My Cake for the Festival of Lights Collaboration 2014

Daily Top 3 - Oct 07, 2014

We are 37 cake artists from around the world, all from different countries and regions with different backgrounds, religions and ethnicities. We have come together to acknowledge a beautiful, special Hindu holiday which is celebrated in Autumn of every year. It is called “Diwali”, also known as “A Festival of Lights”. It is India’s biggest and most important holiday of the year!The festival spiritually signifies the victory of light over darkness, knowledge over ignorance, good over evil, and hope over despair. During the festival, which is celebrated for five days, Hindus prepare by cleaning, decorating, shopping, gift giving and baking sweet treats for loved ones. Feasts are prepared and families come together. Prayers are offered to deities. Stories of ancient myths and legends are told to children. Children prepare for the celebration by painting rangoli chalk designs on walkways and on the night of Diwali, fireworks are displayed. It is the happiest of all Hindu celebrations!

As cake artists we wanted to represent this beautiful holiday in cake form. Each of us designed our cakes based on the gorgeous colors, rich traditions and religious practices inspired by Diwali. Please join us to celebrate Diwali! We hope you enjoy……Happy Diwali!

To me, Diwali isn’t just a festival of lights, it’s the celebration of all things Pious and Divine. The lotus as we know, represents the spirit of creation and prosperity. The diyas signify knowledge, and the submission of one’s soul to the supreme power. And the windows in my mind bring forth an abundance of light and fortune . The painted lotus pattern and the colour palette was inspired by one of my favourite Good Earth mugs. Photography by the uber talented Bani Chawla.
