Hi Bold Bakers!

Spoil your Mum this Mother’s Day with these Big & Bold Celebration Cakes & Cupcakes.

The beauty of these cakes is that they look impressive AND they are easy to decorate and recreate. Trust me! I had a fear of cake decorating for a long time but I found some simple techniques (like the ones used for these cakes) and applied them to regular cakes and just look at the results. It is my guarantee that you can also create any of these cakes, yes you!

Mother’s Day only comes once a year but she loves you all year round so make it really special. And nothing says “I love you” more than a mixture of sugar, egg, flour, chocolate and sprinkles right?

I don’t know about you but when it comes to gifts I usually bake something. Partially because I like to feed people but also because it takes a lot of thought and care to make something handmade. In my opinion baked good are one of the best gifts you can give or receive. I hope you find something your mum will love amongst these Mother’s Day Desserts.
