nashik: Nashik: Demand for plum cakes increases | Nashik News

NASHIK: With Christmas in a day, bakeries and home bakers are having the busiest time of the year. Amid the festive season, the demand for traditional plum cakes have increased in bakeries.
The presence of dry fruits in plum cakes give people all the more reason to savour them during the winter season.
In most of the churches, cakes would be served after the Christmas prayers as a form of sweet. John Dias, a resident of Nashik Road, said, “For Christians, savouring cakes, wine and other confectioneries is a tradition just like Hindus savour their faral in Diwali. We come home from the churches after the Christmas prayers and enjoy cake and wine with family and friends. While the trend of buying the plum cakes from bakeries has always been there, a large number of people prepare the cakes at their homes.”
Amit Desai of Shree Mahalaxmi Agency, who has the oldest cakes shop in Nashik Road, said, the demand for cakes always increases during the Christmas season. For the past 38 years, people have been coming to our cake shop from faraway places. Though we have many varieties of cakes, the demand for plums increases during Christmas. We sell around 200 kg of plums during Christmas which has been consistent over the years even as new cake shops have come up. Our old customers no matter how far they stay, still come for the plum cakes.”
Janhavi Jadhav of Hirawadi, said when it is Christmas, even non-Christians orders plum cakes celebrate the festival.
Bakery stores all over the city are filled with plum cakes, pastries and biscuits as they get sold fast during Christmas.
