Cakes That Depict Good Friday Featured

A solemn Good Friday to all of us. My dear bakers and cake lovers, I decided to showcase more of today's theme because it is a widely celebrated or rather observed day. However, I have noticed that the bakers in this part of the world have not attached importance to creating cake works that can represent this day.

For Christians, This day represents the basis of their salvation as such I personally feel that every art in the christian world should make this day ceremonial by creating works  that can properly showcase this day

Cake designers should not be left out of this. Anyway, I came across a few pictures that really made a great impression of today's significance and I want to share them here

Let's see these pics

Hot Cross Bun & Good Friday Featured

A hot cross bun is a spiced sweet bun made with currants or raisins, marked with a cross on the top, and traditionally eaten on Good Friday in the British Isles, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Canada, and India. The buns mark the end of Lent and different parts of the hot cross bun have a certain meaning, including the cross representing the crucifixion of Jesus, and the spices inside signifying the spices used to embalm him at his burial. They are now available all year round in some places. Hot cross buns may go on sale in Australia and New Zealand as early as New Year's Day or after Christmas.
