Diwali to me is all about lights and vibrant colours. It always brings to me sweet memories of hours spent making colourful rangolis outside the house and then lighting it up with diyas. This is the one thing that I miss the most about Diwali, thanks to the rain and cold weather here at this time of the year. So this year, I decided to overcome the odds and make a Rangoli that you can keep indoors and even eat.
Presenting, my Rangoli cake….
This chocolate cake is covered in chocolate sugarpaste. I made the rangoli pattern by tracing out the motifs and using these to create sugarpaste cut-outs.
Even the diyas are edible (if marzipan excites your tastebuds!)
It will be on display at tonight’s Diwali party and consumed later by attendees.
What a beautiful cake!
