For Mother’s day, I made this beautiful cake with jumbo heart sprinkles.

I have lately been thinking how I would describe my style of cake decorating and I am NOT entirely sure…

Cake decorators are known for their UNIQUE styles. 

Some prefer making whimsical, topsy turvy cakes.

Some like working with royal icing and doing intricate scroll work.

ALL I know is that I like working with fondant and I tend to lean towards SIMPLE, uncomplicated designs with LOTS of color.

Perhaps that’s my STYLE????

Anyways, enough with my ramblings. Let’s talk about Mother’s day! 

Mother’s day is officially on Sunday but we celebrated a little early.

And this is what I made…A two tiered mango cherry cake, covered in vanilla buttercream icing, marshmallow fondant and lots of colorful homemade heart sprinkles.

YUP! I am obsessed with my HOMEMADE sprinkles. I have used them on cakes, cupcakes, cookies, brownies and God knows what else.

My son also likes to eat them when I am not looking….hahahah.

Then, stack the 6×6 cake on top of that cake.
Make sure to use wooden dowels or bubble tea straws for support.
