Well, I guess that depends on what flavors she likes.  Does she like fruit fillings in her cakes?  Does she like chocolate?  Vanilla?  Coffee flavors?

AIf its your moms thirty something birthday I can only assume that you aren't very old maybe in your teens I'm just guessing. Anyways going off my assumption I would either go with either vanilla or chocolate whatever you think your mom would like better. I than would just go with a buttercream filling too just easier for you to do. This is all on the assumption that you are in your teens and are being a really nice daughter/son wanting to make your mom a nice birthday cake. How sweet you are wanting your moms birthday to be special.

Hmm. Purple. Does she like grape flavor? Is there such a thing as a grape flavor cake?

If I hadn't been presented with a picture, I'd have suggested either spice, chocolate, or maybe strawberry-marble. But none of those really go with purple.

If you would like a flavour to tie into the colour scheme you are going with... perhaps

Blueberry or Blackberry or a mixture of both.......mixed berries.

When mixed with BC or White Chocolate Ganache - they give a Lilac/purple hue.

Just a thought.

hbquikcomjamesl suggested Grape.

Yes, you can use Grapes..... dark grapes are lovely in a cake.

They more or less melt yet one can still taste and get the texture when eating the cake.

If fresh -  gently simmered with a bit of sugar - allowed to cool then  place grapes in a sieve over a bowl to catch the juice.

You can use the juice in your batter - then gently mash the grapes with the back of a fork and also incorporate them into the batter.

 

If using canned grapes - drain as above and again, use the juice and gently mashes grapes in your batter.

 

Just use the juice in replacement of any other liquid you might have used.
