Diwali

This is another very last minute cake I made for my Indian neighbor celebrating Diwali. Just a night before the eve of Diwali, my neighbor came knocking at my door and asked for a big favor if I could make a cake for her as the cake she ordered from else where wasn’t enough to feed her guest. As usual, I couldn’t say no. I was in action and had no time to loose as soon as my neighbor left. I couldn’t do any research nor had time to sketch out my work so I decided to take in the idea of my recent visit to Little India. I quickly made 2 sugar clay lights and prepare my black royal icing. The next morning I bake 2 cakes, covered with fondant and stack them up. The challenge began when I have to pipped my royal icing free handedly looking like Henna!! Goodness..it was so challenging and finally my pipping work on the whole cake was finished after 7 hours!! I’ve totally forgotten that my neighbor requested a yellow cake and my cake was white with black pipped out work!!! I quickly picked up a smallest brush I had and painted my cake with yellow edible color and try to cover up those white spots in yellow…lol!! Cake was delivered at 10.30pm on the eve of Dewali. I wasn’t sure if it was a nightmare for me but definitely another unforgettable experience!! Here is a Henna inspired cake celebrating the ‘Festival of Light’, wishing all Hindu’s a very Happy Diwali!!
