My best friend Barb wanted me to do her Mother-In-Law’s birthday cake this year. She was turning 87 so she wanted something special for her. I always wanted to do a hat shaped cake and this was the perfect time to do so. I got on the computer and looked at ladies hats and thought I liked the bonnet shaped hat the best to do in cake and icing.

Yellow was her favorite color so I started with that. I was at our local Walmart and found this yellow and white polkadot ribbon, and bought it to incorporate in the design.

The finished Mothers Bonnet Birthday Cake was a huge hit and the birthday girl was very pleased.

The back of the Bonnet Cake was as pretty as the front of the cake.
