Ladybug Cake

by | Apr 20, 2008 | Cake Decorating, Recipes | 11 comments

A super sweet person convinced me to try out cake decorating! I was going to wait till next week and start with making a cake for the feast of St. George, but after having so much fun making cupcakes, I thought I would see what I could do for Chiquita’s 3rd birthday tomorrow. For her birthday, I got her a darling tea set, and a ladybug costume, so I thought it would be fun to make a ladybug cake to go along with the theme. I looked at a couple pictures online and got to work. It was totally stressful, and yet so much fun all at the same time!

In may not have turned out perfect–far from it actually! But, I think Chiquita is going to love it!!

Prayer of Mothers

Father in heaven, grant me the grace to appreciate the dignity which you have conferred on me. Let me realize that not even the Angels have been blessed with such a privilege—to share in your creative miracle and bring new Saints to heaven. Make me a good mother to all my children after the example of Mary, the Mother of your Son. Through the intercession of Jesus and Mary I ask your continued blessings on my family. Let us all be dedicated to your service on earth and attain the eternal happiness of your kingdom in heaven. Amen.

A Little About Me

Hi! I'm Jessica, a Roman Catholic wife and home educating mother to our nine children. I was home educated myself, along with my eleven younger siblings. I have a special devotion to St. Therese, through whom I have been given much help and many blessings--the beautiful "Shower of Roses" that she has sent my way! Here I will record a few of the blessings I treasure. Please remember that what you see here is just a little glimpse at our lives, so please say a prayer for us, as we continue to strive for holiness.
