Less than a week ago marked the day Imran Khan and his party won the much anticipated General Elections in Pakistan. Not only was it a massive win for Imran Khan’s party PTI, but also a major feat even in former stronghold Punjab for the PML-N.
The slogan of change or tabdeeli that came out these elections may have much to do with the Panama Papers case in which the Sharifs offshore businesses and properties were mentioned, and then later Nawaz Sharif’s arrest for which there was also a cake that you can see here.
Amidst the optimism and fear of new government, this cake for a PTI fan started gaining attention on social media
It shows Khan standing at the podium with his hand on the heart. In his signature white shalwar kameez and PTI red and green patta, our new Prime Minister does look quite dashing even as a cake.
Those are some mad fondant carving and figurine skills, btw
Look at how much he resembles the figurine in real life
They even got the hair and wrinkles on point
But the question is where is this cake from and how can we get it made?
This cake was made a little over a year ago by a bakery in Karachi called Once Upon A Cake. They specialize in fondant and buttercream cakes and cupcakes and have been in the business for around 4 years now.
Done in fondant, the inspiration for the figurine of Imran Khan definitely comes from one of his jalsas. He has been oft seen sporting the same outfit at a number of rallies and is has somewhat become his signature. So anyone who sees this and isn’t able to recognize by face can always tell it’s him.
Whilst having a word with the makers of the cake, they mentioned the cake was made a year ago and their fondant sculpting skills have only gotten better. So we can only imagine what they can conjure up for you if you ask for a figure on top of your cake.
If nothing comes to imagination, here’s some of their work:
