A dream wedding is not complete without a dream cake. We found a Pune-based cake artist, who is also a recipient of the prestigious Cake Masters Award, UK. Meet Prachi Dhabal Deb, who bakes the most stunning cakes with intricate royal icing embroidery, inspired by Swiss castles, Mughal architecture, French fountains and more.
A former financial analyst by profession, Prachi’s baking journey started back in 2005. Her passion to perfect the art of royal icing, an extremely intricate decorating technique, took her to many parts of the world. An alumna of Cake Expression & Sugarcraft Malaysia and Sir Eddie Spence MBE from London, Prachi has been extensively featured in various global platforms including Cake Central, the Cake Magazine by ACDN and World’s Best Wedding Cakes” by Amy Doak.
Prachi is the owner of Cake Decor India and her clientele boasts of individuals to event management companies, across India. Coming back to her exquisite portfolio of cakes, Prachi tells us how every tiny detail is hand-piped with royal icing. Her creations are reflections of fairytales in cream and delicate roses.
From a gingerbread themed birthday cake to a marble palace inspired from a book by Herman Hueg, Prachi’s designs will make your jaws drop hard. The colourful floral embroidery in royal icing combined with red butterflies, give this wedding cake an extremely exotic touch. What’s more? She can bake the same one or any other cake in eggless option too.
