Bangalore, 23rd December, 2014: Tis the season to be jolly… and Orion Mall gave Bangaloreans another reason to be jolly this festive season. When visitors stepped into the mall on 23rd December, they were greeted by a life-size caricature Santa Claus cake standing a majestic 6 ft tall and 4 ft wide in the atrium of the mall. Weighing 230kg, this cake is the labor of love of 6 home bakers from the city. This Santa Claus exhibit is one of 3 such displays set up across the three metro cities of Mumbai, Delhi and Bangalore in an event organized by the 32 Degree Studio.

It took six home bakers three days to create the various components of this cake and assemble it here at the Orion Mall. The cake was on display between 11AM and 9PM. The six amazing bakers are:

  1. Dr. ArchanaDiwan of Cup-oh-licious
  2. Debyanjali of Cakes for all Occasions
  3. Lavanya Kotha of Kruthi- Art of Crafting
  4. Nidhi of Chef n Better Half as well as a representative of 32 Degree Studio
  5. Niveditha Mahendran of Cupcaked
  6. Poonam Ankur Srimal of A Pinch of Poom’s Love

The beauty of this cake was heightened by a ceremonial cake cutting. At a later point, slices of the cake were sold to raise funds for orphans in the city.

Speaking on this event, Mr. Sunil Munshi, GM, Orion Mall said, “This is a time when the spirit of happiness and good will is high. What better way to share the joy of the season than with an awe-inspiring cake display, which will later be distributed for a good cause.”

Commenting on the experience, the six home bakers collectively say that the experience was a joyful and the team had loads of fun, learning and sharing their knowledge during the journey of Joy of Caking.

Mr. Rakesh Saini, of 32 Degree Studio said, “This whimsical cake art exhibition was set up with the idea of giving Indian cake artists a platform that will help catapult them to recognition in the international sector.”
