It’s all about cakes!

on

I had been to a cake exhibition recently. By ‘recently’ I mean somewhere during Christmas,2016. 

The cake exhibition was hosted by Nilgiris, one of the famous cake shops in South India. A large variety of beautifully crafted cakes were on display. Photography was strictly prohibited, but a lot of people were clicking selfies. So I decided to click a few shots of the cakes; a few photos that I am posting below might be a bit blurry, but that is because all the cakes were enclosed in huge plastic boxes. 

Here we go!!

Did you know that the Tower bridge of London was made up of cake and icing?

Would you like to have a bite of a scrumptious-looking dragon?

Or, how about a peacock?

She was one of the most beautiful queens of ancient Egypt.

A typical Rajasthani wedding : bride and bridegroom, the groom’s petha, mehandi on the bride’s hands and a beautiful mandap. Did you notice the wedding procession ? 

Jack and the beanstalk.

And a closer look at it. Notice the writing on the book and the hen that laid golden eggs.

Another wedding procession! And the couple have already packed their honeymoon suitcases.

 And then I saw this man, silently sitting and staring at everyone.

Let’s have a closer look at him, shall we?

Oh! It’s Rajinikanth!!

Moving on…another wedding cake!

Some vanity fair it was!

Along came an electric guitar..

And a BMW.

Who let the dogs out??? That too, 101 of them!

Let’s end it with another wedding cake! They all live happily ever after..

  1. Great coverage. ‘London Bridge’ is actually ‘Tower Bridge’

      1. Someone in America bought an earlier London Bridge which has been replaced. It is probably a myth that they thought they were buying Tower Bridge.

        Oh.. so the tower bridge and London bridge from ‘london bridge is falling down’ are not the same?
        The media described the bridge (in my photo) as London bridge. May be, not many know that is actually a tower bridge.

      3. No – they are not the same. The media can only be regarded as correct if it is interpreted a bridge in London, of which there are many. Have a look at this: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tower_Bridge
        The bridge was designed to open in the middle to allow high masted ships to pass under it. /Users/derrickjohnknight/Desktop/tower-bridge-and-london-bus-jumping-the-gap-as-the-bridge-opens-A75FAF.jpg This happened in 1952

      5. If you look up Bus over Tower Bridge you will find the story and picture of a bus getting caught as the bridge was opening in 1952. The driver jumped the bus over the gap. I was 10 years old so thought it a wonderful event šŸ™‚

        They usually auction it off to big companies. These companies give away chunks of cakes to their employees as new year gift. šŸ˜€
