When I was younger, playing with measuring cups and making Play Doh Rotis with rolling pins was what I did to pass time.

I spent most of my free time watching cookery shows on tv and reading cookbooks since a very young age. Hi, my name is Elisha Parikh and I am
a 18-year-old baker, who is better known as ‘Elithebaker.’

My journey towards becoming an accomplished baker began at age 7 and I am still striving to get better and learn new techniques. Over the years, I have learnt how to bake several delicious desserts and confections, like layered cakes, macarons, cheesecakes and choux pastry. My desserts range from uniquely personalised cakes to classic French pastries, and I’m never afraid to try something new. Till date I have catered over 300+ orders – a number large enough to be done single-handedly by myself along with balancing academics.

All my proceeds are donated to charity, since there’s no better way of spreading smiles on faces than through desserts.

I am also a part of HelpOut, an organisation that strives to improve the lifestyle of the young kids living in Ladiwali, Karjat. I conduct bake sales at events organized by Helpout, to help raise funds throughout the year to support the needs of the underprivileged children. This has brought many smiles all around, not only to the students and their families but also the local kirana stores in Karjat which have received much needed boost in these difficult times.

but everyone can help someone.”

In March of 2022, Cakeify supported kids undergoing treatment for paediatric cancer at the Tata Memorial Hospital by selling their classic cake mixes at the Helping Hands Foundation exhibition.

COVID 19 essentials

In the months of December-January 2021, I raised
funds through various tea cake and cookie sales, all of which have been used to raise funds for masks, sanitizers, and fans for hospitals in the outskirts of Mumbai that were ill-equipped to battle COVID19.

Cupcakes for a cause

I cannot begin to express the immense gratitude
that I have for our frontline workers, who have have been putting their lives at risk for our safety for the entirety of the COVID 19 pandemic. In June of 2021, I partnered up with ‘Food for Frontline’, and baked 150 cupcakes to bring some smiles to the doctors at KEM hospital here in Mumbai.

Elithebaker x The Untitled Project

After hosting a bake sale for brookie boxes in June of 2021, all proceeds were donated towards Goonj, an NGO that works consistently for the dignity, well-being and development of rural India for over 2 decades across infrastructure, education and sanitation.
