Sweet Jesus: Christ On A Cake, or 18 Ways of Baking With Jesus
We eat his body, drink his blood, and lick his sweet, creamy vanilla frosting. Here are 18 depictions of Christ on a cake. Not as damnable as the Star Wars nativity scenes, but pretty close. Sacrilicious!
18. The 7 Layers of Hell Cake
Usually, strippers bust out of cakes, but why shouldn't God? Via the blog of an Episcopal priest who is also a "baseball fan, obituary watcher, reader and procrastinator."
17. Happy 2010th-ish Birthday Jesus Cake
Says the baker, Stephanie Burke, "I don't bake more than twice a year, but when I do, I feel like it counts."
16. Lamb Of God Cake
Hmm...not sure I like the way Shepherd Jesus is looking at that lamb. Or is that a cat? Via Margaret's Workshop.
15. Crown of Thorns Cake
Nice job on the detailed thorns, but how about we work on the baby a bit? Via Christian Nightmares. Just tell me it's chocolate.
14. Sweet Jesus, It's Your Birthday Concept Cake
This one's still in the planning stage. Looks photoshopped. Via Dr. Jim's Thinking Shop.
13. M&M's For God's Colorblindness Cake
Reminiscent of those tests for colorblindness. Not a problem. Jesus loves everyone, the sick and the hale. Via Josh Chelsea Hudson's blog.
12. Walking On Water Cake
At first I was like, why is Jesus at the beach? Then I was like, Oh. Jesus is at the beach. Parting the waves. Walking on water. Drinking beer. Kicking it with a flamingo...huh? Via Darwin Central.
11. Leeches for Jesus Cake
They do, too, look like leeches. And that little rodent creature by the side looks like a guinea pig. Via Tom Howat on Flickr.
10. Yay! Jesus! Cake!
Baker Courtney Awesome says, "The cross came off a bit in the car but this is one pretty little Jesus cake!!"
9. Glow Worm of God Cake
Who's a little glow worm? Whooo's a cute little glow worm? Yesh you are. Via Easy Birthday Cakes.
8. Formal Baby Shower Masquerading As Funeral Cross Cake
Both fetal and chilling. I agree with the blogger from IH8Religion who says, "This is a baby shower cake. It looks like a baby funeral cake, no?"
7. Tiny Baby Jesus With Cupcake Sheep
Cupcakes as sheep. Brilliant! Via Sophisticakes GA.

5. Crucifixion Cake...With Candles
Baked by Yevgenya Chityan. Red velvet cake with chocolate mascarpone frosting. Note the candle spikes into his hands and feet. He looks sad. Though, of course he would.
