Celebrating the Feast of St. George the Dragon Slayer

by | Apr 24, 2009 | Cake Decorating, Liturgical Year, Saints, St. George | 8 comments

Well, the thing with celebrating feast days at home with your children, and doing cool things like making a dragon cake for the feast of St. George, is that your children DON’T FORGET!!!

“MOM, you HAVE to make the dragon cake AGAIN!!! Pleaassssseeeeee!!!!!!!”

Even though it was a super busy day (I had a Little Flowers meeting to lead this afternoon) I couldn’t resist the fun, and made another dragon cake… Actually, it was quite a bit easier than last year, and didn’t take near as long. This time I used chocolate covered graham cookies for the spikes (like Charlotte and Renee did last year) which was sooo much easier than trying to frost cut-up pieces of cake. For the flames I just used some organic fruit leather, which wasn’t that red, but oh well! He still is nowhere near as cute as Charlotte’s dragons, but I do think he is an improvement over our dragon from last year…

This year we just used cocktail swords for slaying the dragon, but the children were thrilled… Even Snuggles loved the dragon!


Hope you all had a wonderful feast of St. George!

    Thanks for the idea. We had our neighbors over and read St. George and I made a dragon cake, though mine did not come at as well as yours. Have you taken cake decorating classes? Our sad dragon can be found here http://kramers.blackkeep.com

    Your cake is great, Jessica! I will have to make sure my daughter sees it as she is so into cake decorating right now.
    We have the same St. George book… after checking it out at the library half a dozen times, my mother found it used for the boys. 🙂

    The cake looks great! I am printing out a picture of it to stick in my liturgical year binder as a reference for future years…

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.
