Everyone feels overwhelmed and confused in life sometimes. We wonder which direction life will take us in. Sometimes its just a stroke of luck that brings us to our passion. This is what happened to Priya Vijan, a commerce graduate who moved on to do a diploma in fashion designing and then to an MBA in retail management. After she finished her studies, she moved on to working with an events production company but didn’t feel that this was what she wanted to do.

She took up classes and learnt how to do decorative fondant and is an expert today

Through months of thinking and wondering what to do, she took up baking. With no culinary background, she started learning on her own on YouTube. Once she started getting the hang of it (even with numerous failures), she decided to take up classes and learn more and more. She then started Melt It Down, a home bake store where she sells cakes, cupcakes, cake pops, tarts and more. She took up classes and learnt how to do decorative fondant and is an expert today.

Here is a little glimpse of her five year journey of Melt It Down to what it is today! It just goes to show that if you put your head and heart into something, with practice you can become perfect!
