Eid is no fun without desserts. Order your bakes for Eid if you are in DMV area or surprise your loved one with a delicious treat. Munazza says,

My passion for baking developed during my college days. On the weekends, I started recreating the cakes I had consumed at coffee shops. With the helpful critique of family and friends, my bakes were perfected. I launched MK Bakes as a business in 2015. The kitchen soon became my happy place where I could unwind and unleash my creativity through my bakes, a feeling that I seldom found in my hefty law books!
Creating a personalized experience, unique to every client, is what sets my business apart.

We can't emphasize enough on supporting small businesses. Shopping small means getting that personalized treatment that we all secretly crave. Small businesses are helping our economy grow stronger and more vibrant. So in the spirit of Ramadan, let's support a small business and be unique as we style for Eid this year.
