Hello! I am Shivesh Bhatia. I am 21 years old and I live in New Delhi, India.
I graduated from Sardar Patel Vidyalaya in 2014. I went on to study Political Science from Hindu College, Delhi University and graduated in May'17. In school, I used to write a lot. I have written articles for leading newspapers like Hindustan Times and The Hindu. I stopped writing before my class 12th exams and unfortunately, never picked it up again.
I have always loved cakes and desserts. I started baking when I was in class 11. The first thing I baked was a batch of vanilla cupcakes with my cousins. We got Betty Crocker cake mix and still managed to burn a couple of cupcakes haha. I however enjoyed the entire process so much that I decided to do it more often. I had no idea that it will grow into something so big and will become such an important part of me. I started posting pictures of my cakes on Instagram and surprisingly got a great response from the lovely community. This encouraged me to experiment more and work on my styling and photography- something I love doing now.
I started blogging in December 2014 after being (almost) forced by my Instagram friends and now, I am glad they did. After blogging for almost a year, I decided to switch from blog to a website of my own. While the look has changed, the idea of creating simple yet beautiful recipes is still at the core of 'Bake With Shivesh'. I won the Oulook Social Media award in 2016 and got featured in Vogue's list of "20 Under 26" in 2017. I hope we'll only go forward from here. Happy Baking readers!
