The other day my daughter said she wanted to make mini cakes. “What are those?” I asked.
“Well,” she said, smiling. “They are made with cookies and frosting with sprinkles on top.”
Hmm. Sounded interesting. And yummy!
“Can we go to the store for the ingredients?” she asked. “I’ll pay.”
Since she offered, I thought why not? After all, each day God gives us is a day to celebrate. Right?
God has given us so much to be thankful for—like family and friends. He also gives us food to eat, clothes to wear, and a comfy bed to sleep in.
Speaking of thankfulness, here are some verses from the Bible to show gratitude:
Therefore I will praise you, LORD, among the nations; I will sing the praises of your name. ~ Psalm 18:49
We praise you, God, we praise you, for your Name is near; people tell of your wonderful deeds. ~ Psalm 75:1
Then we your people, the sheep of your pasture, will praise you forever; from generation to generation we will proclaim your praise. ~ Psalm 79:13
Let the heavens rejoice, let the earth be glad; let the sea resound, and all that is in it. Let the fields be jubilant, and everything in them; let all the trees of the forest sing for joy. ~ Psalm 96:11-12
Back to the mini cakes . . .
Here’s what you need:
1 package of Oreo cookies (or any type of “sandwich” style cookie)
1 tub of frosting (Chocolate is my favorite. What about you?)
Here’s what you do:
1. * Spread frosting on the top of one cookie.
2. * Place another cookie on top.
3. * Set the cookies on a plate.
4. * Spread frosting on top and all around like a cake.
5. * Pour sprinkles on top.
Celebrate God’s goodness and enjoy!
