Naked Desserts

Malini Suryanarayanan, a budding entrepreneur and baker, has launched an online business – Naked Desserts – to cater to chocolate-lovers in Traffic City. All you have to do is log on to http://www.nakeddesserts.com and place an order. It will be delivered to your doorstep or you can pick it up.

Currently, they have only seven items on their menu list – chocolate brownies, flourless chocolate cookies, chocolate chip cookies, strawberry squares, chocolate sampler box (a combo box with some of the above items), banana nut bread and date nut bread. I expect this list will grow as their clientele expands.

I wanted to order the brownies, a box of the flourless chocolate cookies and a loaf of each of the breads, but unfortunately Malini was leaving on vacation the next day. She said she could get me the brownies and the chocolate chip cookies and deliver it to my house the next day. And she did. The cookies were crisp and fresh – but I found them a bit too sweet. Good but not fantastic. The brownies, on the other hand, were awesome – chewy, moist, chocolatey and perfect!!

I am going to try out their other products – and will let you know. On the price front, I think they are really expensive – the cookies are, in any case. A pack of 13 of the brownies or the cookies cost Rs.125 each. Delivery charges were Rs.50 which I thought were reasonable considering she had to trek all the way to South Bangalore. I hope that with time, Malini is able to come up with more choices and more competitive prices.
