Cake-sphere

Now how can any wedding be complete without some yummy food and sweets. Although wedding cake was not part of the traditional Indian wedding, but it’s becoming quite popular these days.

Indian inspired cakes are the new in thing be it in Dubai or London. People start to get bored with the same and similar design every time they see a wedding cake. They need something more authentic and unique. Now you can’t have an all Indian wedding and then have a white wedding cake that would just look odd. Most couples tend to stick to the theme of the event while designing their cake.

They may use some ornament for their Indian feel. Ganesha figure is very popular along with the motifs on Sari. Paisley and henna designs are also very popular. While I’m not a fan of using ganesha and other idols as part of the cake, using a dulha and dulhan wedding topper seems quite cool.

Where to get these in Dubai? Sugaholic Bakeshop in Karama can customise any cake according to your preferences(full feature on them coming soon). The sister duo do an amazing job not only at providing brilliant designs but also at providing some very yummy cakes. I have been getting all my cakes from them for a while and I must say they never disappoint.

Cake Bar in Jumeirah is another place that offers some very good cakes, while the Indian quotient might not be very prominent as the chef is European you could provide them with designs and they would be able to do it.

Another brilliant idea is to incorporate Mithaai in the cake. Recently one of my friends got a mithaai cake done for her roka ceremony. Just have your mithaai shop to customise the shape of the barfi dough. Puranmal sweets have an amazing spread of mithaai to offer.

Pocket Pinch? While a custom designed 1 kg cake would cost an approx. 350-400 the price could be higher if you decide to have a tiered cake etc. With the mithaai it is usually charged per kg depending on which mithaai you choose and some added cost for the customisation.
