Charlotte's totally yummy looking cheesecake, I decided to have a sweet celebration :)
It didn't come out quite as red as I would have liked, darn cheap food colors (I need to get a good Wilton red paste...), but otherwise I'm quite happy with the results.
Ironically enough, the color has darkened with the passage of time (no, we didn't get it all eaten on Friday ;).
Hope everyone had a nice time for The Immaculate Heart as well...
Devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus focuses mostly on His divine love for mankind and encourages our humility, gratitude, obedience, and adoration; devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary focuses on Mary's love for God and encourages our emulating her humility, gratitude, obedience, and adoration. Mary as loving Mother of Jesus Who suffered for us; Mary as Mother of the Church; Mary as obedient daughter, Mary as our Gevirah (Queen Mother of Israel) -- we ponder her interior life in each of these roles, consecrate ourselves to Jesus through her, make reparations for offending her as our Mother, ask her intercession for us with her Son, and emulate her as the model of Christian perfection. ~ per Fisheaters.com
