Sweet masterpieces

So, we did manage to visit the cake show that I was telling you about here, last month. As always, the cakes were beautiful – sweet masterpieces in themselves.

We wanted to stare at each cake for ages, and exclaim over the nuances of the design, the attention to detail, and the sheer creativity and determination that would have gone into their making. Sadly, we weren’t able to do that, even though we had chosen a time when there would be no crowd at all, this time around. The bouncers present at the venue ushered us through the exhibition in a matter of 15-20 minutes, reminding us much of the very famous ‘Tirupathi Darshan’. 🙂

Here are a few pictures I somehow managed to click in the midst of all the hullabaloo at the exhibition. Do look out for my favourites – the lion, the pentagon depicting the major religions of India, the pillows, and the biiiiig wedding cake with the roses. 🙂

      I loved the cushions too! 🙂

      That FB page you shared is gorgeous! That said, I have come across many such cake artists in India and outside, who make equally beautiful cakes. Their creations are too lovely for the user to want to cut and eat them. 🙂

  1. My favourite – the pillows 😀

    We visited the exhibition last year, enjoyed it..but it was way too crowded. So anticipating the crowds again, we did not go this time.

      The lion is one of my favourites, too! 🙂

      The last picture in the collage is the pentagon depicting the major religions of India. If you see closely, the green side shows Islam. The other side (the red one) depicts a South Indian temple. That picture is not all that clear, sadly, but that is the one.

      They are fantastic, aren’t they?

      I often wonder what they do with these cakes after the exhibition is over. These cakes are made out of powdered sugar and colour; I am not sure if we can even eat them. 😦

      Yes, each one of them is a masterpiece in itself.

      I really have no idea what they do with these cakes after the exhibition is over. As I was telling GB, I am not sure if these cakes can be eaten at all.

      1. You can, you can. Everything except the dowels and the plywood trays holding them is edible. I am a big fan of the programme Fabulous cakes on TLC and I KNOW! Apparently the cakes are given for charity in foreign countries when they have a show like this. Dunno about India.
