A Dubai bakery claims to have made the “world’s most expensive edible cake”.
Cake artists at Broadway Bakery took around a month and over 1,200 man hours to bake the $40,000 (about Rs 25 lakh) cake.
The cake weighs 54kg and has a special Indian touch to it. It pays a tribute to India’s 70th Independence Day, and has a towering figure of Aamir Khan as Mahavir Phogat from his film ‘Dangal‘ and a scene from the superhit film.
“The client wanted gold to be generously incorporated into the cake and we fulfilled the request by coating each medal with 75gm of edible gold,” the Broadway Bakery said in an official statement posted on its Facebook account.
Also, a scene from the movie has been captured, where Phogat’s young daughters, Geeta and Babita are practicing Dangal (wrestling) in a makeshift Akhada (practising ground for wrestlers).
“The cake is 100% edible and made entirely using sugar fondant, the signature chocolate sponge, ganache, Belgian chocolate, demerara sugar and edible gold. The Signature Chocolate Cake is one of the best tasting gourmet cakes in town,” the bakery company said.
The bakers added that the cake can easily serve 240 guests.
