World’s most expensive cake: Dangal themed cake cost Rs 25 lakh!


As a symbolic tribute to the Indian Independence day, a bakery from Dubai made an edible cake worth Rs. 25 lakh. And hail all Aamir fans, because the next thing will make you jump off your seats. The cake features our most beloved actor Aamir Khan in his Dangal avatar. The cake, which is worth a whooping $40,000, or roughly 25 lakh rupees, has a stern-looking Aamir Khan towering over his on-screen daughters Geeta and Babita Phogat wrestling in a traditional akhada, or wrestling arena.

“The idea was to create a design that commemorated India’s Independence Day while simultaneously honoring the achievements of its brave people,” Dominic Joseph Samuel, Broadway Bakery’s head chef tells NDTV. “We felt that the characters (in Dangal) and the story of their struggle gave the cake the soul that it needed…The client being a feminist also loved the pro-feminist themes surrounding the movie.”

Broadway Bakery says that 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, the bakery claims.
