  1. All gorgeous and perfect for mom. My favorite is still the hydrangea cake, but they’re my favorite flower so I’m biased.

  2. Oh, love all of these! But, please tell me, Amanda, that someone else will be baking you a cake for Mother’s Day. You totally deserve it! 🙂

  3. I was looking and looking and it all of a sudden popped out ha ha (the swirly message). Very cute! These are all looovely ideas!

  4. Mother’s Day in Britain was a few weeks ago. I made a rainbow cake covered in white icing and it was a great surprise for my unsuspecting Mum who seemed really pleased with it. It was incredibly tall and we all agreed that it would have made a great Dr Seuss hat, so that will be one of my future projects. Thank you for the great ideas.

  5. Do you have a Happy Mother’s Day cake with a rainbow on it? If so, could I see a pic? Thank you!

  6. I love you blog! I just made a version of the Hyrdangia cake today for my MIL! Will make another one for my Mom next week when I see her 🙂 Thank you and God Bless you!

  7. Made your Rose cake for my birthday on Saturday – not quite your standard but ! was so pleased with the result! And complements!
