I'm delighted to share my newest confectionery find of Bollywood proportions. I'm still in awe at the exquisite mystery of these henna-inspired petits fours. These delicate and ornate little cakes are the epitome of haut craftsmanship. The decorator, Sandy Patangay, employed her henna tattoo designs and skills to master her new cake decorating business Crème Delicious. She's gone on to be featured in the likes of Oprah magazine and MarthaStewart.com. I'm dying to get my hands (and mouth) on one in-store, but for now they are only available online at creme-delicious.com. They are so beautiful in fact, that the company ought to put a card in the delivery box saying "Yes, you're allowed to eat these."
After tearing my teary eyes and watering mouth away from her website, I couldn't help but think of new fashion trends I keep seeing... inspired by Bollywood. But in actuality, these fleeting western fashion trends are inspired by something much more deeply rooted - that is the ancient cultural artistry of India (historically henna designs can be traced to Morocco and throughout the Ottoman Empire as well.) So now, Christian Louboutin and Karl Lagerfeld at Chanel are jumping on the bandwagon and I'm not sure what took them so long...
