On the Feast of Christ the King

Christ the King is the last major feast day in the liturgical year, falling on the last Sunday before Advent. So we had a big dinner and made a crown cake!

The cake itself was an oat cake (using oat flour made by processing rolled oats in the food processor) baked in the cathedral pan again, and then I made a cream cheese honey frosting and used my food coloring for the first time in a baked good (we made edible finger paints with them so far, but nothing to actually eat).

It ended up being more yellow-looking than gold, but oh well. Then the girls added "jewels" (Sun Drops - I don't recommend them, by the way, as far as tasting good goes!).

There - it sort of resembles a crown, maybe a bit...

Happy Feast of Christ the King!!!
