Mothers Day Banner-01Mothers day is just around the corner, which means it’s time to spoil that special lady who taught you all you know, loves you unconditionally and may even be your hero, best friend and partner in crime. Reflecting on our past, many of us have a vast amount of memories of baking with our mothers and grandmothers; making a mess of their kitchens, licking the spoon, making delicious goodness that wouldn’t even make it out of the kitchen before it hit our stomachs. Or perhaps you were the cheeky one who would go behind Mum’s back in order to sneak a cookie from the latest batch, just pulled from the oven.

Mothers, grandmothers, aunts. They play a very important role in your life; when you’re a baby, child, teenager and an adult. Their unconditional love is showed in many forms which can make it hard to really express how grateful you are. We have a solution. Anything baked with love is the ultimate gift. Good food is when love is poured in to it.

So this Mother’s Day, show mum she raised you well with the ultimate thank you – a baked (with love) cake. And Mums, do you suspect your loved ones are running behind this year? Request a cake!
