Have you seen those darling baby wish cards that guests fill out at baby showers? They share wishes and hopes for the baby and are just generally adorable. These “Dear Mom” Mother’s Day printable notes are inspired by those wish cards. Prompts like “You taught me to…” and “You make me laugh when…” provide the perfect starting point to share some encouragement and gratitude this Mother’s Day.

Are you ready to celebrate Mother’s Day? A DIY “mom” cake topper is a sweet addition to your Mother’s Day festivities and it’s super simple to make.

DIY cursive cake topper for Mother's Day

You Will Need: pre-made chocolate cake (from Whole Foods or any grocery store that sells plain frosted cakes), chocolate candy melts, wax paper, “m-o-m” printout (see link below), and a pastry bag and tip (I have the closed star tip from the best-ever icing kit- love!)

Directions: Set the wax paper on top of the printed “m-o-m” paper, weighting the corners down so the wax paper doesn’t curl. Follow the directions on the Candy Melt bag for melting the candy melts. Once melted, scoop the melted chocolate into the pastry bag, twisting the bottom to prevent drips. Position the pastry bag filled with chocolate above the word and trace with the pastry bag tip. The chocolate comes out quickly, so work fast. Let the chocolate set up, peel off the wax paper and place on top of a cake bound for Mother’s Day festivities- gorgeous!
