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!

    Milo's Kitchen, a part of California-based Big Heart Pet Brands, is taking its homestyle dog treats on the road this summer with the "Treat Truck."
