Celebrate the Sacred Heart and Immaculate Heart in Style!


A huge thanks to reader Amy who shared the following idea for a “sweet” way to celebrate this week’s feast days of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus (6/19) and the Immaculate Heart of Mary (6/20).  Amy writes:

I wanted to share these pictures of the cakes I made for our Home Enthronement to the Sacred Heart of Jesus that my family recently celebrated.  With the Sacred Heart and Immaculate Heart feast days rapidly approaching, I thought this would be a fun idea to share with your readers/followers.

I used a heart shaped pan.  I used boxed cake mix (I used strawberry cake mix because of the color, but it didn’t taste as good as I thought it would).  I would probably use vanilla next time.  I made buttercream frosting and tinted the frosting with food coloring.  I used little ziplock baggies for the writing and decorations and cut the tips off.

I didn’t buy anything special as far as cake decorating supplies.  I just used what I had here at home!
I was so pleased with the results.  And everyone loved them!  Thanks for all you do to share the faith with all of us Catholic moms.

In Christ and His Mother,

Aliso Viejo, California
