Cake shops were decorated with Christmas trees, baubles hanging from the ceiling with stars and red ribbons. The cakes and pastries on display at the counter not only looked attractive but were scrumptious as well. The shops sold plum cakes wrapped in decorative wrappers, star cookies adorned with cute and edible Santas and rich chocolate brownies among other items.

"We have prepared special plum cakes, cookies and other cakes for Christmas. The price of the plum cakes start at Rs 300," said an employee at Loyans Bakery, one of the most popular cake shops in the city.

Eggs-o-tic, an old cake shop, saw an increase in the number of customers on Christmas day as people thronged the shop for plum cakes and star-shaped cookies along with its usual items.

Patisserie Opera, a new cake shop, seemed quite passionate to cater to the demands of people in the city. The shop, for its first Christmas, prepared around 500 cakes. With a Santa Claus greeting customers in the entrance, the shop sold plum cakes, rum cakes, special fruit cakes and star cookies.

"We get the ingredients from outside and use Belgium chocolate for all the items. The response was really good as most of the items were sold out quite early. By noon, we had sold 200 kilos of cake. We also made marzi-pan, yute log, ginger bread and handmade chocolate cakes for the day, said Maitrayee Ojha, proprietor of Patisserie Operaa, who was trained in the UK.

As for restaurants and lounge bars, special events were held to mark the day. Some lounge bars even organized live performances by different bands.
