Friends of the family have asked me to make them a cake for a Palm Sunday event this weekend. They asked for a 12" round yellow cake with lemon curd filling and buttercream icing - easy enough.

The decorations, though, I'm not sure about. She asked if I could use fresh blueberries, or if not, maybe Easter egg shaped fondant decorations on the top. I'm having trouble figuring out a way to make this look nice. I could do a basket weave around the sides of the cake and fill the top with berries... but otherwise, I'm out of ideas. I don't want to just stick flat fondant decorations on top - seems so blah!

Help!

I wouldn't use Easter eggs or anything of that sort. Palm Sunday is a religious day, so I would probably try to include some of the more religious aspects of Easter. Maybe do a leaf border that looks similar to palm leaves with some lilies or a cross or something. I hope that helps!

Maybe you can gather one or two ideas from here.

Thanks for the ideas! Those cakes are beautiful! I'm afraid to go too religious because the easter eggs were her idea. I'll probably try to do something fun and springy with fruits and maybe 3D fondant eggs or something.

You're welcome. I thought about taking the palm sunday theme too seriously and I think it's better to do something fun and springy.
