Manny the Bride towers over all others

The bride is there but the groom is missing. Dressed in a pristine white flowing wedding gown with a tiered skirt, Manny the Bride is one of the star attractions at the 40th Nilgiris Cake Show. The six-and-a-half feet beauty made from rice crispy treats and marshmallows is a sight to behold. The white strapless gown with rose accents and a large bow around the waist perfectly complements Manny’s dusky complexion. A large pink-beaded necklace completes the look.

A colourful re-creation of the Parliament House will have you awestruck. The large cake measures 22 ft x 22 ft and has been made from sugar, eggs and corn flour. Unlike most of the cakes on show including ‘Manny the Bride’, the Parliament House has not been enclosed in a see-through case making it that much more easier to photograph it.

Fiercely guarding all the cakes is Toothless the Night Fury and a white tiger 🙂
