My contribution to the beautiful Festival of Lights Cake Collaboration. https://www.facebook.com/pages/Festival-of-Lights-Cake-Collaboration/292179640973315?fref=ts
My inspiration: In preparation for the Festival or Lights or “Diwali” Festival, the Hindu children draw beautiful Rangoli patterns with chalk on the walkways leading to their houses. These colorful drawings are meant to be sacred welcoming areas for the Hindu deities. My cake, especially my cake board is inspired by these chalk drawings and Rangoli designs, which can be simple geometric shapes, deity impressions, or flower and petal shapes. I chose the paisley shape as it is also seen throughout Indian fashion, décor and art. My cake also has the lotus flower which is also a traditional Hindu symbol, meaning beauty, fertility, prosperity, spirituality, and eternity.
