Overwhelmed by the sudden buzz around her cake, 22-year-old baker Warda Zahid said the fame is totally unexpected. “Actually I was planning to make a figure of Imran Khan in PM’s black sherwani and launch it online, since that would be fitting the political circumstances of the country. But before I could proceed with that, the old one caught attention,” she added.

After the post went viral, her inbox is flooded with messages and many are keen to order the Imran Khan cake now. “I’ve gotten loads of inquiries, and people say that they’ll confirm the order once the oath-taking ceremony is scheduled and announced officially,” the self-taught baker added.

The cake, weighing around 4kg can be made in numerous flavours as wished by fans and would cost around 4900 in Pakistani currency. She added that before the swearing-in ceremony scheduled for August 11, she will come up with another Imran Khan cake with him donning a sherwani.
