As cake artists we wanted to represent this beautiful holiday in cake form. Each of us designed our cakes based on the gorgeous colors, rich traditions and religious practices inspired by Diwali. Please join us to celebrate Diwali!
In preparation for the Diwali Festival, the Hindu children draw beautiful Rangoli patterns with chalk on the walkways leading to their houses. These colorful drawings are meant to be sacred welcoming areas for the Hindu deities. My cake, especially my cake board is inspired by these chalk drawings and Rangoli designs, which can be simple geometric shapes, deity impressions, or flower and petal shapes. I chose the paisley shape as it is also seen throughout Indian fashion, décor and art. My cake also has the lotus flower which is also a traditional Hindu symbol, meaning beauty, fertility, prosperity, spirituality, and eternity.
