Christmas is just around the corner. The air is starting to smell a lot like baked goodies and warm spirits. A lot of families might be coming together on this occasion after almost 2 years spent in separation. It’s time to pull out all the stops and put together a Christmas like no other. The best way into (literally) everyone’s hearts is a platter of Christmassy delights that has been carefully created with love. Delectable personalised cookies, marzipan, macarons and cakes made from choicest imported ingredients can spruce up your festive meals. Here are some beautiful and indulgent goodies that you can make a part of your Christmas celebration in Mumbai with Toujours:
Christmas cookies go all the way back to medieval Europe. Over time, with the introduction of modern ingredients, they kept getting better. Aesthetic cookies in Christmas shapes can be the showstoppers in your party. Gingerbread, Bredala, sugar cookies and Springerle are some types that are popular among the old and the young. The most popular of them all, the gingerbread cookies are believed to have come from China. They started being considered sacred in ancient Europe and were allowed to be made only on Christmas and Easter. At Toujours, our cookies are meticulously designed to weave the spirit of Christmas into their crunchy, chewy goodness and are made in several festive shapes with the colours of the season. Our personalized Christmas cookies look like Christmas trees, Santa Claus, reindeers or snowmen, and your loved ones’ names are hand painted on each. They will complement not just your party set up but can make for perfect gifts for the little ones.
As the legend goes, the plum cake made it to Christmas as a porridge. What started as a practice of fasting before the Christmas feast, ended up becoming the norm for Christmas day. A rich, chewy plum cake by Toujours, with some exquisite dry fruits, nuts and rum is as indulgent as it gets. This mouth-watering delicacy is best paired with some spiced mulled wine to really bring out its flavours. A bountiful, traditional plum cake conveys your goodwill towards the receiver in the best way possible, especially when it’s handcrafted with love.
Marzipan is a luxurious dainty confection. Made from groundnuts, specifically almonds or cashew nuts, it is unique in taste and texture and screams Christmas like nothing else. A lot of European countries claim to have pioneered the creation of this treat that is now a mainstay sweet in many Indian households during this time of the year.. You can have marzipan on cakes, marzipan baubles shaped like Christmas tree ornaments, candy canes or even tuck it inside your favourite chocolates. It accentuates the festive Christmassy spirit with its mere presence and makes for a wonderful gift to loved ones.
An exquisite delicacy, the macaron makes for a very elegant Christmas sweet. Macarons are made of two almond meringue disks that are held together by a delectable filling of buttercream, jam or ganache. It’s a delicacy that requires patience to master and isn’t the easiest to nail. Having come all the way from France,, this delicacy makes for a wonderful statement and offers authenticity to your Christmas platter. At Toujours, our Christmas macarons are handcrafted with one side looking like a snowman, santa’s belly, a reindeer and more!
A sumptuous Christmas platter boasts of an assortment of confectioneries. Christmas themed chocolate-dipped strawberries, macarons and cake pops can really enhance your gourmet platter. These delicacies coupled with themed cupcakes and chocolates make for a beautiful Christmas hamper too. Moreover, they can be customised and designed in keeping with Christmas.
The festive spirit is best relayed through acts of kindness. In these tough times, people need it more than ever. Send these luxurious delicacies to those you love in Mumbai, whether you live in India or abroad. After all, Christmas is all about time-honoured recipes, beautiful goodies and gifting - and that’s what Toujours stands for.
