Cake mixing event at Sheraton

As the winter sets in, it reminds us that Christmas is round the corner. An invite for a languid lunch with sparkling cocktails and promises of an afternoon filled with fun activities had us singing songs, entering a salad making competition, dancing and mixing bottles of Old Monk Rum and beer into the dry fruits and loads of butter. We donned our Chef hats and our blue gloves and had a time of our life. The charming Benita Sharma, the GM WelcomHotel Sheraton pointed that the most important ingredients of cake mixing are love, friendship and togetherness and we couldn’t agree more!!

Keeping the tradition intact, I have been part of the annual cake mixing event held for selected few ladies in town since 2012. Check my previous posts about the event 2012 and here, 2014 and 2015. Last year maybe I was travelling. The event is organised impeccably. There are games, live singing, grand buffet with most exotic dishes, cocktails, nail art, tarot card reader and so much more. Today I won in musical chairs. See the picture below. It is rare for me to win something. So even if it is musical chairs with ladies, I am so happy.
I had a ball at the event and am already looking forward to the next one.

I wore a tussar saree today. I have worn it here earlier. The ghicha pallu and border bring out the beauty in it. The pallu also has influence from Ikkat. Today I teamed it with a different blouse than the previous time. I think blouse and saree should be treated like two separate pieces of attire just the way we treat skirt and top. We do not try to match the top perfectly with our skirt from the same fabric and colour. We mismatch, contrast and colour coordinate. Similarly, apply this to saree and blouse.
The necklace that I wore was done by me. I created it from a wooden door hanging that I bought in Varanasi.
Looking back at my previous posts, I feel I have changed a lot in these years- both externally and internally. Do you agree? What are your thoughts?


  1. Kiran, you looked amazing in that tussar saree, but I love your necklace most. Where can I buy that? I want to gift it to my mom

    1. Thanks. As you can read in the post, The necklace that I wore was done by me. I created it from a wooden door hanging that I bought in Varanasi.
