Eggless Cakes from The Cake Designer
She’s made Madhur Jaffrey, Preity Zinta, Yoko Ono and even Cherie Blair, the former First Lady of Britain, taste her cakes. She says with a smile, “Preity Zinta called them ‘yummy’; Yoko Ono said ‘Nice cupcakes’ and Cherie Blair said, ‘These are great!’”
Indeed, if Parul Patel has a mission in life, it’s to get a cupcake inside you! Parul has a company called The Cake Designer, which operates out of a 2000 sq. ft. state-of-the-art commercial kitchen in Millington, NJ, specializing in vegetarian cakes of every genre. She makes 3-D fantasy custom-made cakes, all without the offending egg.

The fillings include such exotic blends as Pistachio Cardamon Delight, Almond and Saffron Fusion, and Mango Delight.

Working out of a 2000 sq. ft state-of-the-art commercial kitchen in Millington, NJ, she provides vegetarian cakes for everything from birthdays to mehndi parties. “Our cakes are lower in cholesterol and a healthy alternative to traditional cakes made with eggs,” says Parul. She also provides eggless cakes and desserts to restaurants and these are now available in Morton Williams, an upscale supermarket which has 12 stores in the tri-state area.
So convinced is Parul of the irresistibly of her cakes that she’s at practically every social event in the city, to turn people into believers with a complimentary tasting.
Ah, what is life without a cupcake?
