Check out the amazing display created by Jeannie Gearin using some of the new cameo molds and the ribbon roses.
Of course, a day off from cooking is in order for Mother's Day. A special dessert table just for Mom is an even better treat. The traditional colors of pink and blue, reminiscent of the early days of childhood, are always a favorite of mine.
An "M" for Mom and a sugar peony grace the cake centerpiece.
Sugar cookies are adorned with a detailed floral cameo. The small areas are easier to fill using a small cel stick and then a few minutes in the freezer helps the mold release. A crimper finishes the edge of the fondant circle.
Oval sugar cookies each topped with a different cameo and framed with a molded setting.
Luster dust brings out the detail of the flowers. No sprinkles are needed on this cupcake.
|Because so many of my pearl molds, make better single pearls than strings of pearls, that is what I use them for now. They come out very evenly that way.|
|Ribbon roses are so pretty and versatile.|
Making them from a mold goes very quickly.

Oval petit fours are topped with cameos. I find the easiest way to make petit fours is to press cake pop dough into a small square pan to the desired height. Freeze for about an hour. Then cut out desired shapes. Glaze with poured fondant.
I hope you have picked up some ideas for your Mother's Day table. Or maybe, someone will make one of these treats for you!
