A Dubai Broadway Bakery has made what it’s claiming is the world’s most expensive edible cake. It features Bollywood celebrity Aamir Khan as Mahavir Singh Phogat from his film Dangal glamorously looking on with unwavering conviction as he trains his daughters Geeta and Babita for Olympic greatness. The cake is 100% edible and made entirely using sugar fondant, the signature chocolate sponge, ganache, Belgian chocolate, demerara sugar and edible gold. The Signature Chocolate Cake is one of the best tasting gourmet cakes in town.
The client wanted gold to be generously incorporated into the cake and the bakery fulfilled the request by coating each medal with 75grams of edible gold. It took Broadway Bakery’s teams 3.5 weeks and 1,200 man-hours to create this $40,000 work of art.
The model is 4 feet tall from the base to the tip of Aamir Khan’s head. The fresh sponge weighs 30kg while the overall weight comes to 54kg. At the current weight, the cake can comfortably serve 240 guests.
