Barmbrack And Soul Cakes, Ireland
Ireland is considered to be the birthplace of Halloween. In this country they make a fruitcake called barmbrack. It contains a treat inside of it that can foretell the person who’s eating the cakes future supposedly. In this country they celebrate a holiday very similar to Halloween called All Saints Day. Traditionally they give those that go door to door round cakes called soul cakes. They are made out of cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and raisins.
Fave Dei Morti, Italy
Similar to All Saints Day, Italians celebrate All Souls’ Day. Instead of cake, they make cookies with almonds and they cover the cookies with sugar that makes this dessert very sweet.
Pan De Muerto, Mexico
To celebrate Day Of The Dead, called Dia De Los Muertos, Mexicans mold bread into animals and angels. They also make a sweet bread called Pan de Muerto. It is sometimes sweetened with orange zest and is often decorated with either bones or teardrops. Many individuals will leave these cookies at the graveside of a loved one.
Guagua De Pan, Ecuador
Bread babies, called Guagua De Pan, are what is served for Day Of The Dead in Ecuador. They are made with wheat and often times with jelly. They are given out as gifts to friends and family members.
