Ghaya Grand Hotel has created a Replica of the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque and Its Just as Beautiful

Approximately about hundred hours put in over one week. That is how much time it took chef Kaja Najmudeen to whip up an enormous replica of the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque, to mark Ramadan and Eid Al Fitr festivities. The icing structure weighs 60 kilograms.
 
 
Mr. Najmudeen, the pastry chef at the Ghaya Grand Hotel Dubai, measured their kitchen and estimated the size of the replica to be sure it could be carried out of the doors. The base on which the model sits is 100cm by 160cm.
 
 
“After a brainstorming session, he decided to make a replica of the Grand Mosque as it is an icon of Abu Dhabi,” Mr. Amgad Zaki the Executive Chef of Ghaya Grand Hotel said. “This is our gift to the people of the city on the occasion of Ramadan and Eid.”
 
 
The chef took pictures of the Grand Mosque, which he referred to in order to accurately depict every minute detail of the mosque’s facade. After putting in a day of work in the hotel’s kitchens during the day, he spent his nights creating the sculpture.
 
 
The icing structure is on display to the public at the lobby of Ghaya Grand Hotel. It has been on show since the first day of Ramadan and will be exhibited there until the end of Eid.
 
 
The chef used 50kg of icing sugar, 200 pieces of gelatin, 500 ml of egg white and 250ml of glucose to make this replica.
 
 
Chef Kaja Najmudeen, our pastry chef come with a little more 15 years of experience. He has previously worked at the Crown Plaza, Holiday inn Downtown and JW Marriott Hotel Dubai and excels in making lavish and intricate cakes.
