her customers often ask for new and unique cake creations.
An Indian baker has taken a unique approach in raising awareness on COVID-19 by creating a cake.
Hemangi Patil is from Surat, Gujarat, and she decided to raise awareness about the virus following the cancellation of an anniversary celebration.
Current advice imposed by the government is to stay indoors and to maintain good hand hygiene.
One way that the virus is spread is by shaking hands. This cake informs people to take a different approach when greeting others.
The two-kilogram cake features a man and a woman. Both are wearing masks and in a ‘namaste’ pose, highlighting that it is another way of greeting someone.
Hemangi said that she has been baking for five years and over the years, she has worked on several innovative concepts.
As a result, customers have ordered cakes for a number of reasons.
She revealed that her customers often ask for new and unique cake creations.
In relation to the Coronavirus awareness cake, one customer had ordered a cake for a first-anniversary celebration.
However, the party was cancelled due to the virus.
This had angered the wife but Hemangi promised to bake a cake that would cheer the occasion up.
The Indian baker said that she would make a cake that would highlight a message and that would be memorable.
After the cake was created, the customers loved the design and the awareness it was presenting.
The cake was made using 500 grams of mixed fruit, 250 grams of cream, 250 grams of sugar, 375 grams of flour, 250 grams of whipped cream and 20 grams of baking soda.
The cake was a unique way of highlighting measures to take in order to reduce the spread of the Coronavirus.
One high-profile measure that was taken in India was the Janta Curfew.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi came up with the curfew in a bid to combat the spread of the Coronavirus.
It was essentially a self-curfew in order to test social isolation. The concept was implemented on March 22, 2020.
PM Modi appealed to all citizens to stay indoors from 7 am to 9 pm to reduce the risk of spreading the deadly virus.
He also requested them to stand on balconies and near windows to clap and ring bells to praise the emergency services who are on the frontline fighting against COVID-19.
In a Tweet, PM Modi had said: “Let us all be a part of this curfew, which will add tremendous strength to the fight against the COVID-19 menace.
“The steps we take now will help in the times to come.”
Many people abided by the rules and stayed at home. A lot of citizens stood on balconies and cheered for healthcare services.
