Traditional flavored cakes might work for most occasions but why not celebrate Mom's special day with a rosy hued confection featuring something a bit more spirited. Bubbly pink champagne, creamy frosting and sweet light cake all come together to create this heavenly old fashioned treat.

A note to purists, I subbed budget friendly pink sparkling wine for the champagne
In the spirit of recycling I borrowed some leftover pink hued doves, (dyed in food coloring)
pink damask paper and gold letters used in my Love is in the Air Valentine Post
Since my Mother loves birds these worked well and were perfect with the color scheme, but butterflies or flowers would be nice accents as well.
Add some sparkle with sugar pink pearls and white sprinkles
and a "Mum" ribbon banner on bamboo skewers
Simple and quick for those with limited confectionery skills
Simple swirls of frosting
Serve with Tea in an elegant (yard sale) cup
Mothers hold their children's hands for a short while,
but their hearts forever.
PennyWise TipsThink Pink: Accent your table with pink flowers, ribbons, a vintage birdcage and of course a bottle of bubbly. This is a fun cake for milestone birthdays and other celebrations too
You might want to include a non-alcoholic dessert for any younger guests or those avoiding alcohol.
This is also a wonderful day to celebrate any woman (teacher, coach, mentor, friend) who has been like a Mother or a "Mom in spirit" to you.
