Ishha Jaggi from India - Interview
I am Ishha Jaggi a sugar artist from New Delhi India, the capital city. I started my journey 2.5 years ago and since then creating new creations was my passion.
I have been awarded as best baker and my cake on theme Moulin Rouge was awarded as most innovative cake 2017.
My venture's name is Ishha's Cakeworld. Its my third child after my daughter and son. It is 2.5 years old and has created almost 750 different designs of cakes. I try making new fusion flavours to give beauty with sweetness. I have been blessed to be followed and loved by so many and want to thank each of them for understanding my art & my hardwork.
I have participated in multiple collabrations and feel honoured to be a part of them. My work has been featured in few top sugar magazines and appreciated by the industry. Though my journey is still very new and has a long way to go but I love the cake world. My ambition is one day to create a masterpiece which lives upto my expectations - which are really high.
I would suggest to all the upcoming artists to believe in yourself and work hard and keep practicing because success doesn't have any shortcuts. And the more you practice the better the result will be. It is a really beautiful world of sweet creations so love every bit of it.
My inspiration is the Tomb of Bibi Jiwandi, Uch e Sharif. It is one of the five monuments in Uch Sharif that are on the tentative list of UNESCO's World Heritage sites. The shrine was built in 1493 by an Iranian prince Dilshad for Bibi Jawindi who was the great granddaughter of Jahaniyan Jashangast, a famous sufi saint. The exterior of the building is octagonal in shape with 3 tiers with the top one supporting a dome while the interior is circular. Both interior and exterior are richly decorated with Islamic scriptures, carved timber and bright blue and white mosaic tiles known as faience (is the conventional name in English for fine tin-glazed pottery on a buff earthenware body). I loved the colors, textures and incorporating them in my piece. I am using Saracino modelling paste, fondants, magic colors, gum paste, air brush techniques.
