Pegasus Reef Hotel kicks off glittering holiday season with golden Christmas cake mixing

In yet another unique celebration that is now trademark to the Pegasus Reef Hotel’s trend of creating memorable and engaging events for hotel patrons, local guests and tourists, the city resort kicked off the holiday season with the mixing of the traditional Christmas cake, adding their own golden twist to the tale. 

This year, the Pegasus Reef culinary team mixed 200 kg of cake ingredients, with the key ingredient being 23 karats of edible gold, making the Christmas cake mixing a truly ‘Golden’ affair. The culinary team, management and staff, together with the special invitees and guests gathered around the ingredients and officially made the start of the Christmas season.

The celebratory and festive atmosphere was elevated with the tantalising aroma of vanilla and almond essence being mixed with juicy sultanas, cherries, raisins and other ingredients. 

“As with each event at Pegasus Reef Hotel, we are doing things differently this year with our cake mixing event, adding a touch of gold to the traditional mixture,” commented Pegasus Reef Hotel General Manager Harsha Jayasinghe. “It’s a great start to the holiday season and gives our hotel patrons and guests a hint of what we have planned for them for Christmas Season 2018.”
