Rosh Hashana or the Feast of Trumpets begins at sundown today. It is the biblical New Year’s celebration. The Spring Bible holidays tell of Jesus’ first coming, and the fall festivals are prophetic of His second coming.
Apple and Honey Cake
Apples and honey are a traditional food for this celebration. We are baking New Year’s cakes for our neighbors. (I’m on a sugar-free, yeast-free diet so there will be no cake for me.)
Our Jewish neighbors across the street will know this is a Rosh Hashana cake. Our neighbor next door with three children will see it as a welcome to the neighborhood cake (one day I’ll explain Rosh Hashana, as the Lord leads)
If you don’t have time for a homemade cake, add apples, honey and nuts to a yellow cake mix and get canned cream cheese frosting.

Apple Honey Cupcakes with Bubble Bee Cup Decorations
We are decorating with bubble bees made from chocolate covered raisins and almonds. Another idea is to make cupcakes and decorate with bees (found at craft stores).
Or check here for images of several adorable bee cupcakes ideas.
