We had fun making these cakes for the dual feasts of the Sacred & Immaculate Hearts! They were fairly easy with heart-shaped cake pans! These are special back to back feasts so we wanted to really celebrate these joyous occasions today and tomorrow. This link explains the Sacred Heart of Jesus. And this link explains the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
I was particularly struck by this statement from Catholic Culture:" How society, culture, economy, politics today need this Heart! It is really true, the more man distances himself from God-Love the more he becomes 'heartless', agitated about a thousand things because he has mislaid the principal one: to let oneself be loved by Christ and to respond to this Love with our love."
WOW, is this ever so true!
We used red food coloring to die the white frosting, then used squeezable chocolate brownie topping for the weave of thorns...Finally, we added a bit of red icing for the blood He shed. Oh what a loving and merciful God!
~St. Margaret Mary Alacoque~
"The heart that resembles that of Christ more than any other is without a doubt the Heart of Mary, His Immaculate Mother."~Pope Benedict XVI~
One last thing...For another idea, here is a photo of some Immaculate Heart of Mary Rice Krispy Treats that we made in the past....
