You Will Need
- 1 box of cake mix, any flavor
- An egg
- A 9-inch round cake pan
- An 8-inch round cake pan
- Parchment paper
- A 12-inch cardboard round
- Two 12-ounce cans of frosting
Prepare the box of cake mix according to the package directions using water, the egg, and oil. Preheat oven.
Place in pan
Divide the batter between the 8-inch pan and the 9-inch pan and bake.
Use the scissors to cut a 6-inch circle out of parchment paper and place it on top of the 8-inch cake. Trim the cake around the parchment paper so the cake is 6 inches in diameter.
Place the 9-inch cake on the 12-inch cardboard round. Spread some frosting on the middle of the 9-inch cake and place the 6-inch cake on top.
Frost the cake with the spatula, starting at the sides. Decorate the cake by putting ribbon around the top layer of the cake to form a hat ribbon, and place flowers on the "brim."
Use your mother's favorite candies and flowers to finish decorating. Transfer the cake to a cake stand.
