A Wedding Cake Episode

It has been a long time since I wanted to see him work and how he makes those amazing looking and very delicious cakes. Yes, I am talking about the man behind LV Patisserie - LV (Elvy) Leivang.

Finally I got the chance to see him work. He said he was making a wedding cake and invited me behind closed doors. I knew I would have a great time since he promised free cake.

So Rri and I went over to his bakery - and we were not disappointed.

Elvy and I go way back to college days in Hyderabad. He always had good food at his place. It was always a treat to visit him and his sister.


Now he has become this great pastry chef which I only see on shows like "Bake Off" or some cake shows. It was simply a pleasure to see him work.

As he finished decorating the cake with luster spray I began clicking away on my camera. I was standing opposite him and I did get some sparkles on my shirt, but that's part of the job.

It was raining and the clouds didn't quite cleared up. Elvy place the cake under a big bulb to set and the light gave a fantastic radiance to the cake which I was more than willing to capture.

The cake looked even more impressive with its golden shine and contrast of green and of course  little jewellery chains flowing out.

The day was great, we had enormous amount of cakes and chocolate and good company. Couldn't ask for a better way to spend a day.
