Christmas is just around the corner and as time slips out of hand panic trickles into our mind. Many people in Mumbai live a hectic life that is hard to describe in words and I certainly know that after all I have been a Mumbaikar all my life commuting up and down the local trains five days a week and getting into that super dense crush load local trains that push you to the limits of madness and havoc. If you are still not ready with your Christmas decorations, Christmas tree and other important things that you need to prepare for the festival you need not panic because you can still make up and get all the information right here simplified and to the point. I have already covered the decorations part in my earlier blog that also talks about Christmas tree and other decorative items that you need during the festival. So, if you are looking for Christmas tree shops in Mumbai or Christmas decorations in Mumbai you can click here.
I love cakes and that is what makes my Christmas even better because I manage to get my hands on cakes and pastries during the festival season. I have chomped up many cakes in my life from different bakeries in the city and across India so I know which ones taste better. In Mumbai, Monginis remains the most popular cake shop that you will find everywhere, but the level of quality has degraded in the last five years. I don’t have grudges against the brand and nor I am being paid by someone else to do this. I have been eating Monginis cakes for more than 17 years so I know how the cakes were made then and now. Cakes play an important role during Christmas celebrations because you can also gift cakes to your relatives, friends and close family members. Here I have listed some of the best cake shops where you can find great Christmas cake deals when you are running out of time.
