VISAKHAPATNAM: When one can have his/her cake and eat it too, what more can they ask for? The participants in the cake eating competition organised jointly by Fusion Foods and Superhits 93.5 Red FM had a gala time gulping down the cakes one after the other in their bid to win some exciting prizes.
A 12-year-old girl finished four-and-a-half cakes in 60 seconds flat. One youth finished five and grabbed a sixth and gulped it just three seconds. While the participants were downing the cakes one after the other in their bid to outdo their competitors, the onlookers had fun cheering them. “We started the cake eating competition five years ago to create awareness among food lovers and dispel the myth that eating more cakes would result in obesity. Our cakes are made of milk cream and they contain less calories unlike some of the fast foods and oily stuff like ‘mirapakaya bajji',” Fusion Foods proprietor Harshavardhan Reddy said.
“There is a marked improvement in cake eating among people in the city. In the past, the participants could eat a maximum of two cakes in 60 seconds, now it has more than doubled. There were only five rounds last year and this year we have 10 rounds,” he said.
