Birthday Cake for Jesus

Celebrating Christmas with a Birthday Party for Jesus is one of our favorite events of the Christmas season.  It is such a natural way to explain God’s plan for salvation.  We love to invite neighbors and friends to celebrate with us.  There are always some children who have never heard the Good News of Jesus.  We explain the purpose for each part of the cake as we eat it. 





1 box chocolate cake mix
1 can white frosting

 1. Make a round cake – I use one 10 inch pan and one 6 inch pan

Purpose:  The round shape shows God’s love is never ending.  He sent Jesus because of His love


2. Make a chocolate cake

Purpose:  The dark color reveals the sin in every heart

3. Cover with white frosting

Purpose:  The white symbolizes how Jesus can cover our sins if we accept His gift of salvation through His death on the cross

4. Decorate with a star and toy lamb

Purpose:  Jesus is the light of the world.  Jesus was born in a stable and He is the Lamb of God who came to take away our sin

5. Place 12 red candles around the 10 inch cake

Purpose:  The 12 candles symbolize Christ is shining His light in our life all throughout the year.  The red shows Jesus’ blood that brings salvation

6. Encircle the top and lower cakes with green frosting

Purpose:  The green shows the eternal life that is possible through Jesus
