Shrove Tuesday

The sweet bun stuffed full with whipped cream

Shrove Tuesday (Vastlapäev in Estonian) is celebrated by many branches of Christians as the last day of feasting and fun before the Lent period preceding Easter. The holiday falls on a different day each year, seven weeks before Easter.. In some countries this day is celebrated as 'Mardi Gras', and in the United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia and Canada the day is aptly called 'Pancake Tuesday', because a rich meal of pancakes is served.
Shrove Tuesday is mostly the sweet bun stuffed full with whipped cream called 'vastlakukkel'. The fluffy baked goods are so popular that cafes fill with long queues of people picking up their preordered buns or scrambling to buy some; late-comers may find no buns at all, so better to be early! We were on time and enjoyed our sweet buns from BRNE wooden plates. Just perfect ;)
