Don't laugh

(mine)
 
Eid Mubarak to all of you who celebrate. Don't laugh but this is my first ever plate of cakes that I give away during Eid. In my husbands country it is a tradition that the women give each other small plates full of little cakes and that way you end up with a wide varity of cakes to enjoy and offer your guest even though you just baked a few (plus a cupboard full of mismatched plates , wich I love)
I've always just invited people over for coffee and cakes and sent them home empty handed or been a guest travelling, but always receiving their beautiful cakes. (some of them are little pieces of art)  I think its a wonderful tradition, I grew up with helping my mum make big batches of small cookies before every christmas so its already a festive thing for me but to swap around is just genius. I know mine don't look quite as beautiful as the once I received but I wanted to put it up on my blog anyway so Inshallah I can look back in a few years and see some progress Inshallah.
(and if you have any good recepies to share I would love to try, I have to practise before next Eid Inshallah)

  1. Nice ma sha Allah! I think it's nice to swap your own traditional cakes or biscuits with others traditional cakes and biscuits. I don't think I will be making Algerian cakes in Algeria :)

    Eid mubarak!!!
