Ombre Ruffle Cake
This stunning Mother’s Day cake makes use of Colour Splash food colours to create an impressive spectrum of colour on the outside and inside of this impressive cake. The ruffled effect on the outside of the cake is achieved by cutting thinly rolled sugarpaste with a petal cutter and ‘frilling’ the edges with a Bulbous Cone Modelling Tool. You can find our full How to Guide for making this cake here – Mother’s Day Ombre Cake Guide
These beautiful cupcakes are incredibly simple to make and look fantastic as part of a Mother’s Day spread. We used our Baked with Love patchwork cases and topped it off with some lovely pink cupcake swirls, coloured with a small amount of our Colour Splash gel in Pale Pink. The colour coordinating ‘mum’ and lustre butterfly toppers can also be found in our Mother’s Day range. Sweet, sparkling and simple!
If you’d rather take your cupcakes up a notch then this cupcake bouquet makes a wonderful gift! You may or may not have seen them before but cupcake bouquets are a fabulous idea for any special occasion. What better way to treat mum than with flowers and cake all rolled into one?!
Spoiling mum doesn’t have to be difficult or complicated thanks to our flower biscuit cutters! These lovely Mother’s Day biscuits were simply topped off using white sugar paste with a portion lightly coloured with Colour Splash gel in Lemon for the centre.
Lemon and Elderflower Drizzle
Lemon cake is a classic all-round favourite so why not make it extra special by adding some elderflower.
