Happy birthday, Jesus!
That’s the theme of this week’s issue of Killer Cakes. Here are some cakes submitted by talented members of Cake Central to mark the occasion:
And this one was created by CC member adalyscr.
I don’t know if you can see from the thumbnail, but this cake made by CC member mommyle has Merry Christmas and stars on the top, angels on the top layer side, the Madonna and Child on the second tier, the Magi on the third, and the shepherds on the fourth!
And, finally, check out this creation from CC member newtodecorating. For more terrific ideas, check out Cake Central!
When I researched Jesus birthday cakes, I also found that some cakes are made with chocolate, strawberry, and green layers. The chocolate is to represent our sins. The strawberry (or white with red food coloring) layer signifies that our sins are covered by the blood of Christ. And the green layer reminds us to continue to grow in His love. Some bloggers suggested putting a large white candle in the center of the cake and having guests use the candle to light smaller candles to represent carrying the light of Christ into the world.
