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.

Wedding Cake Flavors: Thinking Outside The Box

The “Not So Famous” Wedding Cake Flavors

Traditional, decadent, wonderful wedding cake flavors such as vanilla bean, chocolate, almond and lemon have graced cake tables for years. Classics such as  red velvet, carrot cake and banana cake flavors have been the cake of choice for many happy celebrations. But what about these new fangled flavors that are popping up out of the imaginative minds of bakers everywhere? Is it “safe” to spend money on a cake flavor that your guests may not be accustomed to? Are theses flavors just a fad?  I leave you to ponder those questions. Here are some bold flavor choices that you and your fiancé may want to request at your next cake tasting.
