I was super excited with a recent post that directed my attention to some incredible 4th of July desserts that can also be made for Memorial Day from Glorious Treats. You can click here and here to see these cuties.
However, I forgot that I should probably be making a cake for today...Pentecost. After all, Pentecost does mark the birthday of the Church! I decided to use the same cake I wanted to make for Memorial Day....the flag cake....and tweak it a bit.
I decided to add 12 strawberry slices for the 12 apostles. They look like tongues of fire don't they! I made something similar a couple of years ago for this post.
The surprise for the kids was when I cut open the cake. It's a flag!
I also wanted to use up the leftover cake. If you read the post on how to make the flag cake, you will notice that there will be a bit of leftover cake. I took a tiny condiment bowl and cut out little circles of cake, stacked them in pint canning jars, layered them with icing, and added sprinkles to the top.
Voila! Glorious Treats' cupcakes in a jar. The kids love these because they're super easy to eat with a spoon and they can walk around with them. I love the no-mess factor!
Here are a few more pics from the day.
