Anyone have some favorite cakes saved they could help me out with?

I want to make a cake Sunday for my Mother in laws birthday, she will be like 55 or so I believe.

I want something simple, yet classy and I just can't think of anything right now. Anyone have something that comes to mind?

Wasc with a strawberry filling is always pretty when cut. Or have you tried Dorie Greenspan's Perfect Party Cake? (Lemon with Raspberry filling)

A cupcake bouquet is always a winner- or just make flower cupcakes.

Here is a site that has Dorie's original recipe.

If you haven't- check out her book-Dorie Greenspan's Baking: From My Home to Yours. Really one of the best baking books.

One of my favorite cakes is a square mother's day cake in pale yellow with RI daisies and lace points all around the border. It was done by skisinokinowa, but I cannot find her user name or the cake now. I will try to search some more. It is such a beautiful and simply elegant cake...if anybody has it, please post!

What about a present cake with a loop bow?
