Twelfth Night Cakes

"Christmas goes out in fine style - with Twelfth Night.  It is a finish worthy of the time.  Christmas Day was the morning of the season;  New Year's Day the middle of it, or noon; Twelfth Night is the night, brilliant with innumerable planets of Twelfth Cakes."

Leigh Hunt, 1840
