This baker in Dubai makes ‘jail-themed’ cake to celebrate Nawaz Sharif’s conviction
DUBAI: Former prime minister Nawaz Sharif has been convicted in the Avenfield case, but his detractors seem to still rejoice the court verdict in their own creative style.
Sharif was sentenced to 10 years imprisonment in a corruption case last week. The three-time PM was found guilty in the Avenfield case — pertaining to the ownership of four flats in the posh Avenfield House in London, charges which were revealed in the Panama Papers scandal.
Expressing her pleasure on the court decision, a baker celebrated the occasion with a Nawaz Sharif ‘behind the bar’ cake.
Khadija Ammad, a freelance cake artist made a cake featuring the ousted PM etched in monochrome prison dress on the cake, with “Gone” written as a message.
In an interview, the cake creator, who is originally from Pakistan, said it was her spouse Ammad Ahmed Khan’s plan. “It was my husband’s idea as he was very excited after knowing about Nawaz Sharif’s verdict. So, he suggested to me to design a cake showing the ex-PM behind the bars,” said Ammad.
Giving details about the dessert, the baker said it was 3kg in weight and a vanilla-flavoured moist cake with paraline sauce filling. Of course, the quirky cake was bought for 300 Diram (Rs 5616, at current exchange rate) quickly by another Pakistani man.
