Bangalore, Dec.18 (ANI): Scores of people flocked to the 36th annual cake exhibition in Bangalore, where a cake modelled on the Taj Mahal Hotel in Mumbai was displayed in the show.
The chairman of the cake show said the iconic hotel was chosen this year to remember those who were killed in the Mumbai attacks.
"This year we chose Taj Hotel. It is also a contribution to the people who have lost their lives there. And then the other thing is the presence of the U.S. President who stayed there," said Ramachandran, Chairman, Cake Show.
"Totally 15 people worked on the cake for almost 18,000 man hours and almost two months," he added.
The monument model was built with five tonnes of sugar, and measured 22 feet in length and 14 feet in width.
All the structures were built using sugarcane and edible gelatine and colours.
"This is a very amazing affair. It has a fan club. Totally a different kind of thing. Kids really enjoy it. It is a different concept altogether for an event, for an exhibition, and it is amazing. The crowd which comes, they are all zapped and amazed to see such a beautiful thing," said Goutham, organiser of the fair.
