After ‘food porn’, here comes ‘dessert porn’! Mumbaikars are in for a debauchery of their sweet tooth with over 100 desserts on offer at the Dessert Garden being held this weekend at High Street Phoenix. From Turkish Baklavas, French Entremets, Centre-filled Cupcakes, Cookiewiches, Meringues, Waffle Sticks and Freak Shakes to Donuts, Marshmallow Sundaes, Chocolate Éclairs, Cookies, Dessert Jars, Candy Floss…phew, the list is endless. For the health conscious, there are also varieties of the sugar-free, gluten-free kind. Besides, if you aren’t salivating already, there’s going to be a 7 ft giant Macaroon Tower along with live dessert installations such as a Cupcake Car and Chandelier Cake.
Explains founder of the event Nikita Harisinghani, “Dessert Garden is the only event which is an all-desserts festival that takes place on such a big scale. We make a conscious effort to make Dessert Garden a true dessert heaven for all dessert lovers. This year, we have 50-plus dessert brands showcasing some of the best desserts especially curated for the event.”
Don’t just take her word for it – as they say, the proof is in the pudding!
