A southern traditional cake festival is being organised for the third time in the Mekong Delta city of Can Tho’s Cai Khe Islet, with more than 100 kinds of traditional cakes on show made from rice, glutinous rice, and other ingredients available in the delta.

At the three-day festival, which goes on until January 25, visitors can see artisans make various kinds of cakes like bank tet (cylinder-shaped glutinous rice cake filled with green bean past and pork) and bank xeo (Vietnamese rice-flour pancake filled with green bean, bean sprouts, shrimp, and pork).

Visitors can also take part in a contest on traditional cakes.-VNA
