her.
She was in 11th grade when she decided to open her YouTube channel. That was the time when she became cognizant of the fact that she enjoyed making videos, and loved teaching and sharing her knowledge, and also helping out other bakers. And by keeping that purpose in heart, she fabricated an Online School to encourage other bakers to dive deep into the science of Baking, and help them upgrade their Baking game.
