World's Most Expensive $40,000 Cake! Tribute To India’s Independence Day | Only In DUBAI At the request of a client in Dubai, the cake artists at Broadway Bakery have created the world’s most expensive edible cake to help celebrate the Indian Independence Day. It features Bollywood celebrity Aamir Khan (as Mahavir Singh Phogat) glamorously looking on with unwavering conviction as he trains his daughters Geeta and Babita for Olympic greatness. The client wanted gold to be generously incorporated into the cake and we 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 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. Broadway Bakery’s fondant artists, head chef, and high-tech product design teams studied Aamir Khan’s personality for over a week to perfect the model’s immaculate expression and larger than life presence. 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. #dangal #aamirkhan #fondantart #3dcake #indiaindependenceday #mydubai #myuae
