A Mighty Miter Cake

~Happy Feast of St. Nicholas, Bishop of Myra~

How about making a Mighty Miter Cake 
for the Feast of St. Nicholas?
If not this year, there's always next year!

Our Ingredients:
Boxed Carrot Cake
(Because this is what our family loves)
Red Icing
Gold Icing
(It would also be yummy to use white cream cheese frosting with gold trim...think we'll try that next year!)

After baking the cake, we flipped it over and cut it into the Miter shape.
You can use any straight tool for your guide.
We just grabbed what was in arm's reach!
This was the result!
Then came the red frosting...
We cut out a cross stencil from plain white paper, after the red frosting dried a bit...
This was our guide for the gold cross in the center!
Then we added a free hand gold border 
for the final product!

Time to Enjoy!

The Prayer of St. Nicholas to Bless Your Day:
We call upon
Your mercy, O Lord
Through the intercession
of St. Nicholas,
keep us safe amid all dangers
so that we may go forward
without hindrance
on the road to salvation.

    P.S. I love the idea of making a white miter cake with cream cheese frosting! It would go so well with the carrot cake or even a spice cake!

  2. Love it and Carrot cake is myhusbands favorite. Next year for sure:)
