Have you ever wanted to make homemade baked goodies but just didn’t have the time? Well, I’ve experienced that as well and met a local Memphis baker who makes amazing baked goodies! Her name is Saanvi Seth of The Basic Brownie. She runs her local small (orders only) bakery through her house and has had tremendous success with it. She’s also starting college in the fall – yes, I said college! Saanvi is a young entrepreneur. But don’t let her age fool you, she is wise beyond her years.
Saanvi also comes from a family of entrepreneurs/small business owners. Her mom is none other than the amazingly talented Style Palettes Fashion Boutique owner, Ruchika Seth. One can say that the apple did not fall far from the tree. Both mother and daughter are talented in their own crafts and run their own successful small business within the Memphis, TN area. They are both also co-founders of a local non-profit called Creativity Feeds. I love supporting both women and can’t wait to see them both grow their businesses even more.
I had previously worked with Ruchika on a blog post promoting her amazing homemade scarves. And now, I have the pleasure to work with Saanvi. She won my giveaway with Jani (of What’s on your Mind Podcast) and got a feature on my blog as one of her winnings!
Without further ado, check out my interview with Saanvi and her accomplishments below!
When did you start your small business/baking shop?
I started it in August 2020, during the early months of the pandemic.
What motivated you to start your baking business?
My mom was the main person to motivate me to start my baking business.
What is your baking specialty? For example, brownies, cookies, etc?

That is a fact, Saanvi’s baking specialty are her brownies. If you haven’t bought anything from her yet, at least buy her brownies.
What is your best-selling item?
My best-selling item recently is my macarons and custom sugar cookies.

It’s hard to pick my favorite item, but I love making different flavors of macarons, and I also love doing different sugar cookie themes.

Yes, I am currently testing new flavors for my summer menu! I’m working with peaches, mangos, and a few other fruits.

Overall, I had a great time getting to know Saanvi more for this guest blog post. I’m glad she won the giveaway for a feature on the blog! She is extremely talented, smart and a gorgeous young lady. I can’t wait to see her grow even more during her college years and beyond. Don’t forget to check out her Small Business called The Basic Brownie.
