Calli Creations

Such a beautiful gentle caring spirit that flows though your wonderful interview Gulnaz. You are connected to the earth and see beauty all around you. Adore your creations, all so unique to you with a gorgeous artistic distinctive style. A reflective snapshot insight into your life and your journey in cakes. Fully embrace your view on pushing the boundaries of self development and learning new skills. I’ve always fully advocated that.
Thanks so much for sharing with us sweet lady 💕


Love your cakes so much, amazing interview! ❤️

The Cookie Lab by Marta Torres

Loved reading it. It´s amazing to watch how you see beauty and how you transform that into edible art. The polluted area where you brought up did´t “kill” your creation and dream of a better and unpolluted environment. Your cakes are pure joy and a reflection of your inner beauty. Congrats.

Custom Cakes by Ann Marie

What a great interview…helps us to get to know our cake idols a little better! As soon as I saw that the interview was with you, I had to read it. I am self-taught and have followed you since I first started cakes a little over 4 years ago. I will never forget that you were the first person who shared one of my cakes and I remember thinking it was such a great honor because your work is so uniquely beautiful! And, you also take the time to leave lovely comments on my posts and it’s truly appreciated. Thank you, my friend! :)
