When I planned my trip to Melbourne, it was important to me to meet other makers and have a cup of coffee or to create with them.

Poonam of The Maharani Diaries noticed my call-out and introduced me to a fellow tribe member, Narmi, from My Cake Studio in Melbourne. She pointed us in the right direction, and Narmi & I worked together to create this creation.

Narmi was so welcoming and gracious. She shared her personal story with me. This day was dedicated to letting creativity flow (no rules!) Here’s a cake that pays homage to our Sri Lankan & Indian Heritage.

South Asian fashion is a feast for the eyes. With its vibrant colors and intricate details, it’s hard to ignore. It is a true feast for the eye. From elegant Sarees to statement Lehengas. What better way to show your love for it than by reinterpreting it on cake

Narmi and I were drawn to the shades of Olive, Pink, and Purple on the Saree featured by the Fashion Design Council of India. We decided to combine both our styles with fondant and flowers in order to make it come to life.

This is The Blushing Bride in all her glory. Each panel is our interpretation of the outfits in the mood board. Initially, we worked on individual panels to showcase our abilities. The panels came together magically in the end. Square cakes with distinctive panels are a hit!

Narmi finished the structure with fondant and added the floral fondant and stencil details. She is a natural at this art, where I am lacking patience. I created the floral and abstract art wall using my favorite Australian Natives, Blushing Brides. How beautiful are these blooms? The flowers arranged on top are the result of combined efforts. You must agree that this is a good result for two people working together for the very first time.
