Hard to believe these are cakes!

It’s been several years since I have been to a Nilgiris Cake Show. This year I was lucky not to miss it. The cakes at the Nilgiris cake shows are different. They don’t exactly tingle your taste buds but leave you awestruck with their looks. A thing of beauty is a joy to behold! These cakes crafted by master bakers at Nilgiris are just that. Have a look:

Every year, the show has a special attraction. This year it is a 20-feet tall replica of Hyderabad’s most famous monument, the Charminar. An India Today report says that 5 tonnes of sugar, several kilos of cream, and hundreds of eggs went into the making of this model. The team of 40 people took over 2 months to bake and decorate this delight:

Vying for attention with the Charminar is a life-size replica of the country’s most loved cricketer Sachin Tendulkar:

Also grabbing a lot of attention is a colourfully clad village belle:

This is one exhibition you would not want to miss! The Nilgiris Cake Show 2013 is on till 29th December at St. Joseph’s School Grounds opposite Kanteerva Stadium.

Psst….Though there are banners all around screaming “…..photography prohibited”, nobody stopped me and so many others from taking pictures.
