September 8th is Our Lady\’s birthday and Sept 12th is the feast of \”The Holy Name of Mary\”! I thought I\’d share the \”M\” cake I made to celebrate these feast days last year. This cake is very easy to make if you have a 13 x 9-inch pan you can create it!
If you want to make an \”M\” cake, first bake a cake in a 13 x 9-inch rectangular pan.
After it has cooled cut it long-ways into 3 even sections. Then cut one of the 3 sections in half. (see picture below.)
Place your cut shapes onto a jellyroll pan or foiled cardboard sheet.
Create a \”M\” shape with the cut cake parts. I trimmed a few parts off to make it look a little more like an \”M\”.
Then, add icing. I added a few drops of blue food coloring to white icing for ours. 
Next, I decorated it with some icing flowers.
I also added coconut around our \”M\” for the coconut lovers in my house.
It was a great cake to celebrate our birthday party for Mary!
This would be a fun cake to make if you are teaching your kids about the letter \”M\”, too!
\”M\” is for Mary!
May Our Lady shower you with God\’s Grace!
