Indian wedding ceremonies offer the perfect excuse for us to explore our sweet tooth. The sheer variety of sweets available across India is mind boggling in terms of the ingredients used, the colour, texture and the garnishing that tastes nothing less than ambrosia.
In the Northern states, it’s a common perception that the sweetness in the matrimonial alliance in directly proportional to the amount of sweets distributed on the wedding ceremony. That’s why, sweets like Ladoos, Kaju katlis, Gulab jamuns, Rasmalai, Imartis, Khoya burfis etc are distributed on every event of a wedding ceremony. Packaged sweets are distributed among guests as a goodwill gesture by the parents of the bride and the groom.
The Sindhis have a tradition of turning out an eclectic range of sweets from simple ingredients like white pumpkins, red pumpkins, semolina, wheat, gram flour etc. garnished with dry fruits and icing sugar and flavoured with powdered flower petals, rose water, kewra essence etc.
Towards the east the state of West Bengal is popular with it’s huge array of traditional and contemporary sweets. Rasagollas, kalakand, channar jelabi, kheer kadam, Mohini bhog, Raaj bhog, Kheer kalash well the list is endless! Nowadays people suffering from diabetes or other sugar associated maladies can gorge on a platter full of sugar-free sweets too.
To the west we have the fabulous states of Gujarat and Rajasthan who take a place of pride in the country’s sweet making tradition. The mouth watering Shrikhand, Son papdi, Badam katlis, Pethas, Kesari Phirni, Gujia, Malai Kulfi, sweets made from freshly ground almonds, pistachio nuts ,walnuts etc topped with saffron strands are enough to tickle the taste buds of any living soul.

It goes without doubt, that, on a wedding day all eyes are fixed on the wedding couple. After that it’s the wedding cake. Though traditionally a western concept yet it has found strong roots in modern Indian wedding ceremonies. The wedding cake symbolizes the essence of a cosmopolitan environment in a present day global village where fusion culture is the name of the game.
To sum up the above sentiment in the wedding cake would be really delightful to guests and hosts alike. A three tier or four tier cake with a traditional Gujarati wedding couple as it’s topping would be very interesting. Likewise a cake made of chocolate with a double layer of marzipan and large saffron floral patterns running in circles across the length of the cake would give it a touch of sacredness associated with the saffron colour in Hinduism.
A velvety cake with delicious colourful syrups filled in small pockets within the cake with powdered nuts and dry fruits in different segments will truly be wonderful. For a Royal feel, a cake designed like a huge two –tier jewellery box with embedded colourful gemstones all over the body with real gold dust for surface decoration will make the most unique wedding cake with a royal touch.
Actually, the decoration on a cake differentiates a wedding cake from cakes made on other occasions. So,a detailed understanding of what goes well with a wedding cake has to be infused by an experienced craftsman into his masterpiece. We feel that there should be no room for regularity in a wedding cake and it should be as unique as possible.
