Home baker/chef, Charu Agarwal has slowly but steadily captured the hearts of Gurgaon’s foodies with her elaborate fruit cakes, melt-in-the-mouth kebabs and budget-friendly cheesecakes.

Let Them Have A Cake

And lots of it! Delicacies, run by Gurgaon resident Charu, is your last-minute cake hero because she only needs 24 hours to whip up the most delicious fruit cakes, cheesecakes and mousse cakes. Don’t expect these to be simple just because they’re made at home – fondant work, perfectly piped roses as well as pictures, Charu can do it all!

The cheesecakes start at INR 800 {per kg} and, apart from the Bailey’s Irish, we’d highly recommend the Lemon or Orange because citrus pairs perfectly with summer.

Planning A Party?

Delicacies also has a food menu and Charu is happy to send across delicious appetisers, mains {Continental and Indian} as well as street food {Palak Patta Chaat, we see you!} for your next big do, but this isn’t a typical catering service. Send her your dabbas and she’ll fill them with yummy food that will make sure everyone at your party comes back for seconds and thirds.

Anything Else?

A chef with many hats, Charu organises cooking and baking classes from time to time, within Gurgaon. Check Delicacies’ Facebook page for details about upcoming workshops – she’s conducting an eggless baking workshop on May 19 and May 20. Sign up to learn how to bake a brookie {a cookie-turned-brownie} – the workshop is open to both kids {seven years and older} and grown-ups.
