happy birthday jesus cake

We started a new tradition last year which was to eat birthday cake for breakfast on Chrismas morning for Jesus!  Last year’s cake was okay, but this year, I wanted to try even harder for more ‘meaning’.  After searching the internet, I came up with this creation:

couldn’t be a party without party horns!
blow out the candles!
Three layers of yummyness!

1st layer of cake = is brown for our sins.

2nd layer = is red for Jesus’ blood shed for our sins.

3rd layer = is green for life (ours if we confess with our mouth and believe with our heart that Jesus Christ is our Lord.)

Frosting is white = stands for Jesus’ purity & righteousness.

Gold Star in middle of cake top = star of Bethlehem = led wise men to Jesus. Star is 6 pointed =Star of David = Jewish nation in which Jesus is born.

Big Red candle in middle of star of David is Jesus.

We lit the red candle in the middle. Then each of us took our small candles and lit them from Jesus’ candle & carefully stuck  in the cake. Let our lights shine before men! Then we sang Happy Birthday to Jesus!!

    Oh – that’s so full of meaning! We do a birthday cake for Jesus (I posted pics of ours, too) but we don’t put any extra “meaning” into it with colors. Just that it’s His birthday and we celebrate with a cake and candles and sing. … Naturally, He would choose rich dark flourless chocolate cake – so we serve Him our Best!!! 🙂
