Bangalore, August 14 2019: Young Indian chefs from Whitecaps, an international school of pastry have joined to celebrate the 73rd Independence Day in their own unique way: a chocolate showpiece, dedicated to brave hearts and the soldiers who protect us.
Led byChef Akshay and Chef Rohit from Whitecaps, the showpiece cake creation is primarily made using couverture chocolate from Callebaut which contains cocoa butter, marshmallows using dark chocolate, corn syrup, water, sugar, liquid glucose, gelatine, and rice crispies.
Weighing over 16 kilos and sprayed with edible food colors for a metallic finish, this showpiece took over 35 hours of craftsmanship and is internally supported by a skeletal structure made from a threaded rod, covered with food graded aluminum foil.The choice of color and representation of imagery has been carefully chosen to ensure it heroes those, who have given ultimate sacrifice, and all those who continue to do so even today for India’s values and beliefs.
Chef Arvind Prasad, Co-Founder, and Executive Pastry Chef said, “I was enthused by the energy of these young chefs and guided them throughout to express their patriotic fervor in a totally standout manner. Such occasions recharge your creative skills and I am glad I am part of it”.
