A Brown Scapular Cake

Today, inspired by Anne, I made a Brown Scapular Cake to celebrate the feast of Our Lady of Mount Carmel.

For our cake I used a simple yellow GOLD cake mix (baked in a 9x13 pan and cut in half) and topped with chocolate brown frosting. I used two brown pipe cleaners for the cord, and then decorated it with some white frosting.

My sister Julianna stopped by for a couple minutes before work, and I talked her into drawing the image of Our Lady, since she is such an artist! Didn't she do a beautiful job?! I did the (attempted) writing on the right. (I am very new to cake decorating, but it sure is fun!!) In case you can't read it, it says:

"Whosoever dies wearing this SCAPULAR
shall not suffer eternal fire..."

  1. Genius! And it looks good enough to eat!

  2. Jessica, how clever! What a simple thing to do! (Maybe an edible photocopy of the image would work for those of us without access to your sister!) :)

  3. Oh that Jessica! She's makin' the rest of us look bad! :)

    I showed my family the picture of Anne's cakes from last year. They were quite impressed. As much as I thought I might make it, I did not. Slacker, I know. ;-)

  4. It's gorgeous Jessica, I am sure you had a lovely feast, thanks for sharing it here for all of us!!

    Thank you for sharing all the recipes for July in advance.
    Since the Feast day isn't until July 16, I think I may be able to do this beautiful cake!
    Mixing Catholicism with food plants great seeds in my children.
    God bless.

  6. Just found this today through Twitter. It is my son's birthday. I will have to do this next year!
