Cupcake Toppers for Pope Benedict XVI

Last year, in honor of our beloved Holy Father's Birthday, I made my children Pope Benedict's Coat of Arms Cupcakes.

Expanding on this idea, Catholic Cuisine reader Lara from Canada created some cute little cupcake toppers using the Coat of Arms to share with you all!   Thank you Lara!

UPDATE:  You can print the updated Cupcake Toppers for Pope Benedict's 84th Birthday here

Lord Jesus Christ, You willed to build your Church on Peter the Rock and the Popes who have succeeded him through the ages. Pour forth your grace on our Holy Father, that he may be a living sign and an indefatigable promoter of the unity of the Church.

Help him to proclaim your message to all people and to listen to the message that comes to him from the consensus of all its members and from the world that You made. Make him serve others after your example and in accord with his traditional title: "Servant of the servants of God."
Unite us closely to him and make us docile to his teachings. Amen.

  1. Oh, my goodness Jessica!! Thank you so much for this post! I was wanting a fast and easy way to celebrate the Holy Father's birthday today with the kiddos! As always, you rawk!! :D

    God bless Papa Bene!!!

  2. This makes me remember when I was little. We had a few cupcake toppers left over from something; things like that just weren't as available cheaply in superstores back in the 60's. My brother and I would BEG my mother to use them on two cupcakes or jello or pudding, anything, for us.

    Being free with toppers orients children's knowledge of more celebrations in the world and the church than just having some action figure topper or Mickey. These are just great!
