But if you’ve forgotten that Mother’s Day is this weekend (its 12 May, you bad bad child), scoring an exquisite cake can be quite the challenge. But thankfully, we’ve done the legwork and discovered a handful of bakeries that serve up cakes designed to claim the spotlight… and exceed expectations. Blessings, indeed.
Seriously impressive cakes suitable for Mother’s Day coming your way in 3, 2…
For the mom that loves a handmade card
You really get the best of both worlds here: 1) a whimsical dessert; 2) tantalising flavours. Expect a visually pleasing cake created with major TLC — not to mention the rainbow is just the thing to put a smile on your mother’s face. We promise it’s going to be a hit.
Recommendation: Pastel Rainbow Babybreath Cake
Flavour: Double O Chocolate Crunch
For the mom that enjoys a good wine night
If she enjoys a nightcap every now and then, this store whips us their own versions of a mean cocktail. Also, this cake won’t break the bank, a fact only sweetened by the bakery’s wide range of booze-infused desserts. Lastly,
drink eat responsibly.
Recommendation: Gin & Tonic Cake
Flavour: Lime, Gin & Tonic
For the mom that is all about tradition
Traditional with a twist? Heck yes. If your mom is a stickler for tradition, Zee and Elle hits home with their elevated creations and exceptional flavours. Think raspberry basil white chocolate, banana choc chip nutella, and earl grey dark chocolate. Talk about one of a kind, right?
Recommendation: Embroidery cake
Flavour: Vanilla Lemon Toasted Coconut
For the mom that swoons over flowers
For us, nothing says “Queen” quite like a superstar geode and flower-adorned cake; you know, those desserts just decked out in sparkle to keep the spotlight on dear ol’ mom. This cake also comes with a Mother’s Day card to grant a memorable, celebration in one fell swoop.
Recommendation: Petite Rose Quartz
Flavour: Belgian Chocolate Praline
