Birthday Blessings Dear Holy Father!

Bavarian Sponge Cake
We've had a busy week so I ran out of time to make birthday cupcakes in honor of our Holy Father's 84th Birthday.  I found this Bavarian sponge cake in the Produce Department of our grocery store...
How perfect with Pope Benedict XVI being born in Bavaria!
Greek Honey Yogurt
Blueberry's in honor of Our Lady and St. Bernadette of Lourdes Feast Day (also 4/16)
Whipped Cream
{We also added more fresh blueberries after we cut the sponge cake~Fresh and Yummy!)

Almighty and everlasting God, have mercy upon Thy servant, Benedict, our Supreme Pontiff, and direct him, according to Thy loving-kindness, in the way of eternal salvation; that, of thy gift, he may ever desire that which is pleasing unto thee and may accomplish it with all his might. Through Christ Our Lord. Amen (Roman Ritual).
I also posted this birthday dessert over at Catholic Cuisine.


  1. Looks sooooooo yummy! Wish we could share online a virtual piece of Bavarian cake! Gotta see if the local supermarket here has the cake shell. Thank you for sharing. Have a great weekend! =)

  2. How very appropriate! Especially the sponge cake:)

  3. Looks delicious! We made German Puff Pancakes ~ fun to make and to eat. My 7yo wondered if he could mail him a birthday card..."just google his address mom" !
