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 in our new heart if we accept Him as 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!!

    Our family has been baking a little different 4-layer cake, each one representing the races of the world; that Christ was born for all of humanity. This will be our 50th year of baking 3 cakes and giving two away on Christmas eve. The four layers are red, yellow, chocolate and white. We use white frosting and sprinkle concentric rings of yellow, red and brown sprinkles on top. The white candle is given along with the story of the cake and our tradition. It is the one tradition that has lasted now 2 generations and we hope our kids will keep it going for many years. The original recipe was in a Buffalo, NY newspaper in 1961 and we have made the cake since 1962. We have never found the original recipe or article from the paper.
