Tarunima Sinha is a self taught baker. She is the founder and baker at the award winning baking business My Little Cake Tin.
Having only used the oven for the first time after moving to the UK from India in her 20’s, baking has became her obsession ever since. Researching, recreating and continuously testing recipes is a way of her daily life, passionately working with flavours and spices from her Indian heritage and merging with seasonal produce and knowledge gathered over the years.
In 2019, Tarunima was featured in The Observer top 50 things in food by Observer food monthly. She regularly contributes recipes to Observer food monthly.
Her cakes are known for their unique flavours and colourful designs and many have been awarded with Great Taste Awards. She is a firm believer that flavour is never to be compromised and that flavour comes first always, followed by beauty and design which is a close second. Her background is in design – so aesthetics of her bakes is very important to her too. She confidently works towards balancing both flavour and design with every single bake in her kitchen.
She creates bespoke wedding cakes and desserts tables to order and regularly hosts supper clubs with emphasis on her bakes and desserts.
She is fully committed to the joys of baking, learning everyday and sharing the knowledge. She hosts regular baking classes at her North London home and believes sharing knowledge is the only way to grow and learning never stops.
