India entered its 70th year of independence forging into a new horizon of greater development, leadership and commitment goals. As we go across the nation and ask the views of 1.3 billion millennia each one has a different and unique response to their experience as a citizen of this great country with a rich cultural past. But what came to us as a surprise is this phenomenal “Dangal Cake” by the Dubai based Broadway Bakery that commemorates India’s 70th Independence Day with this priceless gift. And could we ask for more? Yes, you certainly need to hold your breath, as this cake is deemed to be the world’s most expensive cake priced at a whopping $40000.
While the film “Dangal” definitely made some noise at the box office, this Bollywood buff who owns the bakery seems to have taken it too seriously, thanks to his immense love for the nation which ultimately culminated into this remarkable feat.
The cake features a robust Amir Khan standing at 4 feet tall from the base till the tip of his head, overlooking his two daughters wrestling in an Akhada, displaying two medals loaded with 75 gms. of edible gold. “The idea was to create a design that commemorated India’s Independence Day while simultaneously honoring the achievements of its brave people,” said Broadway Bakery’s head chef Dominic Joseph Samuel.
On the eve of Independence Day what could be a better offer than this gigantic gourmet cake made out of luxe ingredients like sugar fondant, chocolate sponge, ganache, Belgian chocolate, demerara sugar and edible gold. Weighing 54 kilograms, this one of a kind cake can serve up to 240 guests.
“The client being a feminist is also impressed with this cake built with a pro-feminist theme.” said the head chef. The sugar models of the two young girls wrestling in the sand, also bears striking resemblance to the real film characters. Since the client wanted the cake to be generously incorporated with gold, the two Commonwealth medals which adorn the cake are rich in 75 gms of edible gold. It is noteworthy that the fondant artist, head chef and the hi-tech product design teams studied Amir Khan’s original character and expressions to the T, to be replicated in this flawless cake. We have to admit that the end results leave us speechless and asking for more!
The bakery received a tremendous feedback for this edible cake and now requests are pouring in for cakes themed on Bollywood celebrities and popular TV shows like Salman Khan and Game of Thrones.
The making of the cake has received raving reviews in the social media network, and has been viewed 72000 times over Facebook. People are getting completely awestruck with the efforts and ease with which these professional bakers have created this milestone in bakery. We definitely fall short of words to express our gratitude to these genius cake artists, who have showered upon this wonderful gift on India’s 70th Independence Day and unraveling more sweet dreams in the years to come.
