In advance, make fondant hearts. Tint 3 oz. of fondant medium rose. Roll out 1/8 in. thick. Using second largest heart cutter in set, cut 1 heart. Using third largest heart cutter in set, cut four hearts. Brush edge of each heart with damp brush and attach pink sugar pearls. Let dry at least 24 hours.
Bake and cool cake. Place on foil-wrapped board, cut to fit. Ice sides and background areas smooth with white buttercream.
Tint 7 oz. of fondant dark rose. Roll out 1/8 in. thick. Using smallest heart cutter, cut 5 hearts. Using a damp brush, attach each dark rose heart to the center of each medium rose heart. Attach hearts to cake with buttercream.
Roll dark rose fondant into 3/8 in. diameter logs. Attach to crown point edges with icing. Roll eight 7/8 in. dark rose balls and flatten slightly. Attach across bottom of crown with buttercream.
Outline crown and base section with tip 4 in light rose buttercream. Fill in with tip 16 stars. Use tip 5 to pipe bead bottom border with white buttercream.
To make letters, roll dark rose fondant into 1/8 in. diameter logs. Shape letters and position on top of cake.
The star tip creates the most celebrated, easily accomplished decorations! The serrated edges of the star tip make ridges in the icing as you squeeze it out. Because fill in requires so much piping from the same bag, keep replenishing icing in bag.

Pretty easy and the result is cute. Doesn't every mom wish she were queen for a day? The cake is pretty in pink, but I would change the "MOM" to my mother's name instead.
