Like every year Soaltee Crowne Plaza hosted a cake-mixing ceremony to celebrate the joyous spirit of early Christmas on 14 November. Led by the Executive Chef the event was joined by invited guests who mixed varieties of ingredients and spices for the festive cake.
The ingredients included an array of dry fruits like raisins, black currants, prunes, glazed dates, cherries, candid orange, lemon rinds and nuts like cashews, pistachios and almonds. These are mixed with large quantities of liquor, fresh juices and honey. Freshly ground spices are also added and tossed till the fruits and nuts are well coated and stored. Before the arrival of Christmas, these soaked fruits and nuts are mixed with cake batter and baked to a heavenly perfection.
