Hot Cross Buns

Hot Cross Buns (here in LEGO by Brick Blue Wren) are traditionally served on Good Friday. Historically, bread was made without dairy during lent, and these spiced sweet buns, usually with raisins or currants, mark the end of lent at mid-day on Friday. The spices point back to the embalming spices used in the tomb and the icing cross, of course, points to the cross of Christ.
