Today is the very special feast of Our Lady of Mt Carmel and I wanted to share with you our creation for the evening! I am not a great cook by any stretch of the imagination and so this cake is just two mud cakes I bought on special at Coles. (I walked through the front door of Coles and right in front was a big display of chocolate mud cakes – no joke!)
I cut the two cakes into the shape of each end of the scapular and printed a lovely picture of Our Lady giving the scapular to St Simon Stock. I had intended to use my icing equipment to write the words on the other cake but the smaller nozzle was playing up, so I printed the words up from the computer and iced around the two sheets in blue. New, brown shoe strings were used for the cord of the scapular and we were done – nothing too complicated at all!
I hope to post again tonight with prayers from my book and to talk about this special feast.
