Food & Cake fest receives overwhelming response

The Food and Cake Festival, being held as part of Mysuru Winter Festival, at Nanjaraj Bahadur Choultry here has been attracting huge crowds. A majority of the participants are youths, particularly college students.

There are nearly 60 stalls, displaying a variety of cakes, organic food products, snacks and traditional food items. Leading bakeries have displayed decorative cakes, theme-based cakes, and plum cakes. The 'Wedding Gown' cake displayed by Aroma Bakery, is a major attraction among visitors.

M Harshita, a college student, along with her friends, visited the festival and enjoyed a variety of cakes and a range of food items.

"This is not the first food festival we are visiting, but, every food festival is different for us. We (friends) taste a majority of the food items displayed in the festival. We purchase a variety of items and share among ourselves so that we can taste most of them," said Harshita.

The festival is not only a boon for the visitors, but, it helps the stallkeepers to popularise their business. A stallkeeper said that they have been doing good business in the festival and the visitors are asking for cakes and pastries. The baker said that many people have placed an order for cakes for the New Year celebration.

A visitor said, compared to Dasara food festival, the price of the products is affordable. The authorities should follow the same during Dasara festival so that the people can purchase necessary items.

In order to add more colour to the event, the authorities have organised a cake eating competition for the visitors. Shakuntala, a homemaker, won the first place in the competition organised on Thursday. On Friday, a competition for college students has been organised.

Senior Deputy Director for Food and Civil Supplies Ka Rameshwarappa said that the event is receiving an overwhelming response from the people.

He said, "Thousands of people visited the stalls and the crowd was high on Wednesday evening. The DD said more number of people are expected to visit the festival on Saturday, the last day of the festival.
