Due to relocation, I will not be able to take any orders starting April, 2013.

Cakes are a labor of love, and Holycow Cakes are hand made, using high quality, fresh ingredients. Each cake has its own personality and a story to tell, as well as being a mouthwatering piece of art- that is, living up to the name!

Holycow Cakes specializes in designer cakes of all kinds. These are not the cakes you will find in Sam's, Costco's, or grocery store bakeries. They are not sitting in the freezer/refrigerator for months or weeks for a customer to come and pick them up. Your cake will be baked two days before your event and iced/decorated up to 24 hours prior to it (depending on cake type), so it has just enough time to incorporate the flavour and produce the most delectable taste experience.
My work is customized to your specific needs. Your cake is made with you in mind, fresh, tasty and unique. I steer clear from vegetable shortening because what is not good for me, is not good for you and your guests either.
Because of the custom nature of my business, I book up very quickly. I encourage you to book as early as possible. At least two week advance notice is preferable.

Holycow Cakes offers a variety of cake types (from American to classic European), special diet, as well as a variety of flavours and fillings. Please see the menu page. If you do not see the cake/ flavour you love, let me know and I may be able to accommodate your request.

Feel free to browse through some of the cake galleries on this site.

Holycow Cakes offers a variety of special diet cakes. These cakes take a different approach in the making, requiring special ingredients. A change in texture and taste is certainly noticed, but all the cakes are rich, moist and delicious. As a matter of fact, a large number of cakes displayed in my portfolio are diet cakes, and I have had great success with them, leaving customers satisfied and wish for one more slice! Any combination from this list can be worked out for your needs.

My house is pet free, smoke free and we are vegetarians, in case you have any concerns.

Adelina dazed the Ek celebration party in February 2012 with her theme cake. Guests, cast and teams were stunned to see her recreation of the Sai Satcharitra, Sai padukas and lotus sitting atop a beautifully patterned green paisley base. None of us had expected such an elaborate creation and her cake became the perfect expression of the Ek spirit and success. Adelina throws herself with passion in every one of her cakes. She takes her work seriously, far beyond material assessment. With her, cake decoration is an art and she strives to satisfy her clients with absolute sincerity. I know there's no one else for us onwards!

Adelina made such a beautiful, ingenious and memorable birthday cake for my daughter’s first birthday in May. Holy Cow! J My daughter loves books, so I asked Adelina to make a book cake and it was just perfect! She used lovely pastel shades and added nice details to create a magical fairyland theme book-cake. Adelina took the time to understand what I was looking for, and added her own creativity and design sensibilities to create the cake. She even sent a graphic image to help us visualize the cake! The cake was almost like a centerpiece at the party. It not only looked terrific, but was also super delicious! I have seen and tasted other cakes designed by Adelina, and am very impressed and amazed each time at the ingenuity. She is really talented and her passion for her work can be seen in the end product. Highly recommend her for one-of a kind creative custom cakes, unlike any other available in Austin!


I ordered a cake for my brother and sister-in-law's 13th wedding anniversary- and since they were visiting us from India, it was a surprise case for this occasion! I gave Adelina the freedom to make a cake suitable for this occasion- and she produced the most wonderful heart shaped and decorated cake we have seen!- the inside was a soft, moist, pineaple filled cake with light and airy buttercream- she made the day so special! I highly recommend her cakes to anyone who wants a unique mouthwatering edible masterpiece made for that special event!
