With a keen eye for fine detail, a desire for color, and a distinct design style Hemu Basu started baking at a young age as a pastime to fill her spare time. When she made the fire truck cake to celebrate her son’s birthday upon his request in 2012, all of her family members recognized the natural talent Hemu was gifted with and encouraged her to pursue the art as far as she could. This is how the self-taught Texas-based Indian baker not only discovered her passion for baking but was able to turn her passion into a profitable career with an independently-owned small business.

From there, Hemu grew to specialize in sculpted hyper-realistic cakes and climbed the industry ladder by winning several competitions/accolades, leading her to end up on Netflix’s radar. But, despite all the ambitions, her goal on “Is it Cake?’ was not to gain fame or name but rather to show off her children’s talents and dedicate the show to her youngest sister, who tragically passed in Covid-19 at the beginning of 2021. Sadly, even though Hemu demonstrated her skills, the judges correctly predicted her cake’s status to disqualify her from the final, and she got $10,000.

Icing does wonders for broken cakes. What is your icing choice in this scenario? I live my entire life with that… Be sure to follow directions; however, you can veer off when you have to. I have a framework that I follow, but I bend it whenever I’m required to.”
