Due to popular demand, I am writing the recipe of a delicious Christmas Tree cake I made for Elle et Vire’s Bake a Smile Christmas campaign. Baking usually makes me happy and peaceful. This time, it was twice the satisfaction because this cake was meant for people in need. Elle et Vire teamed up with Order of Malta Lebanon to help spread the Christmas spirit by baking as many cakes and cookies to offer and make people happy during this festive season.

Lately, the country’s agricultural economy has been suffering. We’ve been cultivating amazing produce when it comes to fruits and vegetables and farmers are now capable of exporting their goods and therefore make our economy better. What I understood is that things are apparently not working properly to encourage and allow those farmers to export their goods and expand, or even sell locally due to all imported goods we get. I don’t know the story very well, but I know we – the Lebanese people – have been encouraging the production of our apples for over a month now. Every Lebanese person I know has cartons and cartons of apples at home. Apple pies, apple cakes and apple crumbles are THE go-to desserts this fall.
