Our tradition says that Rosh Hashanah is the anniversary of the creation of the world. So why not throw the world a birthday party!
I heard about this tradition from a rabbi who is so busy during this time of year that their family needed a easy tradition for the kids to look forward to. It’s a great way to acknowledge the holiday especially if you’re busy and not much of a baker.
All you need for this one is a birthday cake and maybe some streamers (my kids love streamers). Whatever will get your kids excited.
You can buy a grocery store cake and have them write on it for you or make a box cake at home.
I got a custom cake design printed for this occasions. Many grocery stores and bakeries can print a custom image onto a cake for you, but I like to have them printed by Print n Eat on Etsy. Print and ship the custom edible cake topper and then I can put it on a cake that I make myself. This year I’m using the design below.
