We had been today to the annual Kempinski Mall of the Emirates Christ Stollen Charity Cake Sale inside the Mall of the Emirates. Every year in December the Kempinski Hotel is selling Stollen for Charity where all proceeds are donated to the Dubai Center for Special Needs which is a lovely thing.
You could get a slice for 5AED, half a leaf for 50AED or a full one for 100AED. We have chosen to take a full one despite being much to big for ourselves. But with the good reason behind it it was no doubt to get it.
Stollen is so to day a fruit cake containing dried fruit and often marzipan and covered with sugar, powdered sugar or icing sugar. The cake is usually made with chopped candied fruit and/or dried fruit, nuts and spices. Stollen is a traditional German cake, usually eaten during the Christmas season, when it is called Weihnachtsstollen or Christstollen.
Here a few pictures from the Event:
