mother's day goodies....!

mother's day cookie cake

well re-posting after the blogger snafu....!

...does everyone make their own mother's day treats or maybe that's just me....?

....these are a mashup of i am baker's rose cake (which is showing up everywhere these days) and the infamous bakerella's mother's day cupcakes.....btw-although bakerella is pretty much synonymous with cake pops, her other creations are awesomely awesome as this re-creation of her niece's artwork in cake!...i am so doing this one of these days!...i think i can easily blame her for my candy melt obsession too...!

...and while i'm at it...that amanda....she does some really cool cakes with surprises inside like this easter egg cake.....and i totally thought her russian doll cake was going to have layers of russian nesting dolls inside (she probably can do that but doesn't want everyone else to give up and stop baking)...

...the sugar cookie cake is made from the same base as these frosted sugar cookie bars....(definitely use the lemon zest, it makes the recipe)

...and i finally got around to using the letter mold i got awhile ago.....i used candy melts and before totally hardened....added a tooth pick at the bottom of the letter (so you can stick it into the cake)....

....and since i had some leftover cupcake batter from these....i made some mini bundt cakes too.....well because who doesn't love mini bundt cakes...?

.....i used much smaller roses than amanda's rose cake....using a wilton #17 tip but you can probably use any open star tip.....and make sure the frosting is at room temp and not's much easier to pipe the flowers that way.....

.....and after a couple it gets pretty easy to get the hang of it.....

mother's day cakes end up with a bunch of cute bundt cakes and a big sugar cookie cake....!

mother's day cakes

....oh and i found out that my kiddos that usually only eat the frosting off a cupcake (go figure!) will eat slices of the the frosted sugar cookie cake....

....hope everyone had a great mother's day....and lookie at one of the mother's day card's i got..... doesn't get much better than that!
