Mother’s Day Cake
Posted by delectabledelightsbyjess
So for mother’s day I made two sunflower cakes. One for Gary’s mom and one for my mom. This one turned out the best.
This is a yellow cake with a chocolate fudge frosting in the middle with some fresh raspberries. The outside frosting is a vanilla butter cream. For the sunflower seeds I used mini chocolate chips.
To create the petals of the flower I recommend a leaf tip (such as tip 352). I was bummed because I forgot my piping tools and had to make do with a plastic baggie. If you do not have a leaf tip, like I didn’t, you can cut a small triangle into the end of your plastic bag.
For the bottom and top piping I would recommend using a round tip (such as tip 3 or 12). Again because I forgot my piping tools I used a plastic bag and just cut the corner off. I tried to make sure that I made a small cut, I didn’t want to have a giant hole.
As seen from this Mother’s day cake, you don’t need professional tools to create a great looking cake. If you look at the surprise doll cake in my gallery, I iced it using a butter knife, and that turned out great. Basic household tools can get you pretty far!
