42 amazing cake designers from 17 countries around the world have come together to celebrate the Festival of Vesak. Each artist has created a cake to honor the triple anniversary of Lord Buddha – his birth, his attaining Enlightenment and his passing away into Nirvana.
We hope this cake collaboration will help bring enlightenment around the world!
When designing this cake I was inspired by the best known elements of Vesak. ‘The lotus Flower Latern’ combines two keys symbols of Buddhism in this 1,2m cake.
The lotus flower latern is fitted with a interior working light and sugar petals, and it is crowned with a gilded stupa.
I hope that you like my contribution.
Let’s light it up for Vesak!!
