Green Park Hotel Cake mixing ceremony 2019 Event

Green Park Hotel Cake mixing ceremony 2019 Event

As the festive season approaches, the staff & management of GreenPark, like every year
would be celebrating the traditional fruit mixing ceremony at the Hotel Lobby on the 20th of
November 2019.

Every year, the fruit mixing ceremony is held across Hotels as a mark of the festive season’s
beginning. The stirring ceremony is part of an age-old Christmas tradition of cake mixing and
one of making wishes for the New Year. The ingredients of the festive fruit cake are mixed
with wine and liquor in advance so that the ingredients can develop aroma and taste.
Originally a family affair, it is for many years celebrated within organizations to spread
camaraderie and goodwill.

Speaking on the history of cake mixing ceremony, it dates back to 17th century in Europe.

The ceremony marked the arrival of the harvest season. During this time, lots of fruits and nuts
were harvested and used in the making of the traditional plum cake.

This was saved till the
next harvest, with the hope that it would bring yet another fruitful year.

The sugar content of
the liquor and fruit juices help preserve the ingredients. Also, for the cold “Christmassy
weather”, the plum cake is a perfect energy food.
We at the Green Park celebrate this day with our esteemed hotel guests, staff and special
invitees from various walks of life, every year. This year we would have our guests join us for
the event on the 20th November (Wednesday) at 4 pm. This year we curated the Theme as
Avengers – Yours super Heroes and we got them to be a part of Cake Mixing ceremony and to
mark the Festive Season ahead.

It’s not your Christmas parade, this year welcome our
GreenPark Staff dressed as your very own Superheroes as they bring in the Ingredients for
mixing. Get into the Christmas spirit and our barman pours out Christmas libations in
Avenger’s style.

The Chefs of Green Park Hotel under the leadership of their Senior Executive Chef V. S.
Thangappan take pleasure in conducting the event and the entire team of employees & the
guests staying at the Hotel would be participating in this ceremonious event.
Mr Sudip Sengupta, Vice president, Green Pak Hotels would inaugurate the event.
