A Birthday Cake for Jesus

I haven't done this, or plan of doing it, but it sounds like fun for those of you who have kids.

In case you are looking for a neat birthday cake to make for Jesus this year....here's a neat one. It's a great little teaching tool at the same time. :-)

1 chocolate cake mix

1 white cake mix

white frosting

yellow, red, & green liquid food coloring

2 (8 or 9 inch) round cake pans

large red candle taper

box of small birthday candles

Mix and bake chocolate cake mix according to box directions. Cool & flip out both. Wrap 1 layer and freeze for later use.
Mix white cake according to box directions. Divide batter in half. Put several drops of red food coloring in one half and mix to desired shade. Pour in one round cake pan. In the other half of batter, drop in green food color & mix. Put in other cake pan. Bake, cool, & pop out. Stack first chocolate layer, frost with white frosting, next red layer, frost, and last green layer. Frost whole cake with white frosting. Decorate.

To Decorate Jesus Birthday Cake

Red & yellow food coloring or

plastic decorations or

stencils & red and yellow piping gel Cake is round = because Jesus was born into a world that is round.
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.

Frosting is white = stands for Jesus' purity & righteousness.
Border of Hearts around cake sides = represents each one of us standing as witnesses for Jesus around the world.
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.
Yellow border around Star = Grace of God encircles us.
Big Red candle in middle of star of David is Jesus.
Light candle then read Christmas story out of Bible. Light each person's small candles out of Jesus' candle & carefully stick in cake. Let our lights shine before men! Sing Happy Birthday to Jesus.
