Easter story cookies

Last year we made these Easter Story cookies on Saturday night that tells the story of Jesus dying on the cross and rising on the 3rd day.  I LOVE the concept however these cookies tasted disgusting.  (Sorry, just being honest! ) So, if you want to try it this year, I would highly recommend it for the ‘experience’ and ‘visual effect’!  This year we are going to try Resurrection Buns, which sound a lot yummier!
From April 2009

By the way, if you haven’t heard of Resurrection Eggs yet, they are an awesome way to teach your children about the Easter story. Here is a website that shows you how to make your own at home! So easy!

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!!
