Lekha, one of my readers from Bahrain, mailed me sometime back with a suggestion….she wanted me to post a party menu. I liked the idea very much, but then I was not sure how to go about it. Different types of food are served at different parties right? As usual, my thought process was completely occupied with the party menu, but nothing worked out :(
Recently when I was thinking about the Xmas special post, Lekhas party menu said hi to me like a long lost friend :) Am glad that I met that friend at the right time ;) Thanks a ton dear Lekhas for that suggestion. I hope other readers will also find it useful.

(my kushumbu). its (cooking) a ‘mala marikkunna pany’ for me . any ways (tips) for making cooking enjoyable & looks yummy like urs.
Hey as the party starts off with the X mas cake and wine you should post some recipe for the same.Do you have any good recipe for X mas Cake (Fruit one) with fondant icing.
I will try to post the recipe for cake & wine, but not very sure about it. I always plan to post it, but didnt happen so far :(. Hopefully, this time I will be able to do that.
Let me see whether I have any good fruit cake recipes with fondant icing.
