Happy Birthday, Mama Mary! 3 Cake Ideas And Recipes For This Joyous Day

Celebrate her birthday with these pretty and appetizing cakes!

September 8 marks the birthday of the Blessed Virgin Mary– a joyous and sacred occasion especially for Filipino Catholics. In Christianity, the day is formally known as the “Feast of the Nativity of Mary.”

Pope Paul VI, wrote in a document, Marialis Cultus, that Mama Mary’s nativity is considered the “hope of the entire world and the dawn of salvation” as it brings great joy to the Catholics. However, there is no reference in the Sacred Scriptures to the birth of Mary. It only appeared in Protoevangelium of James, an Apocrypha dated 200 AD.

And because it’s her birthday, it’s only fitting that Mama Mary be given a cake! Make something special for her today with these unique cake ideas and recipes you can try at home! (Read: 4 Books to Make You Love, Appreciate Mama Mary)
