Mix it, to fix it

Mix it, to fix it
The countdown to Christmas has begun and Sheraton New Delhi celebrates the age old ceremony of cake mixing, to cherish the bonhomie of Christmas celebrations (or Christmas time) on 8 November. 

This is a tradition of mixing dry fruits with spices and liquor well in advance before Christmas so that the ingredients can develop a distinct aroma and flavour.

An array of chopped raisins, glazed red cherries, pistachios, walnuts, black currants, dates, dried apricots and figs was mixed with spices such as ground green cardamom, cinnamon, nutmeg, mace, cloves will go into a huge cauldron along with endless bottles of spirits like red wine, cognac, rum and whiskey.

This mixture will be allowed to soak for a few weeks and kept away before baking into cakes and puddings. The event will be followed by a lavish brunch and other fun activities including Grape Crushing.
