The Jesus Christ Cake




We really pushed ourselves this time . And we are pleased with the outcome. Our good friend, Korin asked us to do her birthday cake and she had a unique request.....Crucified Jesus. So we took the challenge and got to work. He is our favorite cake so far. So Happy Birthday Korin and Happy Birthday to Jesus!

  1. So rad Jana!! I didn't even know you made Ethan a cake too (below). When did you give that to him? Did you drive it out to Corona on a Monday?!? I feel so out of the loop haha. Anyhow, the blogspot is looking awesome. I'm proud of you! This Jesus cake was sure a strange request, but I love odd shit like that. You rocked it, sis!!!!

  3. This is offensive to everyone on the planet, Christians and non-Christians alike.

    Muslims on the other hand...might go for it!

  7. gross. posting this shows that the blogger has no class and is reaching to get attention by doing something controversial and offensive. would you post an anti-semetic cake or an anti-muslim cake as well? think about it. your blog would be taken down for that.

  8. While I do understand how this could be offensive, how is it any more insulting or 'gross' or 'anti-Christian' than a painting of the Christ with stigmata, or even a sculpture of a bleeding Jesus on a cross (which one sees in churches all the time)? Is it not a bit similar to the eating of the body and blood of Christ that takes place at a Catholic mass?

    Besides, if our Creator is at all anthropomorphic anyhow, I'd like to believe It has a sense of humor. Laughter, forgiveness and tolerance are more loving expressions of divinity than are anger, umbrage and retribution, right? (Which do indeed all happen to be expressions of divinity as well...especially if you're reading the Old Testament).

    I'm for the cake!

  10. controversial, indeed. Though I hardly see this cake as being anti anyone or anything. It seems pretty objective in fact. An impartial and representational food sculpture of a man who most agree existed but can't agree why. Men continue to kill each other over this guy every day, and fight with words in blogs over who's right and wrong, instead of listening to his message of love. Are there rules written about acceptable ways to depict Jesus? Artists have showed us suffering Christ in thousands of paintings and films. I've even seen a Jesus comic strip and action figure. Why does a Jesus cake cross the line? Lighten up. What's wrong with edible Art. Look at it, observe it, digest it. Please try not to be offended. Instead have yourself a piece of cake for Christ's sake.

  11. This is so cool!!!

    Anyone who thinks this is offensive needs to lighten up! Why can't she be creative with cake? What about people who mass-produce Jesus doodads for profit? This was one person being creative for a friend.

  12. Very nice work but, where is the gore? Some strawberry jelly would have given it that "the Passion" look good christians always crave for.

    Anyway with or without the blood, your Jesus is good enough to eat. And the way he is looking up, like begging to be eaten. It's like, "Jesus said:Eat Me"

  14. All of you shut the fuck up. Cry about something that matters. God does not exist. The cake is grand.

  15. It's very offensive, you are making light of a sacrifice given as a substitute to you having to pay the price for your own sins! ("The wages of sin is death"Roamans 6:23) It's one thing to reject the gift being given, it's another to poke fun at someone giving their life for you! This is blasphemy at it's peak, you should be ashamed of yourself!

  16. I like it! I would put this on my Easter table (seriously). It's creative and well done. Good job!

  17. "offensive to everyone on the planet, Christians and non-Christians alike."

    ...REALLY? I happen to be a non-Christian, but I admire Jesus Christ and his teachings. However, this DOES NOT offend me at all.
