Students of ‘Hotel Management and Catering Technology’ of LAD College, Nagpur, enhanced their culinary skills during the college’s annual cake fair – Confection Connection.

The cake fair was held on December 21st and 22nd at the Seminary Hills campus. While Dr Deepali Kotwal (Principal, LAD College) inaugurated the event, Dr Charuta Gajbhiye (Head of the Department), Dr Nandita Sapra, Vishakha Shahane, Amita Jharia and Dr Harsha Jharia organised the event.

Like each year, the department had organised the fair as a part of students’ curriculum in order to hone their managerial, entrepreneurial and culinary skills by assigning various departments of the fair like – costing, budgeting, marketing, public relations – to them.

During the fair, the students prepared mouth-watering delicacies like pastries, cupcakes, pizzas and kathi rolls. What grabbed everybody’s attention were delicacies like pita pockets and spice cakes as they’d been introduced for the first time during the fair. As the cake fair coincided with the arrival of Christmas, students left no stone unturned in making their guests celebrate the day with great festive fervour.

Third year students of Hotel Management department – Nikita Chaudhary and Radhika Jagtap (kitchen management), Vaishnavi Badhe and Glory Pandit (public relations), Sushmita Sinha and Hemlata Patil (food and beverage department), Komal Maraskolhe and Shivani Tembhurne (decor and housekeeping), Bhairavi Shrivastava and Priyanaka Batho (sales and marketing) – successfully executed their respective responsibilities to the tee.
