Star Cake Maker of the Week May 26th 2017

Star Cake Maker of the Week May 26th 2017

This week our Star Cake Maker is the week is someone I first came across a few years ago when she won a competition at Pretty Witty Cakes. She has since gone on to make some even more astonishing cakes as you will see below:


Prachi Dhabal Deb

Now, Prachi's nomination makes my job very easy as I don't even need to use words to explain how amazing her work is. She is predominantly a royal icer and her work is exquisite.  What is even more amazing is she only started out a few years ago.  If she is this good now...imagine what she will be like in a few more years.....!

Prachi is from Maharashtra, India which is not far from Mumbai on the West Coast.  And if you know me well, you know I am a BIG fan of India having spent quite a lot of time there when I was a teenager. I am therefore delighted to see the explosion of cake artists in India in recent years.  


Prachi's work has super attention to detail.  She is also super friendly (if you are her friend on facebook you will know what I mean)....indeed, as well as for her cake work, that is one of the reasons one nominee wrote in to nominate her for Star Cake Maker of the week.  

Prachi's business is called Cake Decor India. Her facebook page is here and her website is here 

Prachi's Cakes

The first thing I always notice when I see Prachi's cake is the immense detail and delicate nature. I often wonder how long they take her to make as they are so detailed. 

You see what I mean?! They are intensely interesting to observe and look at and make you wonder how she puts them all together

I absolutely adore this cake! The colours are just so amazing, the detail beautiful and fascinating.  

Then just when I think i have seen my favourite, I see a similar cake to the one above but with new colours!

Prachi does a lot of royal icing work but she changes her style too.  For example, compare the cakes above with the one below which has a completely different feel but is still stunningly beautiful

When I was looking at Prachi's work, the royal icing work just got better and better. Her use of colours is brilliant. 

This cake is so amazing - look at the close up detail...

I have been following Prachi's work for a couple of years now and the more I see of her experiments, the more I want to see.  Have a look at this stunning bird

I am a big fan of colour as many people know and I just love the way Prachi manipulates colour to work so well in the cakes so they are bright but also delicate at the same time. 

I tried to choose a 'favourite cake' for this blog post but I really can't say which is my favourite cake. Every time I think I have found it, I find another that I like even more. One such example is the lilac cake below. I think this is pure perfection on a cake.

For me, looking at Prachi's cakes brings back some very happy memories of bygone years when I spent such a wonderful time in her home country. One day I will go back and take my children there to show them the delights of India and its people.  In the meantime, I shall continue enjoying the wonderful artistry of cake artists like Prachi Dhabal Deb. 


The above are just a few of my favourite cakes from Prachi's work. Why not go and look at more of her work, give her a like on facebook or visit her website. You will not have a wasted journey as she makes some awesome cakes.  Here are the links:

I am sure you can see why Prachi deserves to be this week's Star Cake Maker of the Week and why she has been nominated by you for this award. 

Congratulations Prachi on being awarded this week and for making so many people smile with your cakes. 


What is the Star Cake Maker of the Week Award ?

It is an  award that we have created to honour cake makers who we feel are truly awesome, inspirational, down right talented or just super duper humans...

How do you get chosen?

Each week, Suzi will chose someone that has come to her attention - perhaps on facebook or instagram, through the media or elsewhere.  But also because someone may have nominated them by emailing in. 

If you think someone (or you) should be awarded a Star Cake Maker of the week badge, email with the subject field "Star Cake Maker of the Week" and let us know who, why and what you think is totally awesome about them and their cake work. We will choose one person each week to feature in the Friday Freebie Newsletter.
