Global Wedding Awards 2022

Page 16 LUX 2022 Global Wedding Awards Throughout Natalia Bagai’s childhood, the kitchen was her church and Betty Crocker was her bible. Baking with her mother formed some of her fondest and most treasured memories that started this path to Lulus. Another ingredient to Little Lulus was the encouragement of her father. Natalia’s father, Vikram Bagai, came from a long line of successful entrepreneurs in India. He would tell her stories about Bagai Motor Service and Bagai Agricultural Estates. He would vividly tell her about her grandfather and how he was the CEO of cole & coke companies, in charge of tea estates, an amazing philanthropist and champion golfer. “Growing up I always knew that I wanted to go into business for myself and keep the Bagai name proud” she said and this where the recipe to her success began. Once she’d attended culinary school, Natalia continued to work in all departments of the food and beverage industry, addicted to the culture and learning more with each passing day. Natalia has always believed that if you love what you do, you’ll never have to work a day in your life – Although the days were long and a career within this industry can test your mental strength. After seven years of hard work, sacrifice and dedication, it was time for Natalia to focus that energy into the one thing she knew would make her happiest: starting her own business, Lulu’s Cakes & Catering in 2017. Creating the menu, she knew that she wanted to pull from her European pâtissier training she received while working at Soho House Los Angeles. She offers a modern twist on classic desserts while serving up the most decadent and elegant pastries, breads and custom cakes. Lulu’s is a private dessert catering company, which means everything is baked and assembled fresh to order. All desserts are proudly made from scratch using only the finest ingredients that you can truly taste, in every bite. Ever since she was a little girl, Natalia Bagai has had a deep love for baking, having spent many hours in the kitchen with her mother, Lulu over the years. And that is where the LLCC story begins… Mar22243 Little Lulu’s Cakes & Catering Best Dessert Catering Company 2022 - San Diego Her clients are the world to her and there is not much she won’t do to make someone’s event so special. “I tell my clients to think of me as their personal baker. I’m always so incredibly honoured to be a part of these monumental moments in someone’s life. It’s even more of a gift to be a part of continued events and watch families and lives grow. I’ve built amazing relationships with all my clients and it’s something I will always cherish.” One of Little Lulu’s CC’s customers shared their experience “Not only are you talented but also have the biggest heart! It was a pleasure working with you. Your professionalism and kindness is unmatched!” In her closing comments, Natalia comments on her journey and achievements, “I remember telling myself at 19 that I would become an entrepreneur by the age by 30, and I hit my goal at 28. The road was hard and there were absolutely moments I didn’t believe it was possible, however with consistency and passion I persevered. Although this is such an intimidating route, my parents never believed that it wasn’t achievable and so, I dedicate this company to them. I would not be the woman I am today with all their guidance and example of what it looks like to work hard and always give back. This love for kitchen grew as a little girl and the fact that I was able to turn it into my lively hood is still a dream I sometimes forget is reality. I hope to continue to make my late father proud of the Bagai name and share all future success of Lulus alongside my mother.” Ultimately, it’s easy to see what makes Little Lulu’s the Best Dessert Catering Company 2022 in San Diego, with the love, dedication, and attention to detail that goes into each dessert. Natalia strives to create pieces of art that exceed expectations, and they don’t only look divine, but they taste it, too.
