What's Cooking?

What an excellent roundup Cathy! I liked seeing the different calendars and the roscas from the various Mexican supermarkets. Interesting that Vallarta's calendar would have the Christ the Redeemer statue. The baby in the post looks different than the one I had last year and this year.


That's a great calendar collection!


I love the calenders you collected. How do they bake those baby Jesus figurines without melting them in the bread (from the heat)? I love your traditions - you must look fwd to them every year.


I hadn't realized the varying toppings from each place until I looked at the photos, cc...all have royal colors, but each is unique. Vallarta calendars had several different designs of places around the world (I only got one Christ the Redeemer and my brother has it in his cubicle at work)(I have Golden Gate Al Atardecer). Rosca babies must come from several bakery suppliers.
Thanks, Soo. It's something I do.
Thank you, Faye. I know that the plastic babies in cake are pushed in after it is baked (because they would sink in batter and hit the metal cake pan), but these are definitely baked in...perhaps because the interior of bread doesn't get to such a high heat level (like meat has to) combined with the plastic being one solid hard piece. I'd like to think that we all have customs that are comforting and part of our culture, even if it's changing up our own or our home decor or eating special foods at different times of the year.


Very cool.
