Have a Birthday Cake for Baby Jesus!

YIP2010 - 350
Every year on Christmas day we celebrate with a birthday cake for Baby Jesus. It has been a tradition for years and years, and this year was no different. Our cake is an angel food cake, with "strawberry fluff" filling, and whipped cream tinted green. The fluff is whipped cream, strawberry Jello, and frozen strawberries (thawed). It's a good thing that Christmas calories don't count!

It's a little thing, but it is one of the ways that we make sure that Jesus is the center of this day, this season, of celebration.

We hope you had a very merry Christmas season, and that your soul rejoices each day as you remember that Jesus came to this earth because of His great love for you.

We do the same thing! This year we went all out and made a rainbow cake with cool whip frosting too... Yum! I really think you are right about it reminding us of what the day is truly about. We always sing happy birthday and it is everyone's favorite thing about Christmas Day.
