*Simnel cake is traditionally eaten at Easter and made historically by female servants to take to their families on rare visits home. Not only delicious, it is a symbolic Easter cake decorated to signify aspects of Christianity. 11 marzipan balls are placed around the circular marzipan coated cake depicting 11 disciples. Although there were 12 apostles of Jesus Christ, Judas Iscariot betrayed him and is therefore omitted.
