Cake mixing is one of the most awaited traditional that marks the onset of Christmas Season. It is believed that mixing of dry fruits ahead of time brings richness to the cake as well as it serves as a great opportunity for families and friends to come together. Keeping this in mind, ibis Kolkata Rajarhat recently celebrated its First Cake Mixing Ceremony in the esteemed presence of Mrs. Sanjukta Bose, Director, International Institute of Hotel Management (IIHM), Ms. Aakanksha Manglani, Mrs. India Worldwide East 2018, Mr. Mizan Uddin, Hotel Manager, Mr. Nikhil Malhotra, Head of Sales and Executive Chef Karunamay Chakraborty, ibis Kolkata Rajarhat along with other eminent dignitaries.
Cake mixing has become a celebratory event across India in recent times. This is not the home-baked cakes and muffins and pastries one is talking about or the tarts and the chocolate cakes from cake shops. Cake-mixing is an event in itself and brings people together in fun and frolic to surrounding one of our favorite delicacies – The Christmas Cake. Christmas is no fun without the traditional Christmas cake. To mark the birth of Jesus Christ, people organize cake mixing ceremonies to spread the warmth of the festive season. People from different walks of life come together for this occasion to celebrate and enjoy.
Chef Karunamay Chakraborty, Executive Chef, ibis Kolkata Rajarhat said “The cake mixing is a Christmas tradition dating back to many years and is also 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. Christmas fun starts with this ceremony which is considered to be a harbinger of good fortune and joyous times.”
