The topic for Day 2 was my “Favorite Christmas Dessert”, and we were supposed to share the recipe. I don’t have a specific recipe, but I do have a dessert tradition that is definitely my favorite to share with you all! Every year at Christmas, we make a “Happy Birthday” cake for Jesus and sing Happy Birthday to Him. Every year we choose a different flavor or shape to keep it interesting. One year was a chocolate cake, another year was a white-chocolate layer cake with fruit, and a few times we’ve used a fun tree-shaped pan I have. I think we need to try a brownie or cookie cake, or maybe this popcorn cake! Doesn’t that look fun?
Lovebug and any other kids that are around get the job of decorating the cake. We use icing, and then an assortment of decorations – sprinkles, chocolate chips, candy coated chocolate candies, coconut – all fun for little hands!
Here is our tree-shaped cake from a couple years ago!
It’s a special tradition and something we all look forward to every year. I love watching my daughter get so excited as she helps me plan and prepare for the most important birthday party of the year!
Merry Christmas and Happy Birthday, Jesus!
