What is a Cake Mixing Ceremony?

For those who might be unfamiliar with this popular Christmas tradition, let us take a trip back to the middle ages, 17th Century to be exact, towards Europe… Preserving food was a bit of a task during those days when the modern refrigerator systems were not invented yet, so as a means to have healthy and good Christmas cakes, dried fruits and nuts once mixed with flour and eggs were soaked into wine or other alcohol well ahead in time (probably a month or 2 before) ready to be baked when Christmas comes. This tradition also marks the arrival of the harvest season.

What began as an intimate family affair that symbolizes unity and hard work, is no longer restricted to Christian families alone. The tradition spread across the world being passed over from generation to generation, and now major hotels host such ceremonies as a means to bring people together and pay tribute to the elder generations.
