Alejandro S. was getting married and felt sick during the reception and fell on the cake. He gives thanks to Saint Jude with this retablo because his fiancée was understanding although she laughed at him afterwards.

On my 60th birthday, my friends brought me a cake that I thought was real. But suddenly, I almost had a heart attack when a half naked sexy dancer came out of it. I thank Saint Charbel for this scare didn’t lead to anything serious and I wouldn’t have ended my birthday in the hospital.

Naughty students stole my wedding cake on a dare. We thank Saint Anthony because we got our cake back although it was slightly smashed. It’s a very bad sign to have a wedding party without a cake.

Laura and Catalina Peña were in a bad financial position. But since they were good pastry cooks, they had an idea of selling cakes. They thank Saint Paschal Baylon, a patron saint of cooks, because now they make enough money to support themselves and even to save something for hard times and also for having fun sometimes.

I made a very delicious cake for my daughter Marcela’s commitment dinner. But unfortunately my younger children are very gluttonous, so they ate almost the entire cake. But luckily—and forgive me God!—my daughter’s fiancé got measles, which he caught from his little sister. The dinner was canceled. And I’m immensely grateful to the Virgin of San Juan because the parents of the fiancé are very stiff and haughty and I didn’t know how to deal with such an embarrassing situation.

My boy Panchito ate a lot of sweets and felt severe pain in the stomach. Nothing helped him so I entrusted him to the Holy Child Doctor. With his divine help and with help of the doctor, Panchito is feeling well now. I offer this retablo for that.

I thank Saint Paschal, a patron saint of cooks, because with his divine inspiration I became a very good pastry cook. Together with my daughter we make cookies and cakes. We’re good at that and we’re earning a living for our family.

I entered in the bakery and saw some devils eating the cakes. For a moment I was frightened but then I summoned up my courage and prayed to Saint Ignatius of Loyola. And the devils immediately vanished. Thanks to Saint Ignatius.

My son studied to be a dentist, like my husband. But he was very annoyed to look in open mouths, and he felt unhappy. But one day he discovered that his real calling is to be a pastry-cook. He makes amazingly wonderful pastries and cakes. He even opened pastry-shop, and it is very popular. I thank, because he’s happy making such tasty cakes.
