i just made my mom a cake (her b day is saturday) She does not allow gifts but always wants her french vanilla cake. I have never made her a sheet cake, she is far to special for that! ...and the cake IS her gift. In the past I have made a mini layered cake and decorated it with butterflies and pansies (one mix will make 1 of each...8", 6" and 4" round cake), a two teired haert shaped cake but sepatated the layer with pillars (purple with pansies (her fav flower), this year I made a mini topsy turvy cake (used two mixes so each teir would have two layers to work with. This year i wanted something different with different colors so I made it match her card. I cant wait for her to see it! it came out great and I was pleased at my first attempt at the topsy turvy cake. I make all her cakes on the smaller side since there is only 7 of us eating it. I try to think of designes that will use one mix, no more than two
