What are some ideas for decorating a Mother’s Day cake?
Frosting, icing, whipped cream and fondant are creative ways to decorate your Mother’s Day cake. Topping off with chocolates, nuts, fruit and fresh flowers can also make your cake stand out. Minimal designs and “naked” cakes without frosting can provide an elegant look and plenty of taste with luscious filling and flavor infusions.
Fondant is ideal for ice cream cakes because the sculpted designs, like curated flowers on top of the cake, do not melt at room temperature. Icing and a piping bag can also be used to decorate layer, bundt and carrot cakes by writing warm messages, like “Happy Mother’s Day.” Toppings like mixed nuts, fruit and chocolates can also be aesthetically placed on any type of cake for a delicious and decorative appeal. For a bright, refreshing look, add a freshly-picked flower to the top of your cake, like an edible nasturtium on top of chocolate buttercream frosting.
