Shabnam lives in North London with her husband and their two children. She learned to bake in her grandparent's Mumbai home, sneaking into their kitchen with her sister to bake.
'I am a big fan of The Queen,' said Shabnam. 'Her pragmatism, her steadfastness, her feminism, her dedication. She's a role model for me. She has embraced a multiracial, multicultural society, and I wanted my cake to reflect that as well as the Commonwealth.
'When it comes to this pudding, the whole is greater than the sum of its parts, sweet, smooth, cool, crunchy, velvety, it engages the palate on all levels – a pudding truly fit for The Queen.'
