Sugar flower – Purple passion flower (Krishna Kamal)
Passiflora Incarnata (The scientific name of this flower ) is also known as Krishna Kamal, Maypop, purple passion flower, true passion flower, wild apricot and wild passion vine.
I was instantly attracted to this beauty when I saw a picture from a friend’s garden and later was amazed to see the real flower at the nursery. There are so many vareities of this flower, each having an intrigueing beauty of its own. I chose the purple flower for its colour and the complex intriguing nature of its elements.
Its been one of the most intensive flowers I have worked on. Beginning with thinking of the various ways to create the multiple elements of this flower, ways to get them together, to getting the final look in place, was quite a task.

Love the delicate fragrance, unique flavour and the vibrant colour of these strands!
The flowers look so pretty with the violet colour petals, the yellow pollens and the red-orange strands…all contrasting but complimenting colours on these flowers!!

A cake I worked on for the Classic Bollywood Movie Cake Collaboration.
Inspired by the famous love story and movie – Mughal-e-Azam, this cake, pays a tribute to the glorious Black and White era of Indian Cinema. The film is widely considered to be a milestone of its genre
The movie tells about the love affair between Mughal Prince Salim (who went on to become Emperor Jahangir) and Anarkali, a court dancer. Salim pleads to marry Anarkali, but his father refuses, and imprisons her.Salim’s father, Emperor Akbar, disapproves of the relationship, which leads to a war between father and son. Anarkali gives herself up to save the prince’s life, and is condemned to death by being entombed alive between two brick walls.
Details: Satin Ice Fondant for most elements. Eyes sketch – using Petal dust+paint on wafer paper
