Gingerbread or Spice cake is traditionally flavored with a mixture of spices. The cake can be prepared in many varieties. Predominant flavorings include spices such as cinnamon, cloves, allspice, ginger and nutmeg.
In Russian tradition gingerbreads are one of the main components of the tea party table. They are usually glazed with sugar syrup, and can be filled with many goodies such as condensed milk, jam, or halva.
