Cathedral Cake on the Feast of the Dedication of Saint John Lateran Basilica in Rome

by | Nov 9, 2014 | Cake Decorating, Liturgical Year | 4 comments

Today we celebrate the dedication of St. John Lateran Basilica which is our Holy Father’s church and also the “mother and head of all the churches of the city and the world.”

We will be having a potluck after Mass this afternoon and I’m bringing cake! When I realized that the potluck was going to fall on this great feast I knew I had to bake at least one cake in my Cathedral Cake Bundt Pan. It looks like Jenn and I were thinking along the same lines! (You can read her great article for today’s feast over at Catholic Culture.) I kept it simple and just baked Yellow and Triple Chocolate Fudge cakes with a couple Betty Crocker mixes, along with a Gluten Free Pumpkin Spice Cake.

The Cathedral Cake Bundt Pan is so much fun and can easily be adapted for many different occasions. I’ve used it for birthdays, various feast days including the feasts of St. Joseph and St. Thomas Becket, and it also makes a beautiful cake for Christmas!

A certain little boy really wants a piece of one of those cakes… It won’t be too much longer! 
I hope you all have a blessed Sunday! 
O God, Who year by year dost renew the day of the consecration of this Thy holy temple, and dost ever bring us again in safety to the holy mysteries, hear the prayers of Thy people, and grant that whosoever entereth this temple to seek blessings may rejoice to obtain all that he seeketh.

    I love the accompanying card you made. Did you do the calligraphy by hand or is it a font? Either way, very pretty!

    That's amazing that you could celebrate this feast with the Latin Mass this afternoon! If you're ever up in Portland you should come to St. Brigitta's 🙂

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.
