Mehendi Indian Wedding Cakes.

One of the most important pre-wedding ceremonies in Indian marriages is the ‘Mehendi ki raat’. It is not only a fun pre-wedding ritual but also has a deep-rooted cultural significance to it.
Traditional Ritual

Here is a Mehendi I created for the pre-wedding party.

Applying mehendi to the bride and the groom before the wedding, is one of the oldest Indian traditions. The ceremony, however, entails an elaborate application of mehendi designs on a bride’s hands and feet. As for the groom, a mere token of application of henna is a mark of good omen.

As a wedding tradition, it is followed in many part of India as well as in neighbouring countries of Pakistan, Bangladesh and Nepal. Mehendi is quite popular among Muslims as well. According to Islamic literature, Prophet Muhammad used mehendi to dye his beard and administered its use to those who were unwell. Because of this, mehendi ceremony is an important pre-wedding ritual, observed in the Indian subcontinent and many Arabic nations.

This is the cake for the wedding.

I also make fresh cream cakes for any occasion.

The Making Of Disney Frozen Children's Cake.

When a film takes off as quickly as Frozen, you can bet little kids everywhere will be asking for birthday parties with it as the theme. With it's glistening ice castle, mountains of snow, and adorable characters — I mean, you can't beat Olaf and Sven as lovable characters — the entire movie lends itself to kiddie parties. 

Here is a couple of pictures of the Frozen cake I recently made for a kids party:-
