Welcome to another edition of BindiWeddings.
The ten-day countdown to my wedding extravaganza has begun. It's day #8 and I feel fine; no cold feet, no nightmares, and even no STRESS marks! (Phew!) I guess it's because I am so confident that the man to whom I am soon-to-be wedded is truly the ONE for me. After all, he is my best friend and the love of my life. And...I know he feels the same way. :)
My friends and family are quite surprised by my state of tranquility. They make me wonder, "Should I be nervous? Do I really know what I am getting myself getting into?" Obviously, I can't predict the future but I do know that things can only get BETTER from here on out.
So if you are bride or groom-to-be, think positively. Be confident in your decisions and KNOW that everything will be OK. And don't sweat the petty stuff. Just enjoy your wedding day because before you know it, it'll be over. Luckily, I have two. ;)
Until next time...
Peace & Love,
Uniquely Yours | Distinctively South Asian

|Wedding cakes in New York with an Indian touch|
|One of the highlights of planning my wedding a decade ago was choosing the cake. I had attended countless weddings where I felt that this standard dessert was an afterthought in both design and taste: the inside was usually a dry yellow while the exterior was a coat of sickly sweet buttercream with an uninspired design. I was determined to have a decadent sweet ending that would be memorable in taste and presentation and would indulge my love for chocolate.
Since my wedding was a traditional Hindu event, I wanted it to look Indian, but at the time, notable Indian cake designers seemed rare (at least in the New York City area). So I turned to Sylvia Weinstock, a well-known cake creator, who came up with a three-layer design with gold and pink hues to match my lengha and fulfilled my chocolate fantasy with an incredibly moist fudge interior.
A decade later, as the services for Indian weddings have increased significantly in the United States, several talented cake designers are showcasing work inspired by India. Here are three in the New York City area who are turning the wedding cake...
