Kutya/Koliva. This is how I decorate mine. I buy the silver candies from a European store. When they are out of them, I use the almonds. I'd like to make a cross stencil and use glitter sugar.

Koliva- A Memorial Tradition of the Orthodox Church

Most assuredly, I say to you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the ground and dies, it remains alone; but if it dies, it produces much grain. John 12:24 I used to watch my mom (and grandmother) make koliva for family and church members for years. I'd watch her sort through the wheat looking for rocks and abnormalities, boil it for hours, dry it on the dining room table, toast the almonds and walnuts, sift the powered sugar, and carry it to church early in the morning. She would patiently…
