Just like any other festival the meaning of celebration changes over time. There has always been a point of time when we believed in Santa Claus and his gifts and then slowly with more books and knowledge things changed. This is a tale of two cities in West Bengal which celebrates Christmas and also the recipe of Christmas cake with Almond paste frosting
The beauty of baking is that more you get into it the more addictive it gets . Perhaps the last for the season – the carrot cake with cream cheese frosting was made on the christmas eve when 4 reindeer came to my home and Santa also came with loads of gifts for the kids .
The dry fruits had been soaked in Rum almost a month and half ago. In Kolkata, New Market is the area where one will find most of the baking items . We mention few of those stores here. The baking season continues at home with this egg less rich fruit cake .
