Hey, guys! Hope you all are doing fine!
We got a chance to attend the 36th Annual Bangalore Cake Exhibition last weekend, and did we love it?! The exhibits were awesome this year, too, and we had a lovely time drooling over them, in spite of the HUGE crowd. For the uninitiated, the Cake Exhibition is an annual exhibition of cakes held in Bangalore, usually around Christmas time, generally at the St. Joseph High School grounds.
There is a particular highlight chosen for the exhibition each year, and the central piece of the exhibition is modelled around this theme. This year’s highlight is a cake modelled on the Taj Mahal Hotel of Mumbai, which faced serious damage in the 2008 terrorist attacks.
Also worth mentioning are the various stalls selling chaat and other food stuff at the exhibition. We find them awesome, and hog ourselves silly there. 🙂
Here are some pictures from this year’s exhibition, for your
drooling viewing pleasure.:)
That is the replica of the Taj Hotel. Isn’t it awesome? I really admire the creativity involved in making such stuff – the hundreds of man hours required, the tonnes of cream and sugar that goes into it, and the amount of patience involved in creating something like this literally out of scratch.
The above two pics are of ‘Santa Villa’ and the cutesy little garden it had. With Christmas just around the corner and the festive spirit making an appearance everywhere, it was apt. I especially loved the garden. I wish I could go there and sit for a while! 🙂
That pic is that of a wedding cake – one of the tallest I have ever seen.
That is another wedding cake – my personal favourite at the exhibition this year. I loved everything about this cake – from the light pink colour, to the flowers and the bride and groom on the top. 🙂
That, needless to say, is a replica of a grandpa clock. Doesn’t it look awfully real?
The better half loved the above two cakes – a boat house and a treasure chest. The chest especially looks so real, innit?
That is another wedding cake – a multi-tiered one.
The above two pics are of Humpty Dumpty and Bunny House. Cute, aren’t they?
That pic is another one of my favourite cakes at this year’s festival – a pretty flower basket. Which of these is your favourite?
I’m not sure whether these cakes would taste as good as they look, but we sure had a lovely time looking at them.
Did you go to the exhibition? If not, do visit it before December 27. Highly recommended. 🙂
