Spinning Sun Cake

Several other contributors here have posted "Miracle of the Sun" cakes in the past. It's a fun way to celebrate either the May 13 Feast of OL of Fatima or the anniversary of the sun miracle itself - October 13.

Here is our addition to the miracle sun cakes. It's really easy and a hit with the kids as you can imagine. I just used a round, double layer cake. It was lemon with lemon frosting to get the yellow sun effect. I put it on our lazy suzan, inserted several candles into the side of the cake, lit them. Then spin the lazy suzan gently to make the sun cake spin. It looks pretty cool in the dark, too.

So commemorate the day the sun danced above Fatima, Portugal in October 1917 with a sun cake. Any cake would work. Use a simple one like this or one of the more elaborate ones psoted here in the past. Enjoy.

  1. Love this entry.

    And, just have to say: if 70,000 people saw the sun appear as a lemon cake with candles spinning on a lazy susan, THAT WOULD be a miracle !!

    Keep up the good work!
