Cake for a King. Do you celebrate Jesus's birthday on Christmas?  I mean like really celebrate and throw a party.  Setting the presents aside and focus on the true reason for the season. Singing and clapping, giving praise and gratitude.

I want to encourage your family to give Jesus a Birthday this year and even make him a cake.  Our family takes time on Christmas to light candles and sing Happy Birthday to Jesus.  The girls look forward to it every year.  The celebration teaches them to continue to put other's first and focus on God in life.  

This year we will be having Chocolate cake.  Who am I kidding, we have chocolate cake every year.

Here is the recipe of the year! Just for you.

  • 9 Tbs arrowroot starch
