Paul Bitten By A Viper Log Fire Cake

 "Paul Bitten By Viper" 

Log Fire Cake

 Acts 28:1  And when they were escaped, then they knew that the island was called Melita.
Acts 28:2  And the barbarous people shewed us no little kindness: for they kindled a fire, and received us every one, because of the present rain, and because of the cold.
Acts 28:3  And when Paul had gathered a bundle of sticks, and laid them on the fire, there came a viper out of the heat, and fastened on his hand.
Acts 28:4  And when the barbarians saw the venomous beast hang on his hand, they said among themselves, No doubt this man is a murderer, whom, though he hath escaped the sea, yet vengeance suffereth not to live.
Acts 28:5  And he shook off the beast into the fire, and felt no harm.
Acts 28:6  Howbeit they looked when he should have swollen, or fallen down dead suddenly: but after they had looked a great while, and saw no harm come to him, they changed their minds, and said that he was a god.

  • 1 Chocolate Cake Mix
  • 2 cans of Chocolate Frosting and 1 White Frosting
  • Printable "Fire With Snake" Template
  • Fork-to run lines in the frosting to make it look like a log

 Bake a regular cake and let it cool. Take some dental floss and cut the cake down the middle.

  Now you should have two pieces of cake!

 Pick up one of the pieces of cake and lay it on top of the other piece of cake.

 Okay now your cake should look like this.

 Now slap some chocolate frosting all over it. Skip the front and back of the log, because you will be putting some different colored frosting on this part.

 Okay, now add some tan colored frosting to the front and to the back. Just mix some white frosting and chocolate frosting together to get this color. Do a tacky job like I did here in the picture. (Just kidding)

 Grab your fork and give the chocolate frosting a good back scratch. Just run the fork down the sides and top. 

 This is what a good job looks like. haha.  You should have a piece of cake that resembles a wooden log now.

 Do the tan part in the front and back with the fork making a circular motion. Your finished log should look like this now.

 Just print and laminate the snake fire template and stick down in the top of the cake. Not to shabby, huh! This is the finished cake. Your kids are sure to remember the lesson on Paul being bitten by a viper. This was a very easy cake to make.
