Happy Birthday Jesus Cake for Christmas Dinner- a Meaningful Tradition!

What better way to get across the idea to children that Christmas is Jesus’ birthday other than having a birthday cake? It has become our tradition to serve a “Happy Birthday Jesus” cake for Christmas dinner. Even if we get invited to family’s house for Christmas dinner, I offer to bring the dessert, and show up with a cake.

We usually make this cake on Christmas Eve, and it’s always just made from a simple box mix, and iced with icing from a can. (There’s too many things going on this time of year for me to attempt anything fancy.)

Rather than decorating it with a Christmas theme, we decorate it with a birthday theme. This usually involves plenty of sprinkles! I get the easy icing in those little gel tubes to write on top. No fancy cake decorating skills required. Easy and meaningful- a great combination!

We put candles on the cake, sing Happy Birthday to Jesus, and all the kids blow out the candles together. This is one of my favorite Christmas traditions!
