Dubai Indian Lady Orders $40,000 Gold-Laden Cake To Celebrate Independence Day
By IPA Special Correspondent
DUBAI: At the request of an Indian lady client in Dubai, whose name has not been disclosed, city-based Broadway Bakery has created the world’s most expensive edible cake as part of the celebrations of Indian Independence Day. It features Bollywood celebrity Aamir Khan (as Mahavir Singh Phogat) glamorously looking on with unwavering conviction as he trains his daughters Geeta and Babita for Olympic greatness.
The client wanted gold to be generously incorporated into the cake and the cake makers obliged her by coating each medal with 75grams of edible gold. The gold medals are beautiful replicas of the medal Geeta Phogat won in the 2010 Commonwealth Games wrestling finals.
It took Broadway Bakery’s teams 3.5 weeks and 1,200 man-hours to create this $40,000 cake, which is a work of art. Even though the sculpture took a long time to complete, the cake sponge is to be made fresh the night before the actual event.
