About The Dream Team
Dream a Dozen is a Gifting & Celebrations company in Bangalore, India.
We take immense pride in operating a cloud bakery with an All-Women kitchen, a remarkable achievement considering the stark gender disparity that exists in the culinary industry. Statistics reveal that only a mere 3% of chefs in commercial kitchens are female. By defying the odds, we are breaking barriers and creating a platform where women from disadvantaged communities can thrive and upskill.
All the products we bake are 100% eggless & made with no added preservatives. We believe that "Empowered Women, Empower Women" and love working & collaborating with businesses with similar values and ethos.
We cater to a lot of corporate companies for their office pantry, and festive gifting and ship gift hampers across the country all through the year for new joinees and company celebrations. We also work on their employee engagement activities by conducting baking workshops, creating DIY dessert kits, and more!
Moreover, our reusable gift boxes also contain hand-crafted items we have sourced from women-based NGOs or women entrepreneurs to help support our cause.
In the past 5 years of our establishment, we've worked with over 100+ corporate companies including Goldman Sachs, Deloitte, EY, Indiqube, Cisco, Ericsson, KPMG, Narvar, and many more.
While corporate collaborations are a significant part of our business, we also cater to personal celebrations. Our expertise extends to designing wedding cakes, creating dessert tables, and providing unique return gifts for weddings and other events. Furthermore, we offer prompt dessert deliveries to individuals across Bangalore, ensuring everyone can savor our delightful creations.
