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
Step 1: Prepare cakes
Prepare the box of cake mix according to the package directions using water, the egg, and oil. Preheat oven.
Step 2: Place in pan
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 4: Place cake
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.
Step 5: Frost cake
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."
Step 6: Use colors
Use your mother's favorite candies and flowers to finish decorating. Transfer the cake to a cake stand.
Before the advent of baking powder, wedding cakes at medieval Anglo-Saxon weddings were dry, hard, unleavened biscuits.
