Asian Express hosts event-packed night to mark the end of 2014

The glitterati of Yorkshire and beyond were out in full force as guests came together to mark the end of 2014 with a big bang.

IMG_5944_2The star-studded 3rd annual ‘Asian Express Year End Party’, which has been dubbed as ‘the must-go-to party of the year’, witnessed sensational live performances from Kanika Kapoor, Hunterz, Navin Kundra, Jay Status and others as Ameet Chana (former Eastenders star) played host to the 400 guests.

Held at the Cedar Court hotel in Bradford on 27th December, the year-end-bash set social media networks ablaze with guests sharing their experiences on the night.

Along with fine-dining from Aagrah restaurants, the party also broke a Yorkshire record: the largest photocake ever baked in the region, was presented to Nadim Hanif, Managing Director of Asian Express courtesy of Regal Bakery.

Mr Hanif commented: “The Asian has been delivering events for the last three years and we are committed to continue bringing high-quality entertainment to Yorkshire. We are committed to putting this region on the map for top-end events.

“The feedback we have had from people of all faiths and backgrounds on this party in particular has been phenomenal and highly encouraging. Look out for more events coming this year. “I’d personally like to thank our sponsors iBoardTouch, Bradford College, Sonic, SSC, EastzEast, Zurich Safe, Smart Vehicle Options, Regal Foods, Bradford Plaza, Aagrah and Cedar Court for their loyal support.”

Yorkshire’s biggest photocake served up by Asian Express

The Asian Express New Year’s Bash drew in some of the biggest talents from around the world last month yet the ‘sweetest’ surprise of all perhaps came in an even tastier form altogether.

A mammoth cream cake, measuring 54inch by 30inch (or 1,620 square inch), was unveiled on the night with the bespoke creation baked-up by Regal food group’s ‘Cake Emporium by Faz’.

Taking a day to create, the final production is the biggest photocake the bakers have ever produced and believed to be the largest in Yorkshire.

Almost 200 eggs, 11kg of Sugar and 11kg of flour were cooked up with around 5kg of butter – plus some secret ingredients – before the final decorations were put in place.

Faz Ali, speaking on behalf of Regal, said it was certainly a cake which wouldn’t be forgotten.

“We don’t get these types of orders very often but we knew we had the skills and expertise here to make something really special,” he said.

“We were told that the party needed a cake to stand out and this one certainly did that.”

He added: “I have never seen a photocake that big before and it took a whole day to make from planning it all out to the final product.”

Officially cut by headlining act, Kanika Kapoor, guests on the night were able to sample the cake during the night, a fitting dessert for the memorable occasion.
