“Jesus Enters Jerusalem”

I’m teaching VBS this week, and each year I like one of my snacks to be a cupcake. It’s hard coming up with a cupcake that tells a story! Last year, I made cupcakes for the Parable of the Sower.

While planning my lessons, I decided I would make a cupcake to represent Jesus entering Jerusalem on a donkey! My classroom helpers wanted the same chocolate-on-chocolate-filled-with-chocolate from last year, so voilà!

I felt bad for asking the kitchen helpers to separate out the animal crackers that looked like donkeys!


Chocolate cake, filled and topped with chocolate buttercream, with graham cracker crumbles and dehydrated mini-marshmallows, and an animal cracker.

The kids loved them!
