Cake ... Ooh La La !

Cake ... Ooh La La ( My Beautiful Food )

Vanilla , Ginger , Strawberry , Cardamom , Cinnamon , Butterscotch , Coffee , Lemon , Orange , Chocolate , Pineapple ... you name it and these all essences mingled , mesmerized the 'D' division of 10th class in A.B.Goregaonkar English school...Ooh la la !

We,the 50 students of 10-D had brought Cakes with various flavors to decorate them as a live project for Work-Experience. Just imagine ... we were supposed to  do these cake-decorations ( icing / designing ) on the regular wooden benches where we read and wrote daily.

Every bench was boasting of 2 fresh, homemade ,spongy, fluffy, delicious cakes waiting eagerly to be decorated with colorful cream, candied fruits, tiny silver mint-balls , Gems, Cherries, crystal jelly, designing tools such as piping syringes , guns and handmade cones.

The students as well as teachers were making a beeline at 10-D, to have a look now and expecting a slice of those eye-candy treats after we had finished the decorations.

We began with icing/frosting i.e. covering the top of the cake with cream. Most of us used either White or Chocolate cream as the base and then proceeded with next step of designing. 

I had visited Mongini's and Merwan's Cake-shops to get an idea of Cake-decorations. Eventually I drew my own design, which made my cake look like a Million dollar artifact.

Firstly, I frosted my cake-base with Chocolate cream. Secondly, I divided it into 4 quarters with a ruler. Thirdly, I used Pistachio-cream to draw zigzag lines to cover the 2 opposite quarters. Fourthly, I used Strawberry cream to draw the same design on the remaining 2 quarters. Now my cake resembled a lovely Birdy's nest. In the middle of the cake , I put 4 White marshmallows as eggs. Finally, I put tiny silver mint-balls on the border.

I took out the exquisite Borosil serving dish and placed my decorated Birdy's Nest-cake on it. Last but not the least , I sprinkled the Rose-petals around my cake , while presenting it to the teacher for final grading.


Ooh la la... Yes!

Yes, you guessed it right. I got A+ grade . The teacher complimented me about BOROSIL serving dish , saying " The Diamond sparkles more in Gold-setting."
