Pink Mother’s Day Cake

Hey guys! It’s Abeer from CakeWhiz again. Today, I will be sharing an easy tutorial for this gorgeous pink Mother’s  Day cake.

This is probably the coolest cake I have ever made and quite frankly, I haven’t even seen anything like this anywhere.

The idea for this cake came to me when I was reading a book about shapes with my little one. He said he wanted to make a cake pyramid… I thought it was a such a cool idea. So, I made this cake and he helped stick the flowers in place.

I used fondant flowers but you can use fresh flowers… that would look gorgeous!

I highly recommend using a pound cake to make this pyramid since it is firmer and the slices won’t topple down.

This would be a great cake to serve on Mother’s day brunch and even kids can help assemble it.

You guys know I am all about getting kids involved in the kitchen and this would be a great way to do that 🙂

Why do Cakes Fall in the Middle?

If there is too little moisture in the cake, it can fall.

Too much moisture can also make a cake fall.

If a cake is underdone, it will fall as it cools.

Sometimes jarring the cake by slamming the oven door or some other thing, will make a cake fall.

Can Frosted Cakes be Frozen?

Many cakes freeze very well even after they are frosted.

Just wrap well in plastic wrap or place in a container with air tight lid and freeze.
