What would you prefer for your birthday treat? Chocolate or caramel? Biscoff or banoffee? Perhaps you love all these options and don't want to miss out on any of them on your special day. Well, if you are as lucky as Shaheen Bhatt, you may get all these flavours and textures packed into your birthday cake. Alia Bhatt's sister received a pleasant birthday surprise from pastry chef Pooja Dhingra. Social media updates show that Shaheen received two scrumptious cakes on her day. One cake looked chocolaty, studded with macaroons and drizzled with some caramel. The second cake was a fusion of biscoff and banoffee. Shaheen thanked the chef for "making all my birthday dreams come true since 2010." She added, "This year, the dream was a banoffee plus biscoff (bancoff) pie. I am crying, Pooja Dhingra."
A banoffee is an English pie made with bananas, cream and caramel sauce. It also has a base of crumbled biscuits and butter. Whereas a biscoff refers to a type of cookie. Pooja Dhingra clarified that the second cake was a fusion of these two delicacies while bringing a wholesomeness with cream and honeycomb texture.
Take a look at the first cake:
