Christmas Around the World: Germany

Christmas Around the World: Germany | Wilton Cake Decorating

We’re celebrating Christmas with our Wilton friends all over the globe! In our Christmas Around the World Series, a guest contributor will share their favorite Christmas recipe and story with you. Today’s story comes from Annett Schröder in Germany.

The German season for Christmas sweets starts early. In some stores you will find the first Gingerbread cookies appearing in late summer. But when days start to get shorter and it gets colder outside in autumn, families really start to prepare for the season. On the 6th of December, when Santa Claus comes into our houses, children place their boots for Santa to fill them with sweets. In these days baking is the most popular family event. You can enjoy the smell of baked cookies and Christmas cakes in all the kitchens. When family and friends come to visit on the weekends in December before the Christmas holidays, lovely decorated sweets are the eye catchers on German tables.
