Where does one find the Pentagon, a pagoda and Spider-man all under one roof? At the annual cake exhibition, of course.

Several imaginatively crafted cakes and sugar craft are on display at the 38th Annual Cake Exhibition at the St. Joseph’s Indian High School Grounds.

Fifty people laboured over the 16-foot Pentagon for 30,000 hours or 60 days, using 5 tonnes of sugar.

Lakshman Kanti, a baker, whose group has made six wedding cakes, sugar models of cuckoo clocks, pagodas and clowns, says that participating in an event like this is “really an honour”.

Radha V., a visitor, said: “It’s really creative work.” Mohit, a Class 10 student from the St. Joseph’s Indian High School, said: “I love cakes and it’s very exciting to see they can be made in all these sort of shapes.”

After the exhibition, organisers said, the sugar models are melted and donated to factories and to the needy.

The exhibition is open from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. till December 30.
