The word Christmas starts with the letter C and it encompasses the other three C’s to complete the full square. Cakes, cheese, and candles are the three things without which no Christmas celebration can feel completion. Cakes are baked with love in every home and used as special gifts for friends and relatives in Christmas. Candles of many types and designs are bought to pray during Christmas and also as an element to decorate home. Cheese are also one of those things that are either made at home or bought from shops as a gift or to serve the guests. Here today, I would let you know some facts about Christmas special cakes, cheese, and candles.
Christmas Celebration with Cakes:
Perhaps, mince pie is the oldest form of Christmas cake or pudding and that used to be a lovely mixture of poultry (finely chopped), rabbit, pheasant, and partridge. Later on sugar, raisins, oranges, apples, and raisins were added and with flow of time it became a sweet dessert item known to be Christmas pudding or cake.
The famous English Christmas pudding was called Hackin and with more sweets being added to it, it became a plum pudding. Now we also get the yummy plum cakes as a Christmas cake to serve our friends and relatives.
If you want a traditional and authentic Christmas Fruit cake, you have to leave the rich and creamy cakes containing freshly cut fruits over it. What you need is a cake, with generous amount of raisins,dates, nuts and candied fruits dipped in good amount of rum or brandy.
