Christmas Tradition Idea
I read an article in our local paper a few years ago about a lady who had started her own bakery, and her biggest seller in Dec. was her Christmas cakes. She put a card on each one telling what each layer represented.
The bottom layer is chocolate; to represent our sins.
The second layer is red (velvet) to represent Jesus shedding his blood for our sins.
The top layer is green (white cake with a few drops of green coloring)to represent our new life in Christ.
White icing represents our sins being washed away, so we are now white as snow.
I plan to make this and let the littles help. And since it takes 3 different boxes of cake mix, (not about to let the littles make it from scratch), but you only need 1 layer of each, why not make 2 and give one away!!!
I do not know how this cake originated, but I googled a few options and found it on
she has some really cute (and simple) craft ideas for Christians!
I'd love to hear YOUR traditions and other "hide them in your heart" ideas.
