Divide the batter between the 8-inch pan and the 9-inch pan and bake.

Let the cake cool completely before cutting or frosting.

Step 3: Cut paper

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.

Step 6: Use colors

Use your mother's favorite candies and flowers to finish decorating. Transfer the cake to a cake stand.
