Let’s be honest, at one time or another throughout your life – and most likely on many occasions - your mother has baked or purchased you a cake. Whether it was for your birthday or to commemorate another special occasion, cake has taken center stage at many of our family festivities. So it stands to reason that to celebrate our mothers – those masterful cake deliverers for the rest of us – that we should include a cake to mark Mother’s Day.
In fact, Mother’s Day cakes have long been a part of showing our mothers how much we care about them. While the origins of Mother’s Day differ from country to country, in England it began with Mothering Sunday – a holiday celebrated on the fourth Sunday during Lent and often marked with the baking of Mothering Cakes.
Mother’s Day cakes today come in every shape, size, and flavor. And with access to every retail possibility, we have the option of purchasing anything we want. From pre-made cakes at the grocery store, to pre-ordered cakes from your favorite bakery, Mother’s Day cakes should reflect the personality and unique style of your mother. And – most importantly it should fit her taste. So if she likes vanilla but the rest of the family likes chocolate – it should be vanilla all the way.
For moms who are far away there’s always the option of purchasing Mother’s Day cakes through the Internet; they are personalized, packaged beautifully, and shipped the same day for arrival in time for the big day. It’s a wonderful way to let your mother know you’re thinking about her regardless of how far apart you are.
For those bakers among us, baking Mother’s Day cakes from scratch (or even from the box – we won’t tell!) can be a wonderful way to show mom how much you love her.
No matter how you choose to honor your mother on Mother’s Day – whether it’s flowers, candy, a beautiful card, or Mother’s Day cakes – the important thing is that you do honor her; for who she is and all she’s done.
