Incredible India – An International Cake Collaboration
Hosted by – Tina Scott Parashar
India has been the nurturer of tradition and culture for long. When so many cultures amalgamate together, a rich heritage is born. It is from that heritage that they draw inspiration. This collaboration, hosted by Tina Scott Parashar, is born out of the collective effort of over a hundred very talented cake artists who have come together to create visual works of brilliance through their favorite medium, sugar.This collaboration revealed on 11 November 2017 and showcased the beauty and cultural diversity of India. It was chosen to be a Global Sugar Artists Network country collaboration for India.
She also was the Editor of the Collab book and magazine released at the same time which includes all the collaboration cakes, recipes, interviews, and tutorials. Every cent that they raised from this collaboration so far through magazine advertisements (Indian Rupees 1,50,000 /€ 1959/ $2313) has been donated to the Prime Minister’s National Relief Fund (India). All the proceeds from the sale of the magazine will also be donated. This was possible also because they had a print sponsor Four Clover, who helped them get the book and magazine to print. To have worked so hard on this collaboration and raised this much for a good cause, makes Tina very proud of the work they have done and all that they have managed to achieve as the Incredible India Team.
They always wanted to do a grand project which involved a mix of international and Indian artists. This was also a platform to showcase the work of the upcoming sugar artists in the country as well as an opportunity for some renowned international artists to showcase their unique take on India. 108 artists came together and made this collaboration possible.
