About Me
Welcome to Dessarts, a blog about the art of dessert. My name is Urvashee. Once upon a time, I was a high school science teacher. I left the field to take some time off before starting a family. So, I decided I was going to spend some time pursuing my passion for dessert. I joined the French Culinary Institute’s Pastry Program and learned with the professionals.  Shortly after completing the program, I was blessed with my baby boy! Although he keeps me busy, I’ve managed to still make some dessert here and there.

Now, when I have a few moments to myself I bake, cook, read, blog and tweet anything and everything dessert. Please forgive my writing style. I’m not a writer. Never was. I’ll admit my blog posts can be a little “sciency” sometimes. Then again, half of the art of the dessert making is the science behind it! I hope you enjoy all the sweet musings.I love hearing from my readers. If you would like to contact me, please email me at urvashee[at]dessarts[dot]com .

Advertising and Collaboration:

I’m always open to collaboration if its something that I find is a good fit for my blog. Please feel free to email me if you think you have something that would work.

Occasionally, I will link to products within blog posts that are sold on Amazon that I either use myself or think would be of use to my readers.

I knew I was missing out on something by moving to North Carolina from Jersey City. Three years later, I finally figured out what it is–being your guinea pig! Great job on this blog–I normally don’t read them but you now have a dedicated follower!

Love the blog ! I am not a baker, but I think I may start after reading your blog. Everything looks delicious. I tried the cupcakes and they turned out insanely fantastic. Keep it up! Looking forward to new desserts :) Wish you were here down south, so that I could just have you come over :)

Hi Urvashee! I love your blog. Its beautiful. I do love Indian desserts and I somehow get lazy about making them. You inspired me to get back TO WOrK. and then Work out as well 😀

I wanted to try the Chocolate Mille Crepe Cake but as I am a vegetarian, I would be highly obliged if I could know how to make the eggless variation.
