Rosy Treats for the Feasts of St. Juan Diego and Our Lady of Guadalupe

Kathleen from ADMG Academy shares some wonderful ideas for the feasts of St. Juan Diego and Our Lady of Guadalupe this week!

Going with a rose theme, since Our Lady miraculously gave St. Juan Diego precious roses as a sign for the bishop, Kathleen suggests picking up some Pepperidge Farm Verona Cookies that look very similar to roses!

How easy is that?! I picked some up today myself! :)

Last year, Kathleen also made a beautiful rose cake using just a Silicone Rose Pan and a Strawberry Betty Crocker cake mix! Thank you so much for sharing Kathleen!

I also want to remind you all of the Chocolate Roses, Rose Cake and Rosy Punch in the archives, which would also be very appropriate for these feasts!

I myself plan to make a batch of Rose Cupcakes using this awesome pan, a strawberry cake mix and a bit of powdered sugar, for our Little Flowers meeting this week! Our theme for this month is Love of Neighbor and the Rose. What perfect timing!

Our Lady of Guadalupe, mystical rose, intercede for the Church, protect the Holy Father, help all who invoke you in their necessities. Since you are the ever Virgin Mary and Mother of the true God, obtain for us from your most holy Son the Grace of a firm faith and sure hope amid the bitterness of life, as well as an ardent love and the precious gift of final perseverance. Amen.

  1. The rose cakes turned out really cute. What fun ideas - anything rosy is always fun.

  2. I love the rose cupcake mold. I need to go get one this week.

  3. I've been meaning to get one of those rose cupcake pans specifically for Marian related feasts. . . they look great!

    Great ideas; thanks Jessica!
