Link for "2011 Nilgiris Cake show photos"
Each year during christmas, cake exhibition is organized by Nilgiris. Exhibiton goes on for 10 days and it will have miniature edible monuments as the highlight
This years main attraction was miniature model of Taj Hotel, Mumbai. The chairman of the cake show said the iconic hotel was chosen this year to remember those who were killed in the Mumbai attacks. (photos from 35th annual nilgiris cake show here)
It took 15 people, working for 18,000 man hours and almost 2 months to complete this. The monument model was built with 8 tonnes of sugar, edible gelatine and colors and it measures 22 feet in length and 14 feet in width.
Edit: Some of you asked what happens to these cakes once the show is over? These cakes will be distributed to orphanage, they also have lucky draws and some of the small cakes will go to the winners of the lucky draw
