One of the traditions that are held throughout the holiday season is to bake a Christmas cake. If you arent sure what kind of cake you would like to make, you can search the Internet or go to the library to check out some recipe books. You can even ask your family if they have a good cake recipe. You should make your cake just before the holiday. This way it can be eaten with the Christmas dinner. Typically families come together to work on the meal. Your cake would be a big help with the desserts. You should also make sure to consider if anyone in your family has allergies to the ingredients.
