Flames of Pentecost Cupcakes

When the day of Pentecost had come, they were all together in one place. And suddenly a sound came from heaven like the rush of a mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. And there appeared to them tongues as of fire, distributed and resting on each one of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance. (Acts 2: 1-4)

The Paschal season comes to a close Sunday with Pentecost, the day the Holy Spirit descended upon the Apostles. There are many simple ideas out there for celebrating the gift of the Holy Spirit with children, and for several years I’ve been wanting to make these cute treats. They have the added bonus of being seasonal too!

Flames of Pentecost Cupcakes with sliced strawberries “flames” to represent the tongues of fire!

Pentecost is not as easy to explain to children as Christmas or Easter, but is certainly a day worth celebrating!

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control…If we live by the Spirit, let us also walk by the Spirit. (Galatians 5:22-23, 25)

  1. Those are fantastic! If I didn't have a newborn, I would make those to bring to church tomorrow. Maybe next year.
