This was our desert yesterday. I had baked a kulitsa and made a pasha according to the Russian orthodox tradition. Kulitsa is a sweet bread similar to panettoni eaten in some countries during Christmas time. Pasha is a sweet desert made with quark, whipped cream, dried fruits, raisins, ground almond, sugar, eggs and butter. Basically the ingredients are mixed and the mixture is left in a wooden container in the fridge over night. The cyrillic letters XB appear on both kulitsa and pasha (you can't really see them in the picture) and they mean "Christ is risen".
