On Mother's Day last year my parents came for lunch along with my Mother in law, and I made a raspberry cheesecake. The year before my eldest made me a lovely chocolate cake, as well as writing me a tear jerker of a poem which he read out in school assembly.
This year it's going to be a quiet affair, with just the 5 of us (unless there are any surprises that I don't know about!) as my parents are going to my brother's for the weekend. Instead they are visiting us this weekend, which times in nicely with Coppenrath & Weise challenging me to decorate a cake for Mother's Day.
I'm the first to admit that my fondant icing skills leave a lot to be desired so I opted for the 'more is more' approach and loaded up the cake with double cream whipped with Galaxy caramel hot chocolate, topped with Morello cherries and a bag of mini eggs.
I found a free printable Mother's day bunting on Pinterest which I tied to some dowels from the design kit.
The cake looked pretty impressive when it was finished and didn't take me long at all. It goes to show that you don't always need to bake your own cakes for a special occasion and can make a shop bought one your own with just a few additions.
I was provided with the cake and some additional items in the design kit for the purpose of this challenge.
