Jessica @ How Sweet

Beautiful. I wish I could buy one of these from you on Sunday because lemon is my mom's favorite flavor and well... I think we all know I wouldn't have the patience for this!

AMANDA!!! Oh my goodness...this is so sweet, and simple, and thoughtful, and original...and PERFECT! Oh, I LOVE it! LOVE!

Nourhan @ Miss Anthropist's Kitchen

Such an elegant, thoughtful, and simple Mother's Day cake! :)


Beautiful! I love simple elegance. I have used quotes in the past for wedding cakes, graduation and birthday cakes. It always works.


Your handwriting is so nice... did you pipe the letters on the cake or are they fondant?


Simple beautiful Amanda!....just like you!!

Happy Mother's Day!



Amy | She Wears Many Hats

If one could be in love with a cake, I may choose this one as a mate. How perfect! The quote, the flavor combo ... everything about it.

( Although, truth be told, I'm not so sure I'm that kind of mom to say I never cared for cake. My kids know me much too well. ;) )


Simple, elegant, and beautiful :) I love it.


Beautiful, *simply* beautiful.

Jennifer Nixon

Absolutely perfect! :)

Amanda Rettke

I piped on the letters MsBrownBird! :)


Love the quote & the simple beauty of this cake, you always make me smile!


Once again, beautiful! That is a great quote :)


I love this cake! My mom would be the one saying let's split a piece lol :)

Cookbook Queen

You always come up with the best ideas!! Gorgeous cake :)


Perfect sentiment for moms everywhere, Amanda. I hope that's what my children think of me when I'm old and gray.


Such a sweet idea. Any mother would be delighted to enjoy a piece of that cake on her day, myself included.

Robyn | Add a Pinch

Oh my word! This is absolutely gorgeous! So elegant and would make any sweet Mother's Day just perfect.

Stephanie - Chocolate and Toast

Gorgeous. Now I really wish I had spent more time practicing my piping skills. Do you think it would have the same impact if it appears to have been piped by a three year old?


Oh, send me a piece!! That looks divine. Inside and out. I love how it's elegantly simple. PERFECT!! =-D


Yet again another stunner!!


I've always loved that "pie" quote. I love that you changed it up for this cake ;O)

(P.S. This is probably going to be annoying, but check your wording on the sentence that comes after the third picture. I'm pretty sure you meant to say "I'm"... Have a great day!)

Kelle Lujan

I know it's awful, but the first thing I thought after I read the quote was "because she knows there will be plenty left of her kid's piece." Or maybe that's just how it goes in my house. Truly though, lovely cake and lovely quote.


Mother's Day posts mean I've been reading your most lovely and inspirational blog for a whole year now. :) You never cease to amaze me with your talent and I hope you continue to do so for many more years to come!


Gorgeous - although makes me feel like a bad mom. I'd hide the cake and save it all for me :)

shelly (cookies and cups)

so simple and gorgeous! I just love your style, girl!
That quote is precious..I'm afraid, though, that my kid's WILL not be saying that about me ;)


Absolutely PERFECT!! I have been delegated to bring dessert this Saturday and hopefully I can duplicate this wonderful creation. Thanks for sharing.


LOL @ Stephanie - Chocolate and Toast - piping of a 3-year-old. My thoughts exactly.

My only chance would be to type this in a lovely font on the PC to print out to use as a template around the cake!


This post made me a little weepy! So pretty- I love lemon.


Precious, just like our moms. How in the world do you keep your piping on the sides perfectly level?


Beautiful cake and lemon is my favorite!

Diane {Created by Diane}

What a great Mother's Day Cake!!! Oh that saying certainly does describe moms they give, give, give and know that deep down it's appreciated.

pamela ponder

I love it a perfect gift for any mother!!!


You always make such pretty cakes. And lemon is one of my weaknesses, so this one looks even MORE appealing - if that is possible.

Molly Chester

Holy smokes! Your work is very inspiring and beautiful...


this is beautiful... describes my mom too! even though she deserves all 4 pieces ;)


Simple, elegant and beautiful. I love this cake.

Rachel @ Baked by Rachel

So sweet and I totally want a slice! :)

Jenny Flake



absolutely stunning. I have seen the quote before but you interpretation with the cake is just fantastic. Your mom is so lucky.


I love this simple cake. It's not boring at all, very elegant. And is that frosting? How on earth do you get it to be so smooth! I could use some serious help with my cakes. :)

Ana Powell

Absolutely elegant cake, I LOVE IT ♥

emily @ thehappyhome

what a perfect, simple, and stunning cake!

The Texas Peach

Love this cake! What a lovely quote, and I love the way you piped it onto the side of the cake. It makes it look so special! The quote sounds just like my mom. She is a very giving and selfless person too!

Claire K Creations

What a gorgeous mothers day cake. Now I want to rethink my plans!


The perfectly simple, elegant cake to celebrate the wonderful quality known as a mother's love!

As I read the quote in your blog, my eyes welled with tears as I fondly recalled a Mother's Day of long ago. 6 children, with the loving guidance of their daddy, swirling around the kitchen on Mother's Day morning, preparing breakfast for their "beloved queen" (it was her day to be queen for a day!).
These days, mom suffers physically and emotionally from Parkinson's Disease. She no longer has memories to help her remember the fond moments. 5 minutes after we've visited her, she won't know that we've visited her, nor will she recognize us when we get there to see her sweet face.
However, my beautiful, wonderful mother still deserves to know that she was and is the light of my life... and she will definitely enjoy the sweetness of the cake as we lovingly feed it to her. :)


I'm going to scour your site to find a cake to make for my birthday. I'm sure it won't look half as amazing as anything you do.

Sylvie @ Gourmande in the Kitchen

I'm pretty sure that quote describes you my sweet friend. Happy Mother's day to you too!


Darling. And I could not agree more with that quote. Speaks volumes.
