This is the story of a genius cake which was conceived through a twitter brief.
Not just any cake. A Macaron cake!
It all started at about 11 in the morning when inspiration struck me and I tweeted Pooja Dhingra of le 15 Patisserie.
We then moved on to DM.
Now it is not good form to make private messages public but I think that we will make an exception here.
Wife's bd Tom. Wondered if one cd order a small macaron cake which I can pick at Phoenix this eve or too little time (Le 15 patisserie has an outlet at Palladium at Phoenix Mills Mumbai)
hmmm what time would you like it? If I start making it right now it could be ready by 6-7
6 at Phoenix? She has discovered a love for macarons after Cannes so anything small around that. A dark choc no alcohol cake? Not a party just 2 of us so small
ok done :) Any msg to be written on it?
‘Pick up the laundry’? :) let me think
The cake was ready when I went to Palladium at 6 pm. I did a double take when I saw it. Fitted the brief in a way I could not even imagine.
Did it work?
Well here’s the feedback that I tweeted to Pooja later:
