Kottayam: The creative team at Saintgits College of Applied Sciences here conducted a cake mixing event on November 4. Teachers and students participated in the event which marked the beginning of their Christmas celebrations in the campus.

Punnoose George, Chairman, Saintgits Group of Institutions, Dr Mathew Jacob, Principal and teaching and non-teaching staff attended the event. Students actively participated in the event that aimed to enhance a sense of togetherness. The mixed ingredients have now been carefully stored for maturation to make delicious cakes for Christmas. 
Assistant Professor Athira S Kumar said, “It was a delightful experience with our students”.

“It was a vibrant event filled with enthusiasm and great joy,” remarked Dinoop Cherian Philip, M Com's first-year student. Another student, Goury S Ajith, a second-year BA Corporate Economics student said, that our teachers proved that they not only excel in academics but also the culinary skills.

Traditionally, the cake mixing ceremony, also called the ‘stirring ceremony’ was celebrated in Europe from the 17th century. The ceremony marks the arrival of the harvest season, during which lots of fruits and nuts are harvested and used in the making of the traditional plum cake.
