Cake mixing ceremony at Crowne Plaza Nairobi Airport
The ritual of cake mixing sets the mood for Christmas, a sentiment that was echoed at the recent cake mixing ceremony at Crowne Plaza Nairobi Airport. Food enthusiasts, guests and hotel staff rolled up their sleeves ready to soak themselves in the merriment of blending dried fruits and nuts with assorted spirits.
The stirring ceremony dates back to centuries ago, and swanky hotels such as the Airport Hotel hold the ceremony as a way to usher the holidays. The first step towards making the cake is the mixing process, which will then at the end of the month be used in the making of the traditional plum cake.
