Lucky Sweet Dishes
12 or 13 of this to be precise! So why two different numbers? Well in the Philippines the custom is to have 13 as it’s considered to be a lucky number, in other countries where this is considered unlucky then use 12 as it represents the 12 months in a year. Now why do I need round fruits? It’s because of their shapes which resembles coins, now how about some the polygon shaped coins 🙂
This is more of an American Custom and it derives its luck from its shape and colour, it does resemble a gold bar and to beef up the luck it can give why not add some corn kernels to resemble some gold nuggets. I think this year I will make a jewellery shaped cornbread but where do I get the moulds. While I don’t have a recipe for the bread I have the one for muffins which I think is a better idea as it resembles the Chinese gold nugget shape. So get your corn muffin recipe here.
Everything is shaped round why not have round cakes as well, it can be the centrepiece of your table during this time. Round cakes encourages “coming full circle” in each of your endeavours. For this what I suggest is make some cheesecakes and I have heaps of quick and easy cheesecakes recipes here.
