How to Have a Christ-Centered and Gluten-Free Halloween

At the By Grace Cakes bakery, we look at Halloween as a chance to preach Christ. Here are a few simple ways to keep Jesus Christ at the center of your Halloween.

1. Keep it Child-Like

What does it mean to keep Halloween child-like? Let this night be for Christ first, and then for the kids. Keep this in mind when picking out costumes and decorating your home. When opening up the door, to hand out candy, kids should ooooh and aaahhhh over a fairy princess! Don’t let it be a scary  zombie or inappropriately short dressed red riding hood.  Keep is a a fanciful night of fun for your kids, like seeing his or her favorite characters come to life.

2. Keep it Family Focused

When decorating your home, let the kids help. Pick out pumpkins as a family and bring them home to carve together. Roast some pumpkin seeds and make great memories together! So skip the ghouls and the goblins and keep it happy and homey:)

3. Keep Your Treats, Sweet

Skip the witches brew and the skeleton bones and stick with candy corn treats, God’s beautiful fall leaves, and pumpkin patches. Here is a free printable Halloween Cupcake Topper, to keep your fall family day, Christ centered.

Can You Hear Wedding Bells?

I was so priviledge to meet such a sweet, Christian client this week. She is such a dear lady with a heart for others.  By throwing her sister-in-law to be a beautiful bridal shower, my client wanted the bride to feel welcomed into the family. She had it all set. She wanted a wedding dress cupcake cake, and this is the result. God is good! It turned out wonderful! The family was so sweet that they even invited me to the bridal shower.  What a friend we have in Jesus! and what a sweet new friend I made (i.e. my client).

All the cakes where dusted with a little edible luster dust. Also, edible pearls on the wedding dress. The bride’s theme was country, so the cake boards were covered with jute and decorated to match the wedding colors.

New Flavor at the By Grace Cakes Bakery

Fresh out of the oven, a new flavor: Buttermilk Silver White Cupcakes. Gluten-free, with just a mildly sweet flavor. It always seems to work out from a sweet accident. Of course, as Christians, we know it’s by God’s grace:)

Here is a look at our latest creations. I say our because God is the designer and I just throw things in a bowl and stir (and even that is by God’s grace). Posted below are just a few of the things that I made for the Midland Antique festival. By the way, cake pops can last 7 hours in 82 degree weather before they melt. In case you were wondering:)

Gluten Free Cupcake Bouquets

DSC_2005I recently had an order for a red velvet cake flower bouquet. The icing is all buttercream, with the exception of the chrysanthemums, which are marshmallows. I would not recommend buttercream for a humid or hot day, but for a short period of time, these make a beautiful display.  The Lord blessed, and I was very happy with the result.

On information on how to order this bouquet, please select the following link: Gluten Free Cupcake Bouquet.
