Cake mixing has become a celebratory event across India in recent times. It was first started in the 17th Century in Europe. During this time, lots of fruits and nuts were harvested and prepared which went into the making of traditional plum cake. Cake-mixing is an event in itself and brings people together in fun and frolic to surrounding one of our favourite delicacies – The Christmas Cake.
Speaking on the ceremony, Ajit Jose, General Manager, ibis Kolkata Rajarhat said, “The cake mixing is a Christmas tradition and a precursor to the occasion. It is a pre-requisite for settling the liquor in the mix of nuts, fruits and spices, covered with cinnamon. This ceremony is considered to be a harbinger of good fortune and joyous times. The entire team at ibis Kolkata Rajarhat is extremely thrilled to kick in the holiday mood with this fun activity.”
