Henna Cakes

Sandy Patangay traditionally applies henna tattoos to Indian wedding parties and guests of parties of all kinds. But she's recently branched out with an extraordinary new company Creme-Delicious. She re-creates her intricate henna designs on perfectly delicious little heart cakes. This is how it's done. First her baker creates the chocolate, vanilla or red velvet creations covered in white fondant. Sandy colors each cake to achieve the vibrant Indian hues she seeks. The cakes are cream-infused with white chocolate, strawberry or chocolate hazelnut. Then she painstakingly decorates each cake with piping, sugar dusting powder and sugar beads. The individual serving cakes can take up to a half-hour to decorate and are as beautiful as they are delicious. I think they would make a wonderful wedding favor, or simply an exquisite wedding dessert. Very special.
