Carolyn Snelling’s book Christ’s Cake.

A young boy meets Jesus in a dream, bakes a cake for our Savior’s December 25th birthday and offers inspiration for a new family tradition!


On one very special day each year, many people across the country close their eyes, make a wish and blow out candles as they enjoy a bite of cake in celebration of their birthday. In this heart-warming story, one precious 5-year-old boy named Jackson remembers another remarkable birthday—and decides that Jesus, too, should have his very own cake!
