Smile Birthday cake for Jesus

last year I found a great list of the meanings of each element of a birthday cake for Jesus. For instance, the cake was chocolate-black like our sin, the frosting was white, a candle to remind us that Jesus is the light of the world, etc. It was really neat. But I can't find it now.
Anyone familiar with this???
Thanks.
Janine

No, but I've done a red velvet cake (the blood of Jesus) with white icing. I'd love to hear the whole story on the one you did. Hopefully someone will know!

Curiosity led me to a search. Here is one:
BIRTHDAY CAKE FOR JESUS 1 chocolate cake mix
Frosting

Make a round cake - chocolate to symbolize our sin.Cover with white frosting - white to symbolize His purity that covers our sins.
Decorate with a star and an angel - they symbolize the bearers of the first glad tidings.
Add 12 red candles - 12 candles symbolize that Christ is our light through the 12 months and the color red stands for his blood sheet for us.
Encircle the cake with green frosting - symbolized everlasting life.


And another:
JESUS' BIRTHDAY CAKE Purity: One round white cake with white frosting.Bethlehem: Topped with yellow sugar star.
Tidings of Great Joy: Figure of angel.
Christ our Light Thru the Year: Encircled by 12 red candles.
Everlasting Life: Greens around base of cake.

One more!
JESUS' CAKE Make a round chocolate cake (to symbolize our sins). Cover with white frosting (his purity covers our sins). Top with a yellow star and angel (bearer of the first glad tidings). Place 12 (Christ, our light through the 12 months of the year) red candles (red for his blood shed for us) on top. Encircle the cake with evergreen icing leaves (symbol of everlasting life).In the bustle of preparing for Christmas, we may forget what we are celebrating. To place the right importance on the Christmas holiday, make this birthday cake for Jesus and explain the symbols to your children.


Got these on cooks.com

A Birthday Cake for Jesus
From The Rush'd Lady


Birthday Cake for Jesus

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.
Take photographs for scrapbooks.
Merry Christmas and a Very Happy New Year!
~The Rush'd Lady

Smile Wow, Thanks, Chef Mama!!!!!!!!

That about covers it, except that there were bible verses that pertained to each element for members of the birthday party to read aloud.
Maybe we'll come up with those between the two of us, or maybe someone else will know.
Thanks!!!
Janine

Ah! Shucks! Someone found me! And here I thot I was hidin' out!

Have ya heard of a Jesse Tree? It's very similar to Jesus' birthday cake. I have a book on the Jesse tree and it includes devotions and scriptures. Perhaps one or more of the ones listed would do for your cake.

The Advent Jesse Tree: Devotions for Children and Adults to Prepare for the Coming of the Christ Child at Christmas. By Dean Meador Lambert. 1988.
